The Who Dat Nation! Are you with us or against us?

Who dat? is a chant of team support by sports fans, used especially by fans of the New Orleans Saints, an American football team. The entire chant is: "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints? Who dat? Who dat?"

Funny story. Pull up a chair...

You see, back in The Day when I was working in Toronto Canada as a music producer and sound engineer, we used this crazy stuff call "magnetic tape". These great big pancakes of magnetic ribbon rolled onto spools about a foot across and 1 inch thick, costing anywhere from $50 to $100 (CAN) a piece. On them you could record, maybe, 5 or 6 songs. You'd spend days and weeks recording individual instruments to separate tracks on this "magnetic medium" and then at the end of it all you had to MIX DOWN all these separate tracks to a STEREO MASTER... your basic "what comes out the left speaker and what comes out the right speaker" thing that you'd now probably call an MP3.

So what did we use to MIX DOWN to? Well ANOTHER piece of "magnetic medium" called a DAT. DAT stood for Digital Audio Tape. Very small (about the size of Arcaico's brain - matchbook sized - VERY compact) it could hold up to 2 hours of STEREO music and it was encoded at 44.1 Khz, or, as some of you older members may recall, the same "quality" as your average CD music disc (which, by the way is NOT a "magnetic medium", but an "optical" medium).

Over the 90's and early 2000's I recorded hours and hours of songs and radio jingles to DAT tape. I've still got a briefcase FULL of the little digitized yet still "magnetic medium" whatsits. I still have my DAT recorder, a machine much MUCH bigger than your average cassette deck ever was (ironic as the DAT tape was about a third of the size of your average cassette tape) and once in a while, if I've had just a little too much wine with Nancers, I'll dig out that old briefcase and pull out a DAT or two and listen to what I thought was "good original music" back in The Day.

So - to answer your question. I have lived and breathed in the DAT nation.

Thanks. Thanks for listening. There's some coffee and cabbage rolls over on the counter. Help yourself.

Dear Miami: Get ready for the Who Dat Nation coming for the Super Bowl
By Mark Lorando, The Times-Picayune
February 01, 2010, 2:06PM

Scott Threlkeld / The Times-PicayuneSaints fans celebrate the overtime win for the NFC Championship on Jan. 24 -- and the chance to go to Miami. Dear Miami,

The Saints are coming. And so are we, their loyal, long-suffering and slightly discombobulated Super Bowl-bound fans.

While there's still time to prepare -- although a few hard-core Who Dats will begin trickling in Monday, most of us won't arrive until Thursday or Friday -- we thought we'd give you a heads-up about what you should expect.

First things first: You need more beer.

Yeah, we know. You ordered extra. You think you have more than any group of humans could possibly consume in one week. Trust us. You don't.

New Orleans was a drinking town long before the Saints drove us to drink. But it turns out beer tastes better when you're winning. (Who knew?) So let's just say we're thirsty for more than a championship; adjust your stockpiles accordingly.

And look. When we ask you for a go-cup, be nice to us. We don't even know what "open container law" means. Is that anything like "last call"?

It's Carnival season in New Orleans (that's Mardi Gras to you), and we'll be taking the celebration on the road. So don't be startled if you walk past us and we throw stuff at you; that's just our way of saying hello.

Oh, and sorry in advance about those beads we leave dangling from your palm trees. We just can't help ourselves.




Times-Picayune archive
February is also crawfish season, and you can be sure that more than one enterprising tailgater will figure out a way to transport a couple sacks of live mudbugs and a boiling pot to Miami.

When the dude in the 'Who Dat' T-shirt asks if you want to suck da head and pinch da tail, resist the urge to punch him. He's not propositioning you. He's inviting you to dinner.

And if you see a big Cajun guy who looks exactly like an old Saints quarterback walking around town in a dress ... don't ask. It's a long story.

We know that crowd control is a major concern for any Super Bowl host city. Our advice? Put away the riot gear.

Reason No. 1: Indianapolis is going to lose, and their fans are way too dull to start a riot.

Reason No. 2: New Orleans showed the world on Sunday that we know how to throw a victory party. We don't burn cars. We dance on them.

Reason No. 3: Even if we did lose, which we won't, leaving the stadium would be like leaving a funeral, and our typical response to that is to have a parade.

Speaking of which: If you happen to see a brass band roll by, followed by a line of folks waving their handkerchiefs, you're not supposed to just stand there and watch. As our own Irma Thomas would say, get your backfield in motion.

And hey, Mister DJ! Yes, we know you've already played that stupid Ying Yang Twins song 10 times tonight, but indulge us just one more time.

To us, "Halftime (Stand Up and Get Crunk)" isn't just a song; it's 576 points of good memories. It's the sound of a Drew Brees touchdown pass to Devery Henderson, a Pierre Thomas dive for first down on 4th-and-1, a Garrett Hartley field goal sailing through the uprights in overtime.

It's what a championship sounds like. You may get sick of hearing it. We won't. Encore, dammit.

Inside Sun Life Stadium, you may find your ears ringing more than usual. We're louder than other fans. Seven thousand of ours sound like 70,000 of theirs.

Don't believe us? Ask the 12th man in the Vikings huddle.

Some people think it's just the Dome that heightens our volume. But you're about to discover a little secret: We can scream loud enough to make your head explode, indoors or out.

It's not the roof. It's the heart.

Well, OK, and the beer.




Susan Poag / The Times-Picayune
Don't be surprised if there are more Saints fans outside the stadium than inside. A lot of us are coming just to say we were part of history, even if we can't witness it up close. The Saints are family to us, and you know how it is with family: We want to be there for them, whether they really need us or not. Because we know our presence will mean something to them, whether they can see us or not.

Come to think of it, seeing as how you're taking us in for the week, we pretty much regard you as family, too. So we're warning you now: If you're within hugging distance, you're fair game.

Hugging strangers is a proud Who Dat tradition, right up there with crying when we win.

Most sports fans cry when their teams lose. Not us. We've been losing gracefully and with good humor for 43 years. Tragedy and disappointment don't faze us. It's success that makes us go to pieces.

Hurricane Katrina? We got that under control. The Saints in the Super Bowl? SOMEBODY CALL A PARAMEDIC!!!

So anyway, don't let the tears of joy freak you out. We're just ... disoriented.

OK. Let's review:

Order more beer. Throw me something, mister. Suck da heads. Wear da dress. Stand up. Get crunk. Hug it out. Protect your eardrums. Pass the Kleenex. Hoist the trophy.

See you at the victory party.

Faithfully yours,

The Who Dat Nation

I usually go to ESPN's website, find a game that I want to join in on a conversation, and let all my crazy sport opinions hit their threads. I guess we could turn PSC into a sports website. Professional Sports Center. Nah.

Funny Story: the band I play accordion in (Zydeco kick ass back breaking Groove Action) played a gig last night, and we did a rousing renendition of WHEN THE SAINTS COME MARCHING IN in honour of this situation. Wink

(well, I find it funny... Neutral )
