This is how you take something as disappointing as the Saints loss was, and believe me, I live an hour away and that loss was felt HARD all around here, and turn it into something positive.
Founders of the Boycott Bowl, the wildly popular Super Bowl protest concert that took place on Fulton Street on Sunday (Feb.3), donated $57,404.36 to the New Orleans Recreational Development Foundation during a press conference at the Rosenwald Recreation Center on Friday morning (Feb. 8). Boycott Bowl, which featured an array of New Orleans musicians, from Fred LeBlanc of Cowboy Mouth to Cheeky Blakk to Big Freedia to Choppa, became a sensation among members of the Who Dat Nation who felt the Saints had robbed of their chance at the big game by a poor officiating.
Well done Saints fans, and New Orleans. Wish we could have been there for it.
