WHO DAT?

Saw this Sunday morning near the Hy-Vee Drug Store on Blairs Ferry Road in Cedar Rapids. Guy's wife was driving the minivan while he hopped out and stuck these in the ground. Saints logos all over the van's lift gate.

These were put up by my family. Originally from Iowa, part of my family moved down to New Orleans in the '80s. We are all big Saints fans, and my aunt and uncle wanted to bring the WHO DAT Nation to Cedar Rapids and surrounding areas.

you mean "Who's that?"

Erika Brighi says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 6:09 PM

These signs were put up by my family. We have had family in New Orleans since the '80s and all of us up in Iowa are huge fans. My aunt and uncle put these up because they wanted to bring the WHO DAT Nation to CR.

Erika Brighi says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 6:11 PM

Ooops, guess I didn't know my post went through the first time, sorry :) GEAUX SAINTS!

eeeeeeek says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 6:12 PM

So you are admitting to littering..... wow. That is a hefty fine! I hope you did not use your real name....

eco green says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 6:17 PM

So you admit your aunt and uncle are littering, that is a big fine!

Gericke says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 6:53 PM

I think it's that the "aint's" had to steal a saying from the movie waterboy how about something orginal!!

Iowa Guy says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 6:57 PM

Why would you admit to littering? Thats not even the worst thing, your a Saints fan? Gonna take more the cajun food and fried chicken to win this game...........

Talk about uninformed says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 7:14 PM

Gericke I wasn't aware that "The Waterboy" was released prior to 1980... I remember going to see it when I was in college... If what you say is correct Adam Sandler must be OLD as hell.. Or possibly you have no clue what you are talking about!

eeeeeeek says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 7:50 PM

If you look up "Who dat", you will find out it is very racist. Suggesting that African Americans cannot speak American English correctly.

Scaddylocks says ... on Sunday, Feb 7 at 8:47 PM

Wow...what was meant to be good fun, had to be spoiled by a few pouty people. I am a colts fan, but GO SAINTS

Way to keep the Saints spirit alive!!! Huge Saints fans here! "Who Dat!" I wish that would have happened where we live..We would have grabbed them for sure! Nice to see Saints fans around Iowa!!

Guest says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 12:40 AM

P.S..Kinda funny..You see different posts on different sites with people wanting to correct Who Dat..Geaux Saints!

truefan says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 12:49 AM

Everyone's a Saints fan now, just like everyone was a Colts fan when they went to the Super Bowl a couple years ago. BANDWAGON FANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Bears!!

Guest says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 1:20 AM

Born and raised in LA. NOT a bandwagon fan here!

timmy0509 says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 8:38 AM

Brighi, the signs were great! I'm a Bears fan so I didn't care who won! It was great to see the title go to a team that had never won it before. I saw the signs when I was back in CR this weekend, my last thought was about litter. Get over it people.

Vickie says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 10:25 AM

If you are so concerned about litter maybe you should get off the computer and go clean up the ditches etc. Really people can you just give people a break. There always has to be a Debbie downer....P.S. Congrats Saints!! oh and Im not a bandwagoner!!

joe says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 10:45 AM

Dumb

Guest925 says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 10:47 AM

GO SAINTS!!!!!!!! It's sure great to see the good guys win. That was an awsome game.Played well and coaching was stupendeous.

Iowa Transplant says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 10:48 AM

I too was born and raised in La. and have always been a Saints fan. Yes even during the last 40 years when we weren't so good. I know Waterboy didn't coin the Who Dat phrase and it isn't racist. It's La.! Kinda French/Creole and all the good stuff!

saints fan says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 10:49 AM

we were in New Orleans after the playoffs it was a crazy party, "Who Dat, Go saints"

Go Figure says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 11:51 AM

Drew Brees, Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints are role models that our young kids can look up too. It's disturbing some here feel the need to put down the good things people do. Shameful

leave me alone says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 12:11 PM

some people would rather you not put signs in their yards, (there were signs in yards too)

Debbie says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 5:48 PM

ECO Green obviously has a deep seated anger directed to anyone that can find something in their lives that brings them happiness and meaning. I imagine he is spending his time trying to figure out how to stop Global Warming!!!

GUEST says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 6:32 PM

THE WHO DAT THING IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING THAT DREW BROUGHT TO THE TEAM TO GIVE THEM SOME TEAM SPIRIT. nOTHING ELSE NOT RACISIM I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYTHIN GHAS TO BE ABOUT RACE. GET OVER IT YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE AND THAT IS HOW GOD MADE YOU.

Guest says ... on Monday, Feb 8 at 8:42 PM

The Who Dat has been around for years and years I am from there and if a sign was in your yard then my dad put it there for a reason maybe someone he is related to lives by there! If it were the hawks then no one would say anything! WHO DAT!

Guest says ... on Wednesday, Feb 10 at 6:13 AM

Leave Me Alone-there were signs in yards of people we knew. We did not put any in yards of strangers.

GuestHater says ... on Wednesday, Feb 10 at 7:10 AM

So you're placing signs at random on property belonging to businesses, but we're suppose to believe you're considerate enough to put signs in yards of homes belonging only to people you know? Riiiight....

Guest says ... on Thursday, Feb 11 at 10:37 AM

We put them on street corners, not in businesses or yards of strangers...what is the real issue here?

Guesthaterhater says ... on Thursday, Feb 11 at 5:03 PM

Those signs aren't gonna hurt anyone. Who's "we're", you and the other uptight crybabies? Take your skirt off Betty White.

GuestHater says ... on Friday, Feb 12 at 5:07 PM

Guest: Last i checked, the street corners weren't your property. Guesthaterhater: I'm not wearing a skirt, it's a kilt. But, nice to see your secret desire is to see a dried-up, old woman in the buff!

McBlaah says ... on Sunday, Feb 21 at 4:33 PM

instead of who dat it should be who cares...
