New Orleans VooDoo Fever - Catch It!
Honk if You Love the VooDoo
I'm Stuck on Stingley*
My Second Home is a Tomb in the St. Louis Cemetery
I Wanna Have Wimprine's Love Child**
These are just a few of the marketing slogans/fan messages bandied about or found on signs, t-shirts, bumper stickers, banners, etc., around New Orleans as the official Rebirth of the New Orleans VooDoo is upon us.
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, we have exciting, high-octane Arena F****** Football Action returning as the NFLPA and football as we know it burn to the ground.
Dave's Saturday Satire fired us up this morning, but the truth is the VooDoo actually played their first game of the 2011 season last night. Make the jump to climb into the arena of Arena Football, CSC style!
* - Derek Stingley is the head coach.
** - Danny Wimprine is the starting QB.
