"We started out as three blind refs. And, we're just, that's what we felt the refs were and we're just depicting them."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Jerry Dellucky, Hammond, Louisiana Resident:
"Football down here in the South, in New Orleans, is our passion. We live and die by it. What's right is right and what's wrong is wrong. That's how we go about it. But, like I said, we turned a negative into a positive, even though we're still mad."
The streets of New Orleans were filled Tuesday with thousands of revelers along parade routes hoping to catch beads, others in costumes walking through the French Quarter and Mardi Gras Indians wearing finely beaded costumes.
Tuesday marks the final day of the Mardi Gras season, which began January 6.
Ame Von and Sarah Roberts, best friends from Waco, Texas, were decked out head to toe in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold as they took in the sights of their first Mardi Gras.
"We are having a wonderful, wonderful time," said Roberts. It's been an amazing experience. I brought one whole suitcase of nothing but costumes, costume stuff, so we could just dress up almost every day that we were here in some way, shape or form."
But despite the fun, Saints fans were still not over the NFC Championship game and the "no-call."
Several dressed up as blind referee or yellow penalty flag.
"Well, we're obviously, we started out as three blind refs. And, we're just, that's what we felt the refs were and we're just depicting them," said Nancy Halbert who had come from Baton Rouge to watch the parade.
