2010 Super Bowl & Saints Celebration ~ Jim Hennen Contributor

The following video is 3+ minutes. It is good music and the guys are having a good time. A Rapid City High School friend of mine send the video link and a description of the "Buddy D Dress Parade" in New Orleans.

Even if you're a Colts fan, it's kind of fun.

For those of you who did not get to experience the “Buddy D Dress Parade”… Rebecca Ferris is doing on the whole Buddy D/ Bobby Hebert/ Abdul D Tentmakur story. She is doing a documentary on the whole story, and shot an interview with me on Sat., and came down to shoot Mousey and I getting ready for the parade on Sunday… very nicely done.

For those of you who don’t know the story. Buddy D was a local sportswriter, broadcaster, and radio personality in the New Orleans area for 50 years, and when the Saints went 5-0 in 1993, and everyone was calling in saying we were going to the Superbowl, Buddy said he would wear a dress and parade down Bourbon if they made it. Since he was sooo big, he would need a tent maker to make his dress (this is where Abdul D Tentmakur comes from)…. Well, after Buddy passed away in 2005, Bobby Hebert decided to keep the promise… and it came to pass in 2010 that we MADE IT! So, WWL plans this Buddy D/ Bobby’ broads Dress Parade, and expected about 500-1000 guys to dress up with Bobby and our crew to parade from the superdome to bourbon street……. Well.... much like EVERYTHING we do in New Orleans, we did it to excess! There were over 5000 men (and a LOT of young boys) dressed, and over EIGHTY THOUSAND folks that came out to watch… It was a sight to behold… check it out!

PS….Mousey won the “Best Dress” contest… the “Old lady outfit”
