Only In New Orleans!
One week before Super Bowl Sunday, hundreds of men wore dresses, in a parade to honor the late sportscaster Buddy Diliberto, who was a broadcaster for the Saints for over 50 years.
Buddy D, as he is affectionately called, had promised his WWL Radio listeners that if the Saints ever made it to the Super Bowl, he would wear a dress. Buddy D didn't get a chance to see that dream become a reality, but hundreds of his fans, and his radio talk show successor, "Cajun Cannon" Bobby Hebert, a former Saints quarterback, tried to help fulfill his promise Sunday -- with varying degrees of success.
