Mardi Gras float takes direct shot at ‘The Ringless’ Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons came seriously close to winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history. Instead, they blew the biggest lead in Super Bowl history, allowing the Patriots to come back from a 25-point deficit.
It was a crushing loss for Falcons fans, but those in New Orleans aren’t losing any sleep over it. A float at Mardi Gras took a direct shot at the Falcons, calling them “The Young, The Ringless.”

On top of the float, they even put a voodoo doll wearing a Falcons jersey with pins stuck in it.
It’s no surprise to see the city of New Orleans adding fuel to its rivalry with Atlanta, but this was a jarring blow. It’s personal now.
