January 15, 2007 - Buddy D, the ultimate New Orleans Saints fan, once
said, "When you go to Heaven after you die, tell St. Peter you're a Saints fan.
He'll say, 'C'mon in, I don't care what else you done, you suffered enough.'"
Bernard "Buddy" Diliberto
pledged on numerous occasions to his listeners that he would wear a dress
on Bourbon Street if the Saints ever reached the Super Bowl. Annually, the
New Orleans Saints faithful fans would tease Buddy about his promise to wear
a dress if the Saints ever won a Super Bowl. He never got close to having
to make good on that promise, though, as we all know, he certainly wished
for that walk on Bourbon Street in a dress.
When Buddy died in 2005, Bobby Hebert, The Cajun Cannon, took over his radio show; he also took over the promise. Now it is up to Bobby Hebert to carry on this tradition. Bobby Hebert has said on-air numerous times that he will fulfill Buddy's promise. If the Saints do get to the Super Bowl, Bobby Hebert would wear a dress and walk down Bourbon Street in honor of the late Diliberto. As Bobby Hebert has
said over the airways during the 2006 New Orleans Saint's season, "I will be
'twitching' in high-heals down Bourbon Street."
In mid-January 2007, the New Orleans Saints made it to within one (1) win of going to the Superbowl. Bobby Hebert joked
about the challenge, "There's a group called 'Buddy's Broads'
and they want to march in the dresses in the Mardi Gras parades, but I told them
it was a one time deal. I'll have no problem finding a dress, I'm sure they will
have quite the selection. The challenge for them will be finding me some heels
to fit my feet."
Well, We won't see Bobby Hebert in a dress this year due to the 39 - 14 New Orleans Saints loss to the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship. Bobby Hebert has said on-air that he is kind of relieved. He had visions in his head about second-lining and twirling the umbrella while doing the jig. Maybe next year!
