According to the AAF SmartBrief today, the National Football League, has laid claim to the expression "Who Dat?"
In fact, they have gone so far as to send Cease and Desist notices to two stores in New Orleans that are selling t-shirts. Spare me. What a bunch of greedy bastards.
According to the Times-Picayune web site (link below) "Before it became a rallying cry of fans of the New Orleans Saints, Who Dat was used as a cheer by St. Augustine High School. And before that it was perhaps first heard in minstrel shows in the later 1800s."
See the poster at right.
Jeeze leave it to the NFL to throw cold water on something.
