Look, we don't want to be known as the fans that are poor sports, but if we're being honest, we're still a little mad about the NFC Championship game. We'll get over it, and live to cheer on our Saints next year, but it still stings that we won't get to celebrate the Super Bowl with our boys.

But fortunately for us, we live in a state that has sooooo many other things to do, that we might not even miss watching the big game on Feb 3. So if you choose to watch the Super Bowl, we're not going to hold it against you, but I have some suggestions for other fun things to do in case you're boycotting. Just saying! Let's hold our heads high, though, and know we are better than petty feelings. And how great is it that we can do the things below anytime we want. Yay Louisiana!
