Headliner's Ball: Super Bowl XLIV

JoeSportsFanSenior Analyst IJune 24, 2016

Needless to say, sports headline writers across the nation are VERY pleased that the NFL lifted their efforts to ban/regulate the usage of New Orleans’ signature “Who dat?” phrase.  Where is the creativity, fellas?

How about a “What A Brees…” or something?  We’re a little short on snappiness and token puns.

A very special “Headliner’s Ball” shout-out to Yahoo! Sports for bucking the trend and going with something a little more creative and way snappier. If there are no New Orleans merchandise owners rushing delivery on customized t-shirts with this headline, they’re missing one heck of a business proposition.
