“Who Dat! Who Dat! Who Dat say they gonna beat them Saints?” This is a phrase, or a chant that you’ve probably heard from an overzealous sports fan wearing black and gold – maybe even that crazed fanatic is you. If so, they or you are part of the Who Dat Nation – a constituency of Who Dats. Is all this Who Dat talk still unclear? Let us be clear – a Who Dat is a New Orleans Saints fan. It is a Saints fan that stays true and loyal to their team through highs and lows. We wear our colors proud, play our Saints songs loud, and sometimes break out into impromptu second lines. Who Dat!
