VIDEO: LSU Band Plays Saints-Lions Game Halftime Show

If you're not in New Orleans this weekend, you're pretty bummed about it. LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide fans meshing on Bourbon Street, the Saturday night New Orleans Saints playoff game, and a full moon have turned perhaps the country's best party town into the stars-aligned center of the sports world. With even more partying than usual, so no worries about neglected partying.

In perhaps the weekend's finest act of synergy (PARTY SYNERGY), LSU's band served at the Superdome for the Saints game -- where they weren't charged for admission, since this isn't the BCS.

Even many Bama fans root for the Saints -- my understanding of non-Tide/non-Auburn football loyalties in Alabama is that there's some sort of split between the Saints, Falcons and MORE BAMA. Before the game, when the Tigers band played the school's fight song, "LSU" chants filled the dome. At a NFL game! Pretty awesome.

Either way, this all lined up very nicely, even for the two guys grumbling about LSU's band providing the evening's intermission entertainment:
