• Mardi Gras float mocks 'ringless' Falcons


    NEW ORLEANS - It feels like just yesterday that the Atlanta Falcons came oh-so-close to winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history.

    Instead, the unthinkable happened and the Patriots erased a 25-point deficit -- the largest in Super Bowl history -- and shocked the Falcons in overtime.

    While Atlanta fans won’t soon get over the loss, New Orleans Saints fans are having some fun with it.

    A float called “The Young, The Ringless” is making noise at Mardi Gras.

    The float features a ringless Matt Ryan, “Dirty Bird” gumbo and a voodoo doll wearing a Falcons jersey with pins stuck in it.

    The Falcons swept the Saints this season and lead the overall series 51-45. However, the Saints have one Lombardi Trophy -- something that the Falcons are still chasing.
