A while back when the Redskins played the New Orleans Saints, I spotted this soaked man during the telecast:
This man has now been labeled as the Unknown Who Dat, and the search has begun to find him. You’ll find it strange that he is drenched at a game that featured no rain or snow. I believe that is a drench of sweat and excitement for the Saints miraculous comeback.
As it would turn out a website would be created to search for the great Unknown Who Dat – http://findtheunknownwhodat.com/. People are encouraged to send in their photos of the Unknown Who Dat. They are trying to find this man and give him some tickets to a game or something of that nature.
Yesterday, the world may rest easy as the Unknown Who Dat found has been identified. It turns out that he’s not an angel sent from the heavens to instill fear in Saints opponents while blessing the Saints with good fortune. His name is Bill Harris, he just loves the Saints and happens to get sweaty.
His name is Bill Harris. He really loves the Saints and is happy he got to go to the game as he hasn’t seen a Saints game in some time. HE HAS NEVER BEEN TO THE SUPERDOME!! Tickets to the Redskins game was a birthday present from his son Scot, who got the tickets from his boss. Their family has been Saints fans since 1966! That was the year Dave Dixon got the ball rolling for the Saints to be our team! Their dad went to the Lee Circle Saints ticket office when the first season began in 1967, with hopes of being the first in line. He wasn’t first but he got great seats around the 10 yard line. He said, “That’s where all the action is!” He was right.
Bill was in Tulane Stadium for Gilliam’s kick-off return.
He remembers Archie Manning throwing an 80 yard TD to Danny Abramowitz.
Bill has been living in the D.C. area and has been pulling for his Saints his entire time there!
Bill is coming to New Orleans for the Cowboys game. As soon as we have flight details, we will announce what time he will be arriving at the airport.
There will also be a meet and greet at the Carousel at the Hotel Monteleone where they will name a drink after him. Day and time to follow.
