Muffler Man now a Saints Fan!
The Muffler Man's red shirt and blue pants were fading (and that was a paint job done long after the one in Sal's photo). Appropriately enough, he now wears a gloriously shiny pair of "gold" pants (no, not metallic -- he's not that flashy) and an equally shiny black shirt enhanced with a gold fleur de lis. This is more than just a sports thing, y'all -- after Katrina, the fleur de lis became our symbol, our stars and stripes.
Muffler dude wears it well!![Kathy Martello, 10/25/2010]
