Defender Picks


Rob Ryan Buys a Round for Ms. Mae's After Saints' Win

Rob Ryan's fist-pumping on the sidelines wasn't the end of his celebration after yesterday's Saints win over the Dirty Birds. Once he got out of the Dome, the defensive coordinator wanted to let WhoDat Nation share in his postgame jubilation. Soon after the game ended Sunday, the Dude-apparent strode into legendary Uptown dive  Ms. Mae's (4336 Magazine St.), and laid down enough cash for more than a few fists of post-game drinks.


“When he walked in the whole bar clapped,” said Ms. Mae’s bartender Jason Matherne.  


While most of the team presumably partied downtown, Ryan made quite the splash at the 24-hour neighborhood bar, slapping down a Benjamin before heading out.    


“He put down 100 bucks and was like buy everybody a round and keep the change," Matherne said.


Anyone who has seen the sun come up outside of Mrs. Mae’s knows $100 can buy a lot.


"In here, that’s like a fortune,” said Matherne.


The Saints hired Ryan, the son of Buddy Ryan and brother of Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan,  to revamp a Black and Gold defense that surrendered yards like Mae's regulars down doubles. In addition to giving the team's defenders some much-needed confidence, it seems the former Dallas DC is already abiding the Crescent City.


“We think it’s pretty cool that he’s so down to Earth.  He comes in and gets Rolling Rock," Matherne said. "He doesn’t drink anything fancy.  He drinks the cheapest beer we have,” said Matherne. 


Hopefully, we can keep the wins coming and drinks flowing.   


NoDef contacted the Saints PR Department for comment, but they did not respond by press time.
