Sean Payton Has the Congas to Prove He's a Parrothead

FRENCH QUARTER -- As Jimmy Buffett's "Free Sean Payton" shirt indicated Sunday night, the the Saints Head Coach does not currently enjoy the right to roam the sidelines. Buffet reiterated the Saints situation by dedicating the song "Limbo" to Payton. But as Buffett sang while Payton played the congas, "If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane." To the delight of Parrotheads who made it into Woldenberg Park, and even those who were turned away, Payton surfaced on the Big Dance Concert Series stage last night for Buffett's Final Four weekend closer.


After embracing Buffett, Payton tapped through the Afro-Cuban percussion part with Buffett on "Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitiude." The song might well resonate into the week for Payton, when the Coach heads to New York to meet with NFL Big Cheese Roger Goodell about the appeal of his bounty punishment.
