For many years, the Saints were so bad that fans wore paper bags over their heads and called the team the "Aints". Now, they've won the Super Bowl, and some Who Dats think its time to bury that nickname.

Trombonist Glen Davis Andrews and the Baby Boyz Brass Band will lead the "Aints" jazz funeral through the areas of Treme and Faubourg Marigny in New Orleans tomorrow. It starts at five p.m. at the d.b.a. bar on Frenchmen St.

Fans are encouraged to bring their old paper bags and put them in a coffin.
