Ah, yes, St Patrick’s Day: when I remember I look ridiculous in green and therefore own nothing in the color save @ByLukeJohnson’s old Packers jersey.
@Jolie_AF @NOLAnews (In very very short) A second-line is a New Orleans street parade w brass band. Comes from jazz funeral tradition of celebrating lives of loved ones after death. Traditionally, after casket: 1st line = mourners 2nd line= band 3rd line = ppl who fall in
Btw, major props to the @NOPDNews officer who hopped in with the Tom Benson second-line when to got to Champions Square. (She had mad moves, too.)
