Rob Ryan soaked in the festivities as Krewe of Argus’ grand marshall today in New Orleans, braving the rainy weather and in turn resembling some sort of deflated version of the Cowardly Lion.
Here are the two key takeaways from the illustrious event, aside from the defensive coordinator’s effortlessly flowing hair:
“I saw him at the Tiffin Inn Pancake House down the street a while ago,” said Regina Ward, 33, who was offering green jello shots to passersby. “And man, he was really putting it away! I’ve never seen a person eat that much.”
Perhaps in recognition of Ryan’s appetite, several people tried to feed him along the route. Near the corner of Severn Avenue and 19th Street, a man in an LSU cap jogged alongside Ryan’s float with a Krispy Kreme donut in his outstretched hand.
Several people tried to feed him along the route? Amazing. Are we talking about the Safari at Great Adventure, or a football coach in a parade? The Ryan brothers have such a beautiful way of blurring the lines regardless of habitat.
As if there were ever any doubt, the spry, sheepdog of a fella snagged the doughnut out of the air, sending the crowd into an expected frenzy.
