The black jumpsuit and sequined cape he’d worn to theNew Orleans Saints’preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens on that fateful August weekend were still hanging in the bathroom where he he’d left them three months earlier. He took the muddy, oil-stained outfit to the dry cleaners and made an impassioned plea.
“I told them, I lost all of my pictures and family valuables – I need this,” Becker said. “I don’t care what it costs me, I want it cleaned.”
Because the dry cleaners did their jobs, Becker was able to do his at Saints games again in 2006. Becker, aka super fan Fleur D Licious, returned to the Superdome and the Saints went on to win the NFC South Division and advance to their first NFC championship game.
Here is a recent screen shot from Fleur D Licious’ Facebook page.
Here is one of his videos before the 07 Saints vs Falcons game.
He also tells you why Saints fans should skip Home Depot, and shop at Lowes.
This is my favorite Fleur D Licious video.
This was when the Saints were 13-0 with the upcoming game against the Cowboys.
Last but not least is his video after the Saints made it to the Superbowl
