Even if you aren’t a football fan, chances are you will watch at least part of the Super Bowl whether it be the commercials, the halftime performance, the game, or the National Anthem performance. Well, the games deciding which teams will vie for the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy took place over the weekend, and boy were they nail-biters.

Both games were forced into overtime in the last seconds of regular time and one even had a very controversial play, but even so, people can’t stop talking something that happened before either game even started!

In the days leading up to the NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams, Jimmy Buffett began teasing his upcoming performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” for his beloved Who Dat Nation.

A huge Saints fan himself, Buffett couldn’t wait to perform in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

When the time came for Buffett to stand at the 50-yard line and belt our nation’s anthem in front of the 74,000+ people in the stands plus millions watching from home, the “Margaritaville” singer took off his Saints ball cap and placed it over his heart.

We’re not even sure he made it through the entire song before people started tweeting about his performance.

What didn’t help his cause was when he did a mic-drop as he walked off the field.

Some fans even blamed him for the Saints’ loss!

The reactions weren’t all bad though, a lot of his fans, who are called Parrot Heads, had his back!
