Yesterday's Super Wild Card game between the New Orleans Saints and the Chicago Bears was the first to be broadcast on Nickelodeon, and in typical Nickelodeon fashion, there was a whole lot of fun...and slime! Every time a touchdown was made, slime pouring into the end zone was superimposed on the screen, plus there were lots of other fun Nickelodeon-esque graphics.
Before the game, New Orleans head coach Sean Payton said he would happily get slimed if the Saints beat the Bears. At the end of the game, the scoreboard read New Orleans Saints 21, Chicago Bears 9, which meant Coach Payton had to be slimed. There was no slime "superimposed" on Coach Payton...it was the real thing!
This coming Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head to New Orleans for the divisional playoff. Kickoff is 5:40pm New Orleans time.
