NEW ORLEANS (WWL-TV)— If the NFL was hoping that the blown call in the NFC Championship would be forgotten anytime soon, they can guess again.

On the heels of a couple of PGA Tour players wearing hats addressing the ‘no-call’ that cost the hometown New Orleans Saints a likely berth in their second-ever Super Bowl, singer Jimmy Buffet came out for his set at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival dressed as a vision-impaired NFL referee.

The choice of outfits met with the approval of the fans, still hurting from the non-call and its aftermath.

Buffet typically wears Hawaiian-style shirts at his concerts.
