On the heels of leading New Orleans to a perfect 5-0 record while Drew Brees was sidelined with a thumb injury, Teddy Bridgewater has been honored with a tribute billboard by a local restaurant owner.
Sean Meenan, owner of a chain of restaurants called Café Habana, had New Orleans-based artist Langston Allston create the billboard near the corner of North Rampart Street and Esplanade Avenue the edge of the French Quarter.

Meenan has used the billboard space for tributes in the past, and explained to The New Orleans Advocate why he chose to honor Teddy this go-round.
“There’s just something about Teddy Bridgewater,” Meenan said. “He’s the kind of dude I’d like my 8-year-old son to look up to.”
Meenan pointed out that that, in addition to his prowess as backup quarterback, Bridgewater also introduced the “bike life” dance to the Who Dat Nation’s repertoire of celebration demonstrations.
”I don’t know the man personally,” Meenan said, “but he seems to bring life and positivity to everything he does. And he won us a few football games too.”
The best. Now and forever.
