Despite the fact that a controversial no-call led to it happening, the Los Angeles Rams are headed to the Super Bowl. Los Angeles came from behind to stun the Saints in New Orleans, punching their ticket to Atlanta with a thrilling 26-23 victory in overtime. It’s been a magical year for the Rams, and now, they’re one game away from potentially lifting the Lombardi Trophy.
A fun subplot heading into the game was Rams corner Marcus Peters’ awfully strong feelings about Saints coach Sean Payton. Back when the two teams played in the regular season, Payton mentioned New Orleans’ desire to go at Peters, which led to this absolutely tremendous response from the Pro Bowl corner involving consuming one of New Orleans’ finest culinary exports, gumbo.
It’s something that popped up again during the lead-up to this game thanks to Rams coach Sean McVay.
Fast forward to Sunday evening and Peters, before celebrating on the field at the Superdome, went to talk some trash to the Saints’ coach.
Then, in an absolutely delightful moment of jubilation, Peters ran around screaming about his desire to eat gumbo.
You can tell this is something that Peters had on his mind for a while, and you can’t even begin to imagine the joy he feels about making the Super Bowl and getting to stick it to someone who doubted him. You can, however, know the joy that comes from consuming a bowl of gumbo, so I highly recommend you go do that.
