Big but Not-So-Easy Cleanup

In Mr. Jones' estimation, the mess approximated a "mini-Mardi Gras" (he'll be able to make a proper comparison in exactly one week). But he was rooting for the Saints all the way: "You had to hope for them to win. But I said, 'If they win, we're gonna have record trash.'"
