Saints Fan Gave The Perfect Homage To Halo’s Master Chief During Playoff Game
Video Games and sports often intersect due to the similarities between some of their biggest shared demographics, but it’s not often that the passionate fan base of one intersects with the other’s. Sure, every now and then a major sports athlete will promote a big video game title, or PGA golf stars will attempt to execute the Fortnite dances, but it is rare for people to point out how similarly the most devoted fans will celebrate these pastimes. It’s fairly common to see fans wear costumes and makeup at NFL games, but one Saints Fan has taken this tradition to a masterful and nerdy level with an homage to Halo’s Master Chief.

The official Halo Twitter account posted a gif taken from footage of this past weekend’s NFL playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles. The clip shows a costumed Saints fans dressed up in full Master Chief armor. Next to him also happens to be a fan posing as a Saints’ themed version of Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Granted, this Maul seems to be a Saints version of the character, opting for yellow and black face paint instead of the traditional red and black.

NBC was quick to point out how unique these costumes were, not just at the game, but for the NFL in general. They shared a photo of the pair, with the description “when you’re headed to Comic-Con but a Saints game breaks out.” The Saints won this particular game, so hopefully we see this more of this iconic duo before the season ends and the duel of fates begins.
