Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will be a hit on Fat Tuesday in Metairie, as grand marshal of Argus.  The parade has become a favorite for families along the Metairie parade route for more than four decades.  Founded in 1972, the krewe is named for the Greek mythological figure depicted as a man with a peacock’s tail, and 100 eyes.  In recent years, the krewe has let commercialism creep further and further into its parade, disappointing some by selling sponsorships and spots on the floats, but its parade is nonetheless a family tradition for many along the parade route on Fat Tuesday.  It is followed by what will seem like thousands of truck floats, showering crowds with throws from the Krewe of Jefferson and Elks Jeffersonians.
