was the centerpiece of a parade in New Orleans this past weekend for Mardi Gras. Hogan appeared as "King of Bacchus" - the Roman god of wine and intoxication. Here are a few snippets from the Associated Press' recap of the event: Despite competition from the Super Bowl, thousands of revelers lined up along streets Sunday as New Orleans wrapped up a big Carnival weekend with another day of parades leading up to Tuesday's finale. A second round of gunfire that marred Saturday night's parade did not appear to deter Sunday's merrymakers. It was the second time during the big Carnival weekend that gunfire broke out on a parade route. On Friday night, a man was shot in the arm out along a parade route, police said. On Sunday, dozens of police were visible on almost every block of the uptown parade route. Hulk Hogan wore a gold, sleeveless vest, red, knee-length tights and a black headscarf. He tossed doubloons to the crowd. Celebrity news site TMZ.com picked also up on the story and wrote:" File this under 'Bad Ideas' -- a leathery Hulk Hogan presided as 'King of Bacchus' at a Mardi Gras parade yesterday. Bacchus is the Roman god of wine and intoxication. The Hulkster's son Nick was involved in a high speed crash that left his passenger, John Graziano, in a coma. Nick was drinking before the crash."
