The Dat Pimp costume came about quite by accident. When Ron Carruth’s sister was recovering from breast
cancer surgery, morale was at an all-time low. One day, Carruth put on one of her wigs and some jewelry and did a little stand-up routine to try and make her smile. It worked. And when he saw the renewed light in her eyes, he suddenly knew everything was going to be okay.
In 2014, at the urging of his older brother, Carruth decided to take that look to a Super Fan level and call himself Dat Pimp. Now he not only attends games in costume, but also takes part in charity events whenever he can. Tastefully tailored and sufficiently blingy, he and his costume make an immediate impression. Now he’s got
other Saints fans smiling as well.
For Carruth, there are no words to describe the feeling of the game day experience. It’s not about just cheering
for your team. It’s also the awesome time spent with other Saints fans. His sister is doing well now, and she still
gets that glow in her eyes when she sees him dressed for a game. She’s always brought out the best in him, and Carruth thanks her for being this Super Fan’s biggest fan.
