PLAYERS: Drew Brees
TEAMS: New Orleans Saints

Via Sportress of Blogitude:

New Orleans Saints quarterback and his lovely wife Brittany attended a recent showing of Leonardo DiCaprio-starring, Baz Luhrmann-directed flick based upon the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic, “The Great Gatsby.” And the couple attempted to up the enjoyment and participatory factor by regaling themselves in attire befitting a film about the Roaring Twenties.

Brittany looked very much the flapper and Drew Brees? Well, he looked like a guy trying to look like he was dressing up like a guy from the Roaring Twenties. Period attire is harder for dudes.

The accompanying tweet:


There you have it. And while this is akin to how “Star Wars” fans dress up like characters and creatures from the film when they attend a showing, it’s much less dorky. Or maybe not.

Saints Nation: Who Will Be Brees' Backup in 2013?

Every time this discussion comes up, I feel it is accompanied by the caveat that we hope this player will never get to see the field. If he does, the season has no hope. The Saints' chance at success starts and ends with Drew Brees' health. But while any hope at a second Super Bowl hinges on him playing, there's a reason the Saints keep two quarterbacks on the roster...

Saints Nation: RIP Chuck Muncie

It's very sad that I've followed the Saints long enough that a lot of my long time heroes are starting to pass away. Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, Sam Mills, Frank Warren, Dave Waymer and Norman Hand are just a few that have left us way too young. Today former Saint running back Chuck Muncie died at the age of 60 from a heart attack. May he rest in peace, and God bless...
