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.
