Drew Brees the pitcher. Who knew!
June 20, 2010 – New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees,
who won Super Bowl MVP honors in February, threw the ceremonial first pitch
before today’s game against the Mets.
Before Brees took the mound, I spoke with the proud father,
whose son joined him on the hill, for a “5 Questions” feature that will appear in the August
issue of Yankees Magazine.
Brees took special pride in showing me the details in his
Super Bowl ring. And I was equally as proud to show off my World Series ring to him.
“Our ring features several symbols of the city of New
Orleans,” Brees said. “It has the St. Louis Cathedral, which is located in the
heart of the French Quarter. It has musical notes, our Super Bowl parade float
and the Superdome. When I look at it, it brings back memories of every game of
our Super Bowl season.”
