what the heck ill post my TR too.
My flight was scheduled to leave @ 5:55pm out of Nola airport. I left work at 2:15 to give myself time in case there was traffic. Nola is about a 2 hour drive from here. The drive goes well; save for a bit of traffic in the red stick. I hate that city so much.
I get to the airport around 5. I go to the wrong side of the airport and have to walk all the way back to get to my terminal. Oh well, so i get in line to have my bag scanned. I only brought one carryon for this trip. #packinglightftw.
As i get close to my turn, about 7-8 people from the scanner; i hear a guy tell his gf in front of me "look drew brees". I look up my phone at him with a 'wtf' look and he nods to the direction behind me...
Now if you don't know, Drew Brees is practically a God here. He's amazing. Since arriving in '06 he's turned one of the worst franchises in all of sports into superbowl winners and contenders year after year.
So I turn around and there he is in all his glory; standing about 7 ft from me. First thing i realize is this dude is small. Barely pushing 6ft and not big. No wonder he gets so many balls batted down at the LOS. He's wearing one of these hats, forget was name is atm:
and grey vneck and jeans, with some converse sneakers.
I make contact with him and out of total bewilderment just sort of nod my head at him.
"Do i go talk to him? Ask him for autograph? Do i have a pen? Do i leave him alone? why is no one else talking to him?"
These questions run through my head as i feel a bump. The line is moving. Any interaction will have to wait. He's in a 1st class line that's different from mine. I scurry through check in and keep tabs on him. He hurries through his scan and is walking pretty fast towards his terminal. I make my way behind him as i'm texting my fellow saints fans what's going on at that very sec. I see one person stop him as he's walking but brees briefly speaks to him but never stops walking...i guess he's not in a mood to talk to fans.
He stops at gate D5 and i snap a pic:
