Today, Drew Brees became the highest paid football player in history. Some of my friends argue that no one playing a game is worth $20 million for five years. I admit they have an argument.
But so does Drew, and so do I. If sports means so much to the State economy, as I believe sports does in Louisiana, and if sports elsewhere drives similar bargains, I say “Let the bargaining begin.” Drew played the market, and he got his due. I would have done the same!
Along those lines, at the end of the day, Drew Brees is better for Louisiana than our sleezy, smooth-talking politico-Governor Bobby Jindal.
Hey, Drew–Wanna run for governor?
(I bet he’d win!)
