#1 quarterback (and character) in the NFL

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!)
