Obama is not the Messiah,

Drew Brees is.

I am so in love with this man. You think he can't possibly be that great, but he is. He's standing in London, about to spank the team that first broke him then fired him because he was broken, and what does he do?

On the edge of a soccer pitch masquerading as a football field, Drew Brees sold New Orleans.

"Just like London is one of those spots where people feel like they need to visit when they come to Europe," Brees said, "well, New Orleans is one of those spots that if you're European and you're coming to the States and you want to know where to go, hey, come to New Orleans. I think the culture is unlike any other in our country and, certainly, you want to share that with the world."
I know that he's just a football player and that one day he'll be traded off to another team or get pissed off and leave. When he talks about the city, though, I don't doubt for a moment that he's here to stay. New Orleans, broken as she was, wrapped her arms around him and said, "You're home."

So many people have done this in the last three years. It still gets me right in the gut when I think about it.

I never had a choice, but they did and they picked her.
"There are a lot of things that still need to be done. But, in a lot of ways, I think New Orleans has come back better than ever."
Thanks Drew. We love you, too.

And thanks to Cait at Shrimp Poboy for pointing this out. Don't know how I missed it last week.

Lol, you get these douches too, huh? You do realize, of course, that anytime you put something negative/positive up about Obama you get lifeless and obsessed Obama lovers/haters ready to pounce as if it matters. You need to add a "no douche" rule to your comment policy!

Oh, and so I remain on topic according to the policy, Jesus is the messiah. Didn't you get the memo?

Really, DB?

Does Jesus have a 70% completion rate?
Does Jesus have OVER 300 yards per game?

Don't get me wrong, Jesus puts up some great numbers. But he's no Drew Brees.

Ah, I'll have to eat my words on that one. Brees' completion rate seems to be holding steady, whereas Jesus' "completion rate" is dropping with each new year.

Brees did have four TD passes last night...

Man, I need to go to confession now. ;)
