New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees always loves to connect with his fans and today at practice was no different.
Brees gave lucky fans a nice cool treat from the hot sun when he had Plum Street Snowballs come out to practice today to serve the delicious treat. It was a welcome surprise to the first few hundred that came through the gates.
Not to be left out, after practice Brees also ordered up snowballs for players as well as a nice end to a hot day. Obviously watching his regimen closely, safety Malcolm Jenkins even inquired about the calories, but I think he burned them off.
It was obviously not only a move to thank Saints fans for their support, but also a bonus for their disappointment the last few days. Rain has closed practice to the public since Thursday after fans began lining up three hours before hand.
Another bonus the fans got to see was the very first practice for the Saints in full pads. The team will hold practice again tomorrow from 4:00 p.m.-6:45 p.m. and then are scheduled off for Monday.
