After Drew Brees broke an NFL passing record that stood for nearly three decades, his teammates called on him to make a speech in the Saints' locker room.

"This record isn't about one person. There might be just one name that goes in ledger under the record, but it's really about the team," Brees told his teammates. "I want everyone to feel a huge part of this, that this record would not have been possible without them."

It was quite a night for Brees and the Saints - a record and a rout.

When I lived in the Nerw Orleans area during the 1980s, the Saints fans showed up at one game with paper bags on their hears heads and with eye and mouth holes cut into the bags.

On the bags they had written “The Ain’ts.”

Bet they wouldn’t do that today.

HooRah for the Saints, my son’s favorite team.
