“Pay da man” has gone public. Antonio “Tony” Le Mon, a lawyer from Covington, wants you to donate money to help convince Drew Brees to remain in black and gold. Or something.

Le Mon has set up an irrevocable trust called “Drew Brees Fans Step Up Trust Account,” and endowed it with the staggering amount of $500. Plus, he’s got a template site on the interwebs, so you know this is legit. And Drew can do whatever he wants with the money—it’s completely up to him. We trust him that much.

In 1976, Lorne Michaels, producer of Saturday Night Live, offered the Beatles $3,000 to do a reunion concert on his show. He later upped the offer to $3,200—an extra $50 each! Plus, they could do whatever they wanted to with the money—”If you want to give less to Ringo, that’s up to you.” It is believed to have been a gag (although Paul McCartney says he and John nearly went through with it). So now we have to ask: is Le Mon kidding? I mean, after everything else has failed, this is what will sway Drew? Or does someone perhaps want some cheap publicity?

I’m not even going to give the website a link. Better to link to SaintsWin, who explains the math behind Drew’s motivations. I was of the opinion that sitting out a year would be an enormous blow to Drew’s total earning power—but not so, according to SW. And I believe him, too, because he uses math, and my motto regarding math is “better you than me.” Perhaps that’s why SaintsWin is a successful venture capitalist, while I’m just a lowly grease trap technician in a barbecue restaurant. There’s a lesson here, kids: if you want free barbecue, stay away from math.

The following is a guest paragraph written by the channelled spirit of stujo4…

Besides: Drew is about to make a shitpot of money as a vulture capitalist. That’s right: he and his wife are looking for a management partner with experience in the apparel industry, so they can sink a chunk of change into the child labor market in Bangladesh or Indonesia or one of those places where life is cheap and profits are easy. That Drew, he’s such a role model.

We now return you to our regularly-scheduled post…

But what the hell…maybe it won’t matter if Drew sits out a year, because Chase Daniel is looking pretty good so far. And I have a funny feeling that Brees will hold out, and that Daniel will become a hero in relief, because of this:

Before flying to Dallas for a long Memorial Day weekend, Daniel safely parked the team’s Ferrari-like offense at its training facility and handed the keys to acting head coach Joe Vitt.

Dallas!? There’s that word again! Now Jerry Jones is after not only our coach, not only our quarterback, but our backup quarterback as well! And what’s Chase flying to Dallas for, hmmm? Maybe to report to the coordinating committee? Is this all some massive conspiracy?

(See how easy that is?)

On the Jukebox

I know this is supposed to stay New Orleans-themed…but it’s my site, right? And here is what one fan thinks a Saturday Night Live reunion might have sounded like.

    Starting an apparel line is not vulture capitalism, that would be like the crimes against nature perpetrated by Bain Capital and Mitt Romney. And what a Jimmy John Come Lately idea. Every TV and film starlet has their own clothing line, which really will be produced in China under near slave labor conditions. How does that increase employment in New Orleans? He puts his clothes in existing stores and boutiques and they maybe have to hire another sales girl/gay guy? Maybe he needs to have dinner with Wendell Pierce and get some guidance on how to really help people while making money. Unless that’s not his real motivation.

            Flagged!!!

            Sorry, kiddo……you can’t strike-through “Bloviating Ignoramus”. George Will had to stay up all night on the toilet in order to pull that one outta his ass just so he could use it on television the next day to describe Trump. And he actually has quite a vocabulary.

            When a man works that hard to “pinch one off”, his effort should be properly acknowledged.

        Barry and the labor unions are not vulture capitalists. They are vulture socialists. Get it right.

    Jesus Christ, I’m the king of Pointless, Immature Saints Fan Fundraising and even I think this is stupid. At least donate to something that will give you some entertainment value back.

    Seriously, though, it’s virtually guaranteed to go to the Brees Dream Foundation in the end, so it’s legitimately for a good cause. If the guy’s on the up-and-up. Since he’s tying his name to it, and not writing under a pseudonym like some kind of hack, he probably is.

    I guess my real problem is that I don’t really have any sympathy for Drew Brees right now. If I was a criminal, I’d probably be making plans to rob a clothing store but leave the Brees jerseys on the rack. As it is, I feel guilty about stealing music online, so that’s probably out.

    This is the most pathetic attempt to get an autograph from Brees yet.

        Safari or Firefox are the two browsers in my dock, and I’ve been on a Firefox jag for 5 months now…

          I get the same thing. I had just assumed it was this IE7 I use on my work computer. It took a while to get all the issues worked out on my site with old IE versions.
