SportsNaut- Brees planned to spend a period of time with 10 year-old Hunter Glass from Shreveport. Glass has cerebral palsy, and it has always been his dream to meet Brees, per KSLA.com.
Brees told the young boy that he was there to meet him, which brought tears of joy to Glass. Glass received an autograph and some one-on-one time with his football icon. According to KSLA, it was “The Pay It Forward Networking” organization that made the connection between Glass and Brees a reality.
Don't worry Hunter. If Drew came up and tapped me on the shoulder I would probably be a little overwhelmed too. You know, until he told me to move so he could continue to visit more sick and/or unfortunate children. Still, while he walked past to continue offering up more charitable donations and using his popularity for nothing but good he would probably leave a trail of my joyous tears in his wake as well. You'e not the only one that wouldn't be able to handle your emotions around someone as impressive as the greatest Saint in franchise history.
Anyway, this is just yet another reason why Drew Brees is the best possible ambassador for the city of New Orleans and it's football team. Never not enough time in the day to spend a couple minutes not only engaging, but getting to know a fan who wasn't dealt the most formidable of hands. Doesn't matter if he's the center of attention in a jam packed bar. It appears that Drew Brees just has that inherent ability to make anyone and everyone feel special, and my man Hunter that just had a dream come true is no different.
P.S. The correct answer to the headline is during contract negotiations, and only during contract negotiations.
