Sunday night, Drew Brees, speaking from Emeril's, is talking about what is happening in New Orleans. The crowd at the bar rose to give Brees and some mates an ovation, then the crowd in the entire place stood.
"I can't tell you how happy I am, we all are, to be helping this city in some small way,'' Brees said. "To be here right now, it's ... it's unimaginable. We even had some Eagles fans come up to us and congratulate us. One of them said to me: 'We hate losing, but we couldn't have been beaten by a better team, in a better city.' That made me proud.''
What a half hour. What a day.
