Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Said the 59-year-old fan after security and police tackled and subdued him, "I just wanted to try out." This guy apparently wasn't aware that lots of beer plus the intense heat of the midday sun just aren't a wise combination. In other news, the following injured players will sit out tomorrow's Saints scrimmage: Seneca Wallace (groin), Tom Johnson (hip), Ray Shipman (hamstring), Martez Wilson (elbow), Marques Colston (foot), Patrick Robinson (knee), and Victor Butler (knee).
