Saints News, 1/15/14: Happy Birthday Drew & Baylen Brees!

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Drew turns 35 and Baylen turns 5 today. I hope the Saints' current star QB and the Saints' future star QB both have great days today. In other somewhat sad news, Himself (aka MtnExile) wrote yesterday that he is shutting down his Who Dat Social Club due to his disgust with NFL management. Please go over and read his article that I have linked first for you below. As always, he provides an excellent and thoughtful read. If he stops posting articles over there, I hope he will occasionally return here and share his wisdom as he once did.
