Drew Brees can swing a bat

On Wednesday night, Saints quarterback Drew Brees participated in teammate Heath Evans’ charity softball game.  Before the Saints faced a group of military all-stars, the real fireworks from Brees came during a Home Run Derby.

Brees bashed long balls from both sides of the plate.  (Our friends at SportingNews.com have some of the video.)

What did you expect?” Evans told James Varney of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  “He’s the Super Bowl MVP.  This is
cake for him.”

But, alas, the Madden curse possibly has begun to take root for Brees.  At the plate with the Saints trailing by one, 18-17, Brees popped out to end the game.

Somewhere, our friend Paul Allen yelled, “This is not Detroit!

    Ya, it’s Minnesota where Superbowl dreams go to die.
    Brees can pop out to end the game, as long as he goes 1-0 to start the season.

    It was a breeze for him.

    I grew up with Drew, and he’s always been a winner (Robert E. Lee Elementary holla!). This may surprise some folks, but his strongest sport was always… wait for it… SOCCER! Dude could score goals from deeeeep out.
    For the record, he was always nice to everybody, despite being the best athlete in Central Texas and placed in Aim High with the nerds. He’s just a really cool guy, and he deserves all the good that’s come his way. I wish he would get traded to the Cowboys or Texans already…

    I heard that Brett Favre mowed the field with his tractor before the game…….

    I don’t remember Ray Lewis being too affected by the curse.

    Okay there buddy! Your playing softball. You wont even make the playoffs this year

    Everything was going well until Pfc Gunnar Olafssen of Minnesota slid hard, cleats up, into Brees on the basepath.
    The Saints QB hobbled off the field and it was later revealed that his ankle was grotesquely swollen and he had massive bruising on his upper thigh, as well as pain in his chest and shoulders. It’s not known when he will be ready to play and the possibility exists that the vicious attack may end his career.

    Yeah, if it was Detroit and someone was swinging a bat, it’s probably an armed robbery.

  11. READY2CRUSH says: Apr 29, 2010 12:28 PM

    I realize they always bring the fence in for those celebrity events but that thing was probably at 225 feet. He hit 6 homeruns…. WOW!!!
    It should at least be close to a real Men’s softball field, 280-300 ft. I still wouldnt have been all that impressed, but its better than how I feel now. He basically won for being a midget at a dwarf contest.

  12. Nick says: Apr 29, 2010 12:30 PM

    I don’t know what’s the big deal. I do this every night at softball, only I hit ‘em 400′.

    He would be the perfect human if not for that horrendous mole. Drops him down to average at best.

  14. K-DIZZLE says: Apr 29, 2010 12:40 PM

    Wow! My 5 year old son plays tee ball on a bigger field than that. Drew sure is a monster at the plate!

    ray lewis was on the cover for the 2005 season. In December he got injured and didnt play the rest of the season. I would say that counts as being affected by the curse

    Somewhere Paul Allen is touching himself inappropriately over the stupid ass “This is not Detroit” comment. Send his bitch ass to the D, we are so bad here our last mayor went to jail.

  17. KingOkra says: Apr 29, 2010 1:06 PM

    Some of you must have pathetic, miserable lives to make such moronic statements about the mole on Drew’s face. That’s the best your feeble mind can come up with to “diss” Brees? Wow, you should have stayed in school, or perhaps gone to school. When he and his mole whip your team’s ass again, maybe you can make fun of his haircut or the shape of his nose, or formulate* some other simplistic thought that won’t make your brain explode. (* sorry to use such a big word – find a dictionary). Hey, look on the bright side-at least your job at McD’s is safe. Get a friggin’ life, losers.

    K-DIZZLE, they played on a minor league baseball team’s field. Your kids plays tee ball on a bigger field? Really? That’s quite amazing.

    Man, Drew Brees has a big ass mark on his face that looks like a giant skidmark. And MAN, have you seen his hair lately??? What was he thinking??? He should probably grow his bangs out really long to hide his ugly nose. He is also very short. Well,… gotta get back to work, these damn burgers aren’t gonna cook themselves….

    Not only did he win the homerun derby, he was hitting them out both left and right-handed.

    So what you’re saying is… Drew Brees is a Switch Hitter? He likes to bat from both sides of the plate? I thought he just liked dudes…

    So…these guys go out and play a game for charity and all people on here do is find a reason to hate. Losers.

  26. Ilovefoolsball says: Apr 29, 2010 3:48 PM

    People don’t let the fat losers who comment negatively on Drew get you down. Chances are they are just that, fat losers who’ve never had a girlfriend or if they ever have been in a relationship they had to use a forklift to bring her to dinner and the jaws of life to widen doorways so she could make it inside the establishment that they chose to eat at (hopefully not a buffet, yikes!).
    So they sit in their cubicles at their computer bringing on the hate because their team sucked last year, wishing harm on Drew Brees, making bold predictions about the Saints upcoming “non playoff year” (yeah, they’re so good at making these statements, I bet they said the Saints would win the Superbowl last year too, they’re spot on!) but don’t get upset with them. If you led as miserable a life as they do you’d want to find some sliver of satisfaction in the attempt to bring someone else down.
    No need to take up for Drew Brees, he’s the Superbowl MVP, a millionaire, got a hot wife, two kids and is on top of the world. Instead, feel sorry for the poor saps who feel the need to constantly sound bitter and resentful like an exgirlfriend who constantly talks badly about her exboyfriend’s new girlfriend.
    I know most of you poor souls don’t know what an exgirlfriend is or have ever even felt the skin of a woman, but one day, after you’re done all the bashing, mocking, and loud mouth diarrhea coming out of your holes subsides, maybe then you’ll finally get lucky on match.com and a girl will want to meet you, don’t blow it by talking badly about Drew Brees because chances are, she finds him cute. ;)

    Any chance Florio can get to bash Detroit man, Paul Allen is a scumbag so is Brett Favre and Im starting to think the same about Florio…

    Drew Brees would be an All-Star if he played MLB
    Drew Brees is better than Lebron in the NBA

    Yes the Madden Curse is fake but a jinx kept you from winning a Sports Emmy.
    Makes Sense.
