The Saints quarterback and his coach Sean Payton wagered dinner and a bottle of wine on who would sell more books. Payton got a one-week head start and debuted at No. 8 on the New York Times‘ bestseller list for Hardcover non-fiction.

When was the last book signing where fans arrived the night before and tailgated for a 9AM start?
