Brees gets bumped to Thursday by Letterman

Well, if I’ve lost my mind, this isn’t evidence of it.

I tuned in to The Late Show With David Letterman at 11:35 p.m. ET, planning to watch Drew Brees’ appearance, and then to post anything new or different he might say, after spending pretty much the whole day saying all sorts of things to all sorts of folks.

But when Dave announced the guests, Drew’s name was mentioned.  LeBron James, yes.  Drew Brees, no.

As it turns out, Drew has been bumped to Thursday.  And so he’ll head to Philly on Wednesday for his grievance hearing before Richard Burbank, and then Drew will return to New York for Thursday’s show.

Unless he gets bumped again.

UPDATE 12:05 a.m. ET:  He apparently won’t get bumped.  Brees writes on his Twitter feed that he taped the show today.  Hopefully he won’t sign his new contract before Thursday night.
