Isn't "moonlighting" as a future U.S. President a breach of his contract? :P

Ok, now if I actually knew what drew brees looks like I might have been able to see if he looked like hayes

I'd rather see a story about Drews beers.
 
2012-08-13 03:58:24 PM  
I guess he used makeup to cover up his birthmark.

If I actually I knew what Hayes looked like, I might have been able to make the connection with Drew Brees.

They couldn't show a side-by-side comparison for those of us who have no idea what Brees looks like?

WWL is New Orleans based. They assume that all interested parties already know what Brees looks like.

Not that difficult to find on your own, though.

Is this what Canseco was tweeting about?
 
2012-08-13 04:03:53 PM  
Clearly the only mystery is from where the "birthmark" comes. Clearly it's now been revealed as a scar, the story of which will be revealed in a sequel (pending grosses).
 
2012-08-13 04:04:01 PM  
Um.


That doesn't look a whole lot like Drew Brees.

Maybe more like Steve Carrell

Yeah, we do a lot of time travel around here.

I'll be impressed if he sports Rutherford's beard while playing. Facemask penalties would be 10 times more awesome.

Debate: Rutherford's beard vs. Chester A. Arthur's mutton chops.

IIRC, Rutherford B. Hayes was called "His Fraudulency" behind his back due to the fact that Samuel J. Tilden probably won the election of 1876, but in a backroom deal Hayes was awarded the electoral votes of Florida. Chester A. Arthur was only picked for VP due to political machine connections and thought of a boob in general, and then assumed the presidency upon the assassination of James Garfield. When news got out that Garfield had died, one prominent congressman was said to have exclaimed, "God help us, Chet Arthur is president!"

So yeah, both guys are really awesome, lol.

You gotta admit, that is one damn handsome future president. That twinkle in his eye, that cute little smirk, the fetching neckwear... you can just hear him whispering in your ear, "Yeah, baby, tomorrow I might steal your election and end Reconstruction, but I promise tonight will be worth it."

I like that they assumed everyone would know what Drew Brees looks like. Farking sports sheeple.

I just went and did a GIS. 99% of the pictures are of Hayes when he looked more like Charles Darwin than Drew Brees. It seems that one photo is the ONLY one that looks like Brees at all.

So, regardless of how this article tries to make this coincidence slightly amusing, and tries to make it look like it is genuine and not a fake, I call shenanigans.

Video of the Oprah / Birthmark incident


gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Brees should have put a bounty on her for that. Kill the head and the body will die. Killshot on oprah? $25,000. Cartoff on Oprah? $10,000.

That's right dammit. And I'll tell you something, brother: Nobody tries to pull the wool over my eyes regarding time travel.

NOBODY.

Almost as if photography at its inception was only available to wealthy people (or others of prestige, like a president). It's possible Hayes was only photographed as a "youngster" the one time. The rest of his pics were either shoops or Presidential-type portraits.

This "hey, this kinda looks like a current or former Saints player" thing might as well become a meme. Maybe tomorrow someone will post a picture of a log cabin that suspiciously looks like Willie Roaf.

I met him in person. His farking neck was the size of my waist. And I wear a 33. The only other local player I've been more scared of was Norman Hand. Not many people know this but that fatty could haul ass if he absolutely had to.

/both were super nice guys, btw
