Your son should be your biggest fan, but that apparently isn’t the case in the Brees household.
Brees appeared on “Conan” and talked about his seven-year-old son, Baylen, who actively roots against him especially when the Saints take on the Giants.
“He’s loyal to a fault,” Brees said. “He goes to Newman School in New Orleans, which is the same school attended by Eli Manning and Odell Beckham. The green and white runs deeper than the blood obviously.”
Rooting against his father and staying loyal to his school is one thing, but Baylen and his siblings even add insult to injury after their dad comes home from a rough game against J.J. Watt.
“I get home after we played the Texans this year and J.J. Watt kind of had his way with me, sacked me a few times,” Brees said. “I walk in the door battered, bruised, frustrated, but then I see the kids and I’m just waiting for that moment to embrace them. The minute I hug them they say, ‘Dad let’s play football. You be Drew Brees and we’ll be J.J. Watt. You stand there and we’re gonna hit you.’”
