Curtains open on the New Orleans Fringe Festival today bringing an extensive array of offbeat theatre to the city for your picking. Tonight at the Joy Theatre, the Suicide Girls reawaken their Burlesque after a five-year hiatus. Treme Brass Band brightens the Candlelight Lounge with their brass sounds and Walter “Wolfman” Washington brings it home at d.b.a. Back on this day in 2006, Drew Brees was setting the sixth highest throwing yard record of 510 yards during a loss to the Bengals at the Dome.


Another Baby Brees Born


Drew Brees has certainly left a legacy in New Orleans. Breesus is also leaving a legacy on the homefront. Today, the quarterback and wife Brittany announced the birth of their fourth child.


Brees Sits Out Scrimmage with Injury


When the New Orleans Saints scrimmaged at the team's Greenbrier training camp on Saturday morning, Drew Brees was on the bench nursing an injury. The elite QB sat out of the practice contest with a strained left oblique muscle, according to the team.


Drew Brees' Drug Test Weekend


Drew Brees has visions of playing professional football long past many of his peers, but those pigskin daydreams apparently didn't factor in that a longer career would also push him to the top of the NFL's PED watch list. Over the weekend, Breesus came back down to Earth when he was selected for two random drug tests.

The summer heat is starting to enter oppressive territory and Sean Payton is talking about Drew Brees' eating habits. It can only mean Saints' training camp is upon us.


Brees, Saints Back USA World Cup Bid


The Dome won't be filled for another few months, but football is in season. In this case, the swampy conditions are in the Amazon, and the Saints are pulling for the Yanks. As the U.S. kicked off their World Cup campaign with a dramatic win over Ghana Monday night, the Black and Gold players were behind their brethren, and Tweeting about it.


Drew Brees Sends Message to Harry Connick Jr. on American Idol (VIDEO)


Harry Connick Jr. is known for being harsh with contestants on American Idol, but Breesus appeared on the show to preach forgiveness to Connick. The locally bred musician and actor was defending his judging style on last night's episode, and Drew Brees made a special video appearance to ask Connick to give the kids a break. 


Drew Brees Reps Who Dat Nation on Colbert Report (VIDEO)


Stephen Colbert was graced by Breesus on yesterday's episode of The Colbert Report, and the Saints' humble quarterback had some Super Bowl advice for his peers Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson. Before shouting out to the Who Dat Nation, Brees praised both the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos and wished them well in Sunday's Bowl game.  


Drew Brees Talks Sherman, Extra Points on David Letterman (VIDEO)


The Saints aren't in the big game and we're not hosting, but New Orleans is still has a place in Super Bowl hype. A King Cake baby already made an appearance in the NFL's pre-Super Bowl late night talk show blitz. Now, it's Breesus' turn.


Drew Brees to Have Familiar Protectors at Pro Bowl


Sadly, Drew Brees isn't gearing up for the Super Bowl. But the Saints' exalted QB will still be calling signals this week and wearing the C on his shoulder. Brees was picked first by 49ers great Jerry Rice as a team captain for this weekend's Pro Bowl.
