The Who Dat Nation was out in numbers Sunday afternoon in the capital city to get a glimpse of the man who led the New Orleans Saints to a Superbowl victory. Black and gold faithful lined up for hours outside of Border's bookstore at the Mall of Louisiana, waiting to have their books signed by the Bayou State hero.
It's all part of Brees book tour. Just this weekend, he took a three-day tour through Louisiana and the neighboring areas to meet some of his biggest fans. His book Coming Back Stronger hit bookshelves earlier this month.
Hundreds of people crammed into the bookstore to get a signed copy of the book. Brees signed for two hours. "I obviously came here with a commitment. I'm going to take care of everybody," he said. "As many boks that need to be signed, as many fans that need to be taken care of. That's what I wanted to do."
