Bad Monday for Brees.........

ESPN - Brees has rough week with homes in San Diego, New Orleans - NFL

METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees has one house on the West Coast and another near the Gulf Coast. He was worried about both this week.

While wildfires raged near the 6,000 square-foot house he owns in San Diego, a heavy downpour flooded the basement of his place in New Orleans alongside Aububon Park.

"Monday was an awful day," the New Orleans Saints quarterback recalled after practice on Wednesday. "My brother-in-law was in my house (in San Diego) and they got evacuated ... and I have that on my mind and then it rained 6 inches in Audubon Park, the streets are flooding, my basement's flooding, my attic is getting water and I'm just going, 'Could this be a worse day?"

While Brees was dealing with water damage at his New Orleans home, his wife, Brittany, told him that her brother had called from California, asking what to take from that house before heeding the evacuation order.

"Obviously you expect the worst at this point," Brees said, describing his wife as frantic. "She said she told him to grab the wedding album and other than that I really don't care."

Brees' San Diego house is east of Del Mar and west of Poway, which has suffered extensive fire damage.

He said his brother-in-law has been allowed to return since Monday to check on the property and found a layer of "soot just sitting on top of the counters and floors and everything."

Back in New Orleans, Brees and his wife were in the process of cleaning out their basement. Stacked in a corner were boxes of personal items, which were sagging after getting soaked.

Brees chalked up the damage to his properties as a relatively minor inconvenience, well aware that many San Diego residents had lost their homes.

"Both houses are OK, so I just feel terrible for the people who had to go through this once again," Brees said, recalling wildfires that tore through the San Diego area in 2003, when Brees played for the Chargers. "No matter what's going on in your life, somebody else has got it worse, so just always remember that."

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

Rule #1: Don't have a basement in New Orleans. Rule #2: Don't live on a hillside in Southern California. Rule #3: It could always be worse.

I think in New Orleans it's known as an in the house swimming pool. I hear,at times, it's quite popular.

P.S. Having been born in New Orleans, I guess I can say things like that!

HAH, you know that man's got money. Basement in New Orleans, you're either rich or dumb, or both.

It's ALWAYS moist here regardless of if it rains or not.
