Saint of Equilibrium
 
Brees’ routine thrives on balancing priorities

On September 21, Saints quarterbacks Drew Brees and Chase Daniel prepared in the team meeting room at the Saints facility, anticipating their upcoming contest against the Houston Texans.

Late into the study session, the quarterbacks were surprised by some unannounced visitors: Brees’ wife, Brittany, and their two sons, Baylen and Bowen, walked in the room.

Baylen’s eyes lit up when he saw the podium at the head of the room. The energetic two-year old grabbed the mic and started singing Kenny Chesney songs.

“He literally thought the stage was for him,” Brittany joked.

Along with sharing his father’s stage presence, Baylen also simulates another one of his father’s hobbies: film study.

“We have two Chesney concert DVDs and he will watch those over and over again,” said Brittany. “He will just mimic anything Kenny does.”

The impromptu performance is not an unfamiliar one for the Brees family.

With the countless hours that Drew spends at the Saints facility, Brittany will bring Baylen and Bowen to the facility on a regular basis to give him time to see them before they go to bed.

It’s not unusual for the quarterbacks to take a study break and pull out Guitar Hero instruments to let Baylen rock out.

“Drew knows if he needs to stay late at work, then the kids can come see him,” said Brittany. “We work together on trying to find that balance with getting your work done and family time.”
