Brees' & his Mother Mina Brees ARE at WAR !!!


Saints' Brees tells mother to pull his image from political ads

Associated Press

AUSTIN -- New Orleans Saints' quarterback Drew Brees has
asked his mother to stop using his picture in TV commercials
touting her candidacy for a Texas appeals court.

In commercials running on Austin stations, Mina Brees had been
using a picture of her son in the uniform of his former team, the
San Diego Chargers, to emphasize her ties to football.

"I think the major point here is that my mother is using me in
a campaign, and I've made it known many times I don't want to be
involved," Drew Brees said Monday.

Mina Brees, an Austin attorney, is running as a Democrat for a
spot on Texas' 3rd Court of Appeals. She said replacement
commercials that omit any mention of her son were taped last week
and sent to stations on Friday.

She said she did not anticipate upsetting her son and that
"everything in the ad was true."...............click on link for more juicy stuff
