Ever since Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV at the end of the 2009 NFL season, many fans have considered the Saints quarterback their saving grace.
And given his effort to help rebuild a community ravaged by Hurricane Katrina - when he's not setting a record on the football field - it's easy to understand why.
So when we offered our iReport community the chance to ask Brees a few questions, they ran the gamut from what it takes to become an NFL quarterback to how Brees deals with his quasi-diety status.
But our favorite question was from 7-year-old Tristan Larsen of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, who invited Brees to attend his birthday party on May 10.
Watch the video to see his response to Tristan’s invite, and why Brees doesn’t quite buy into being called “Breesus” by fans.
Happy early birthday Tristan! And a big thank you to Drew Brees and our iReporters. You guys rock!
