The outpouring of thanks for former New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, and his contributions to the state continues as Louisiana gives a standing ovation the now-retired NFL star. The latest message of thanks comes from Saints hero, Steve Gleason.
Former New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason, who has been battling ALS, is a huge fan of Pearl Jam and good friends with guitarist Mike McCready. Pearl Jam headlined the first night of the 2013 Voodoo Experience in New Orleans City Park on Friday night. Gleason, who now has to use a computer to speak, joined the band on stage to introduce them to the crowd.
