Saints Fan Poses With Roger Goodell While Wearing ‘Free Sean Payton’ Shirt [PHOTO]
This guy may be the greatest New Orleans Saints fan of all-time. If not all-time, at least in recent history. He goes by the name of ‘2009ring’ on the website SaintsReport.com, and what he did to Roger Goodell literally made me laugh out loud when I saw it for the first time.
‘2009ring’ was chosen to be one of the participants in a “SiriusXM Town Hall” event featuring NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Naturally, he chose to ask Goodell about the league’s bounty evidence on-air, and even received a Roger Goodell signed football. The crowning moment was what he managed to pull off during his Goodell photo op.
Here is how he explains it in his own words via SaintsReport.com:
During the event, I wore my white Deuce 26 jersey. Underneath I had a black “FREE SEAN PAYTON” T shirt on. I didn’t want to risk any reactions to the shirt before or during the broadcast (there was NFL security EVERYWHERE). So, after the broadcast, I removed the jersey and put it in my bag. They gave us each footballs that Goodell signed for us. I held my football over the FSP part of the shirt until I got right next to Goodell. We made chit chat for a minute then posed for the picture. At that time I lowered the football to my waist to fully expose the FREE SEAN PAYTON message on the shirt.
‘2009ring’ went on to say that Goodell was actually a good sport about the whole thing, but that still doesn’t change how I feel about the jerk. Although, I do wish him good luck on finding a good meal during the Super Bowl in New Orleans this year.
Take a bow ‘2009 ring’ – you will forever be known as a true Who Dat Nation hero.
