QB Drew Brees to reign over Bacchus for Carnival

Quarterback Drew Brees will soon be presiding over a new

krewe.

The New Orleans Saints player – already considered royalty by

many in this football-crazed city – has been named King of

Bacchus.

Brees made the announcement via Twitter on Saturday. It was

later confirmed by the Krewe Bacchus, known for its celebrity

kings.

The Bacchus parade is set to roll Feb. 14, two days before Mardi

Gras and a week after the Super Bowl. With the Saints 12-0 heading

into Sunday’s game with the Atlanta Falcons, fans have high hopes

their team will make it to the championship.
