Gulfport man gets Brees autograph inked for good


GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - A die hard Saints fan from Gulfport will have Drew Brees forever by his side.

Monday, Joe Bergeron got an autograph of the Saints' quarterback tattooed on his right arm. Bergeron got the autograph Sunday when Brees was in town for a book signing.

Bergeron has been a Saints fan since he was 12. He feels the Brees tattoo is a tribute to a man who has done so much for the region.

"Because he's the greatest, the greatest quarterback to ever play the game," Bergeron said. "I'm from New Orleans. He helped rebuild New Orleans, he helped rebuild the Gulf Coast, spirit wise, and I couldn't think of anyone else I'd rather go to my grave with than Drew Brees."

Bergeron already has another Saints tattoo on his right arm. It's a Fleur de Lis with the number 504 on it. Of course, that's the area code for New Orleans, but it's also his section number in the Superdome.

Bergeron has been a Saints season ticket holder for 13 years now.
