NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A trainer in Lafayette has a striking resemblance to Drew Brees. Now, he’s not exactly the spitting image of the Saints star quarterback. But, it’s close enough.

And it made me think 🤔. Why doesn’t anyone ever mistake me for The Rock?

With all the Drew Brees look-a-like hoopla, I'll just leave this here ...
