Jimmy Buffett dropped into West Virginia on Tuesday to visit with his pal Sean Payton (Saints head coach) and watch his favorite NFL team at their training camp:
Buffett visited Saints camp at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia to take in the final Saints full scale scrimmage before their exhibition opener Thursday night. Multiple media reports indicate that the singer/songwriter/author/actor/entrepreneur hung out on the sidelines and watched the team go through drills and chatted with head coach Sean Payton, Saints broadcaster Bobby Hebert and Marshall Faulk of the NFL Network as well.
Being born in South Mississippi and growing up in Mobile probably was a harbinger of Buffett becoming a Saints fan. He has remained a fan over the many years no matter where his travels take him.
Buffett was in attendance for two of the biggest games in team history; the NFC championship game win at the Superdome over Minnesota in January of 2010 as well as the only Super Bowl appearance in team history when the Saints beat the Colts in Miami two weeks later.
