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.

Jimmy Buffett was in Miami on Monday night at Shane Battier’s Battioke charity event. Held at the Fillmore Miami Beach, the event benefits Battier’s Take Charge Foundation.

The signature fundraising event has become a favorite of those who attend as well as those who perform. What started as Clutch City Karaoke in Houston, has morphed into South Beach Battioke – a karaoke competition for Shane and his teammates as well as other celebrities. Giving these athletes a chance to shine off the court, the level of entertainment at Battioke is hard to find elsewhere. Attendees witness their favorite players letting loose and testing out their karaoke chops in front of a fun-loving lively audience, while raising money for The Battier Take Charge Foundation.

The event also featured a charity auction, in which Buffett was the high bidder ($24,000!) on a locker room-used celebratory bottle of champagne from last year’s championship that was signed by the team.

Buffett also took to the karaoke stage for Marvin Gay’s “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” with Pat Riley. Watch a short video of it on Instagram.

Shane Battier is a big parrothead, and even quoted Jimmy when he joined the Heat in 2011.
