But there’s another sport taking over the Brees household.
“My boys all of a sudden became really into soccer,” Brees said Tuesday (June 12). “They’ve been football-crazed for the last couple years but they have all of a sudden gotten into soccer.”
So much, so that one son wanted a haircut like one of the top players in the world.
“My son went got a haircut a couple days ago and he told the lady when he sat in the chair I want it to look like Cristiano Ronaldo,” Brees said. “So, we had Cristiano Ronaldo running around the house right now. And then one of them wants to be Messi and then one of them wants to be somebody else so it’s, we’ve got the world well-represented, the World Cup well-represented at our house right now.”
The World Cup, which begins Thursday in Russia, will come to the United States in 2026, according to a FIFA announcement early Wednesday. The U.S., Canada and Mexico with jointly host the 48-nation event.
The Brees boys achieved some notoriety in January for their roughhousing while on the sideline at the Pro Bowl, and Brees has talked in the past about how they counted Odell Beckham Jr. as one of their favorite players.
