If Rivers announced today, does Brees announce tomorrow? This afternoon? I imagine this is coordinated to a degree to allow proper time for reflection between announcements and also to not draw attention from the games this weekend.
Leeroy, I think I read rivers announced today because it is St. Fabian’s day, and that is the saint that watched over athletes. And it is also the anniversary of the game he played with a torn ACL against the pats.
