Live Blog New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers live updates
The pink “B” on the jacket and visor of Saints coach Sean Payton was more than just a fashion statement, it was the symbolization of a promise to a special girl and support for everyone who battles cancer.
Bailey Leon, an 11-year-old girl, has been battling cancer at the Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans and is a huge fan of the black and gold and her team’s coach. Bailey and Payton have talked a few times and have developed a friendship.
The last time Payton met Bailey was on Saturday when he promised her a game ball from the team’s game at the Chicago Bears on Monday.
Thanks to one of its best games of season, Payton will not only keep his promise with a game ball from a win that put the Saints in sole possession of first place in the NFC South, but he will make a special girl happy.
