(WVUE) - On this edition of FFF: I focus on the popularity of Saints running back Alvin Kamara, the World Cup final, and a treasure in Texas.
At Alvin Kamara's camp on Monday, teammate Marshon Lattimore made a guest appearance. The assembled media asked the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year for an interview. He laughed, said he plays on defense, all the flash is on offense. He still did the interview, but he makes a good point.
Drew Brees is easily the most popular Saint on the roster with fans, and on the national scene. No. 2 on the Black and Gold, I think it goes to Kamara.
Mark Ingram, Michael Thomas, and Cam Jordan are all worthy candidates, but the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year is getting a ton of publicity.
His 1,554 all-purpose yards in 2017 no doubt made him a fan favorite. His look is also garnering a ton of attention. The hair, nose ring, grill, all make him unique.
FOX 8's Chris Hagan even dressed like Kamara for Mardi Gras. Sean Fazende, you guessed it, dressed as the Saints most popular player.
Full disclosure, I root for England. I was pretty bummed Croatia scored two unanswered goals to beat the Three Lions.
Before the match, I already made France the favorites. They're young, fast, and can't be stopped.
Croatia's run has been epic, but it will end on Sunday. Les Bleus win the World Cup, and have an epic party in Paris.
When I go on a road trip, I only ask for a few things from convenience stores off the Interstate. Good lighting, clean bathroom, and some edible food.
Most of the time I get that, but in Texas I ALWAYS hit that criteria when I go to Buc-ee's.
Buc-ee's has 33 locations, all in the Lone Star State. The bathrooms are spotless, place is well lit, and the food is fantastic.
BBQ beef sandwiches, breakfast burritos, fudge, numerous beef jerky options, and a vast array of fountain drink options make this place a must-visit.
Now we just need one in Louisiana. It all most happened in Baton Rouge two years ago.
I'm still holding out hope they come to "The Boot."
