The New York Post has a story today about a man who has built an army of rain gear for the New Orleans Saints.
It looks like a lot of rain has fallen, but this guy’s got a couple things going for him.
The first is that he doesn’t have a lot to show for his efforts.
He doesn’t make a ton of money from his gear sales, but the gear he makes is a big deal, because it helps keep the Saints and their players cool while they prepare for the next game.
The other thing?
The New Orleans Police Department has seen fit to reward the guy with a bounty of $250,000.
The story begins with a tip from a local radio station.
“A tipster tells me a good guy called the station saying he saw this guy on the street with a bunch of rain jackets on,” the report says.
“They also said he had a hoodie on and a pair of gloves.
The guy was talking to them about the Saints game when he got back and they gave him the cash.”
The police department doesn’t specify which game this man works for.
He seems to be targeting games like this one, where teams play at a low temperature and players need to wear waterproof gear.
When the team is playing at home, it’s usually the Saints who get the bulk of the rain.
When they’re on the road, though, the rain doesn’t seem to be much of a problem.
But this guy is using the Saints gear to help the Saints keep the fans cool during the storm.
The police report goes on to say that when the police were called, they found the man in possession of three large bags of rain-wicking gear, all bearing the New Orleanians logo.
The police report also states that the gear was packed in boxes that had tags identifying them as items of “special importance” for the department.
The police don’t mention how much money the man has made, only that he’s “now earning a lot more than a million dollars a year.”
The story ends with a quote from the police chief who said the guy was doing the right thing.
“This is a guy who is going to be a huge asset to the department in the future,” the chief said.
