Brian Baumgartner’s cool Secret Santa gift

During the recent TCA press tour, The Office’s Brian Baumgartner was asked who he’s picking for the Super Bowl:

“Drew Brees will lead New Orleans to the Super Bowl,” he said. “Definitely they’re going to stop the Cardinals. They’re going to have a tough time against Dallas I think the next week. I think it’s going to be the Chargers and Saints in the Super Bowl, and if we get that far you can call me and I’ll tell you who will win.”

There’s a story behind Baumgartner’s confidence in Brees. The two met a couple of years ago while both were playing in a celebrity golf tournament, a relationship that allowed Baumgartner to execute one of the all-time-best Secret Santa gifts for a displaced Saints fan.

  1. Awesome job, Brian! I wonder how much the autographed jersey is worth in Schrute Bucks and Stanley Nickels?

  2. Wow, this is an amazing story- because my two favorite things in life are The Office and New Orleans and our Saints. WHO DAT?!?!

    Let’s hope Brian is right and it’s my Saints and the Chargers in the Superbowl. Glad he’s such a nice guy!
