DeGeneres joins Saints at practice

Ellen DeGeneres joined the Saints at practice Friday in Oxnard, Calif., and with the NFL being a copycat league, the Falcons immediately brought in Conan O’Brien, the Buccaneers added Jimmy Kimmel and the Panthers signed Jay Leno.

Oh, the poor Panthers. They still can’t catch a break.

You might ask why DeGeneres was at practice in the first place — perhaps teaching them some dance moves? DeGeneres, a native of Metairie, La., has long been one of the most visible and vocal Saints supporters. In fact, Saints QB Drew Brees gave DeGeneres’ mother a pair of Super Bowl tickets two years ago.

And yes, I know entirely way too much about this.

The key question I have: Why is she dressed like Hall of Fame and ex-Packers WR Don Hutson?
