VIDEO: Drew Brees Can Hit Home Runs, Beat You In Any Sport

So, Drew Brees' life really couldn't be any more storybook at this point. Overlooked out of high school, he went on to a record-setting career at Purdue. Overlooked coming into the NFL, he's graduated to the ranks of the NFL's elite, turning in an MVP-caliber season last year, and ultimately leading the Saints to a shocking Super Bowl victory over the man that beat him out for that award, Peyton Manning.

Still unimpressed? Well okay, here's Brees hitting home runs from both sides of the plate in a charity softball game. Please note: this guy is a freak.

He played football, basketball, and baseball in high school, and in fact, he once figured his best shot at a pro career was on the diamond:

"Baseball was really the sport I thought I had the best opportunity of playing at the next level, " Brees said. "I wanted to be a three-sport athlete in college: baseball, basketball and football."

He's also well-known among Saints teammates for his exploits on the basketball court, was a top tennis player as a teen, and has a 3-handicap on the golf course. So basically, he's better than you. At everything.

At least he's got that birthmark to keep him humble... (Like women don't totally love that).
