NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Move over, Grover! 1 of the NFL's top passers is heading to "Sesame Street."
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is making a special appearance on Thursday's episode of the educational children's educational TV show. He visited the set a few months ago to record the segment, which costars the street's furry red resident, Elmo.
The segment will air Thursday morning on PBS Kids.
Brees, who has two young sons, Baylen and Bowen, taped the segment before the start of this year's regular football season. The show's airing comes as Brees leads the NFL with 4,368 passing yards, putting him on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season passing record of 5,084 yards, which has stood since 1984.
