| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Sean Payton and Odell Beckham were both at the Pels game last night courtside - Fun Bunch on 4/17/14 at 10:03 am|
Sitting twenty chairs apart, BUT they were both texting a lot.
To each other? It would be unfair and completely wreckless to speculate if it was to each other, so I will:
They were sending each other Emojis the entire game.
OMG! What does it all mean?????
