Both Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett are good friends with New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton. Good enough friends that the coach invited them to sit in the press box at Sunday night’s NFC Championship game against Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings in New Orleans.

The Saints won in overtime 31-28 with a 40-yard field goal from Garrett Hartley. They advance to face Peyton Manning (another friend of Kenny’s) and the Indianapolis Colts at the Super Bowl in Miami on February 7th.

In 2007 and 2008, Sean Payton invited Kenny to work out with the Saints at preseason training camp. The Saints missed the playoffs both years, and before this season Payton jokingly told Kenny to stay away this year. With the way the Saints are rolling, Kenny may not get an invite next year either.

No Shoes Radio will broadcast live at the “Hooters Super Pool Party” in during Super Bowl week. More details will be announced soon.

    I was pulling for Favre and the Vikes but like the Saints as well. Any photos out there of Kenny and Jimmy in the press box hanging out drinking margaritas?
