By now you’ve probably heard of Saints Coach Sean Payton’s ambitious plan to launch a new non-profit organization called “Payton’s Play It Forward.” What you probably don’t know is that the organization may never have gotten off the ground if not for one fateful night over a bottle of wine with a Texas chick who doesn’t take no for an answer.
