For the record, Saints QB Drew Brees still has a "nonexistent" relationship with his mother, so he probably didn't sign off on her recent plan to dupe Texas restaurants into paying her for the name of their own business.

The situation is a little confusing, but apparently Mina Brees, who is a lawyer in Austin, sent of a series of letters to Houston restaurant owners informing them that she had purchased their "assumed business names" from the county clerk. Her company, Chicksports Inc. (seriously?), was gracious enough to offer the names back to them for the low, low price of $20,000. This is basically like cybersquatting on a domain name, only without the fun of the internet.

Of course, things work differently in the real world. Technically, the business names do expire, but if you've already been doing business under that name then no one can make you change it. A lawyer for the restaurant owners' association said the whole thing is bunk and added, "I'm a member of the bar, and it's embarrassing for someone in our profession to do something like that." In other words, "Nice try, nut job."

Ms. Brees plan for financial glory has worked almost as well as her campaign strategy of improperly using her estranged son's face to try and get elected to the Texas Court of Appeals. It's true the rural Texan voters love anything associated with quarterbacks from New Orleans, but perhaps she should give her schemes a little more thought.

Brees leaves Saints camp

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was excused from training camp Saturday for an undisclosed family matter.

A medical examiner said Monday that Mina Brees, Drew Brees' mother, died Friday in western Colorado, but the cause of death is still under investigation.

Grand County chief deputy coroner Cindy Eller said Mina Brees died there, but Eller declined to identify the town or release any other information.

Grand County is in the mountains about 50 miles northwest of Denver and includes the western part of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Winter Park ski resort.

Drew Brees was back practicing with the Saints on Monday in Metairie, La. Team officials said Monday they would have no comment.

Didnt that happen to Warren Sapp where some kid bought his domain name and then Sapp was trying to get it but the kid either didnt cough it up or tried to get Sapp to pay for it?

10-15 years ago, people got rich doing that. The law firm I worked at had alotta Internet clients back in the early 1990s, and I recall the URL www.loans.com sold for over a million dollars. That's not squatting exactly, but that's a lotta money for a $35 investment (cost of a URL back then). You could always squat on abbreviations, like www.hp.com etc ... a ton of those sold big, too.

Another great get-rich-quick-legally scheme was to register yourself as a long distance carrier company (access is pretty easy, the feds license the lines very liberally). Back when they had payphones especially, people would call a long-distance number, and the operator would ask, "which long distance carrier would you like?" Sone very smart guys registered carrier names, "whichever is cheapest," "I don't care," "Doesn't matter."

Again, people literally got rich with that.
