According to Politico, Scalise gave his whip campaign team bats on Wednesday that said "Bring the Wood" as motivation to push for the win.On the other hand, Saints fans will also remember the 2013 season where the team was powered to a road playoff win in Philadelphia by Popeyes Chicken. Scalise has a different kind of chicken for lunch.
Though the Beltway hot sheet didn't reference it, Scalise was clearly channeling Coach Sean Payton, who handed out similar bats to the Saints in 2010 before a playoff showdown with the Arizona Cardinals.
