Drew Brees Shows Off His Microsoft 'Kinect Sports' Skills On Capitol Hill

New Orleans Saints Star Drew Brees -- who is also the co-chair of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN) -- took some time to show off his quarterbacking skills via Microsoft's "Kinect Sports: Season Two" this week (See pic, above.)

But, wait! Where was his the game controller?

For those of you that have been living under a rock for the last few years (or just don't care about video games), Drew's body was the controller.

Drew -- who is in our Nation's Capital this week -- showcased one of the many gaming titles and platforms that allow users to use their bodies as the control interface with innovative motion-sensing technology. These games have become all the rage for kids and adults, and they were the focus of an event held last night, at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. 

The event, which was hosted by PCFSN and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), was part of the launch of the "Active Play Presidential Lifestyle Award" (PALA+) Challenge, which highlights active video games as one way to help Americans lead more active lives.

The event was also attended by Kathleen Sebelius (Secretary of Health and Human Services), Mike Gallagher (CEO, ESA), Cornell McClellan (First Family Personal Trainer), Billie Jean King (Presidential Medal of Freedom Awardee), and Olympic Gold Medalists Allyson Felix and Michelle Kwan.
