The Patriots & NFL Lost my Wife Today

Over the last two years my wife has really fallen in love with the Patri­ots, she has con­sumed the game with a pas­sion that only matches her love of quilting.

Today despite my own mis­giv­ings I turned on the game for her (I’m pretty indif­fer­ent except for Brady) and while Tom Brady, Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick all stood there were a bunch of Patri­ots tak­ing a knee.

When she saw this some­thing hap­pened that I didn’t expect.

She told me to shut it off.

As she said: “they’re paid to throw and catch pigskin, protest on your own dime, your own dime and your own time…this girl is not going to fall all over any­body because they are babies, spoiled over­paid babies. Put on your big boy pants and grow up.” ”

She didn’t stop there “the Patri­ots are sup­posed to be a class act and that shows no class at all.”

she had plenty more to say but I can’t type that fast.

She also apol­o­gizes to Tom, Grok and every­one who stood and while she will always root for her boys but as of today as long as there is a Patriot kneel­ing for the anthem, the TV gets shut off or changed.

The peo­ple at work will be shocked when she doesn’t ask for the score of the game, but if they want to make a state­ment fine, this is hers.

I really didn’t think this would hap­pen and I sus­pect nei­ther did the NFL.

May they be happy with the path they have chosen.

Update: Appar­ently they lost a large chunk of the crowd at the game too:

Dur­ing the play­ing of “The Star-​Spangled Ban­ner” at Gillette Sta­dium, 17 Patri­ots play­ers decided to take a knee, includ­ing defen­sive starters Devin McCourty, Mal­colm But­ler, Duron Har­mon and Stephon Gilmore.

The fans didn’t like that

For­tu­nately for the NFL as MSNBC show you can still make a good liv­ing with a niche market.
