The Patriots Take London by Storm

The New England Patriots are in London preparing for their eventual dismantling of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. While the team has a strictly-business approach, team owner Bob Kraft, the cheerleaders and the mascot are gallivanting around town doing sight-seeing and promotional work for the game and the league. The Patriots Twitter feed released some photos of the team at practice at the Brit Oval Cricket Grounds, a bizarre photo of Junior Seau on the plane and even a great shot of Kraft and Commissioner Goodell in the British Cabinet room where clearly Kraft is sizing up his chair as Chancellor of the Exchequer. My personal favorite though is this shot of the mascot and some cheerleaders taking in the view from atop the London Eye.

Seau Takes a Sack

seaufanDuring the fourth quarter of yesterday’s dismantling of the Arizona Cardinals, Junior Seau received a very unexpected hit. A male fan, presumably inebriated, jumped out of the stands and tackled Seau, bringing him to the ground. This took Seau completely unawares. “It was definitely a shock,” he said. “It was probably one of my most memorable moments in my 19-year career. I thought [at first] it was one of my [teammates] that was enjoying the win. As I was laying on the ground I saw this guy in street clothes. Obviously, it was not one of the players or any of the employees of the Patriots. Therefore, security came over and took care of him. I wish him a Merry Christmas.”

Not enough people jump on the field for football games, I think it has something to do with incredibly large men in full pads who won’t think twice about pummeling you. Baseball streakers are likely to get tackled by security but rarely do the players get involved, they’re too scared of damaging their precious money-makers, but football players, they’ll knock you the fuck out.
