The May 2015 Loot Crate is terrible


I received my May 2015 Loot Crate box yesterday and I can't believe how terribly underwhelming it was. Of all the Loot Crate boxes I've received, this one has got to be the most disappointing.

Now they need to do that same thing with billboards up and down the Massachusetts Turnpike. The problem with that is most Pats fans cannot … [Read more...]

The NFL suspended New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for the first four games of the 2015 regular season for his involvement in Deflategate.

The two equipment staffers who did the actual deflating of the footballs, at Brady's behest, were both suspended indefinitely without pay. Of all the punishments doled out, theirs were … [Read more...]
