Ok, when the Patriots messed with the Rams and other NFL teams by videotaping their practices, that was one thing.
Now, our friends to the North are in a cold war with Russia.
On Sunday, a spokesperson for Russian president Vladimir Putin said it was “weird” that Pats president Robert Kraft is saying once again he stole his Super Bowl ring.
In 2005 the Pats visited Russia and according to Putin, Kraft gave him his Super Bowl ring. But in 2007, Kraft’s late wife, Myra, said it wasn’t a gift and just last week Kraft himself basically accused Putin of ripping him off.
