Angry Patriots Fan Throws “Patriots Gear-Burning Party” For Fellow Angry Patriots Fan (Videos)
A lot of New England Patriots fans were very unhappy with players’ decisions to kneel during the national anthem last week. In fact, one of them was so mad he threw a Patriots gear-burning party. And it turns out a lot of his fellow angry Patriots fans have plenty of extra time on their hands, because the gear-burning party was very well attended.
The man behind the gear-burning party was Mark Shane of Swansea, Massachusetts, which is about an hour south of Boston just outside Providence, RI. He was very happy with how his combustion shindig turned out.
“I think it was a great success,” Shane told Boston CBS affiliate WBZ. “I think people were united. I think people love our country. And I think it sends a great message to the NFL [that] any devisive type actions will not be tolerated during sports.”
Here’s the WBZ report:
Here’s another video taken by one of Shane’s supporters in which he and several other old white guys explain why they are so frustrated with the Patriots. Make sure to watch all the way to the end for a rousing rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and chants of “USA! USA!”:
These folks wanted to send a message to the NFL, and I think they accomplished that goal.
