Robert Kraft and Jonathan Kraft’s New England Revolution team popularly referred to as The Revs scooped their major trophy during the 2007 US Open Cup. The year that followed, the Revs scooped the 2008 North American SuperLiga Cup.
On the downside; however, The Revs are yet to win an MLS Cup and an MLS Supporters’ Shield. Despite having featured in five different final matches in the MLS Cup and having the second greatest regular season record in 2005.

The New England Patriots have a lot to be proud about these days on the field and have a super bowl ring to show for it. One aspect of professional sports which gets overlooked is the role athletes have in the community.The Mayo Bowl has been a top-notch charity event for five years now and the 6th annual Mayo Bowl held on Monday was no different. Jerod Mayo hosted his teammates and families, guests, fans and sponsors alike to help raise over $400,000.00 for Boston Medical Center. The sold out fundraising event was held at Kings in Dedham, MA.
Players of past and present showed their support for the cause and came ready to bowl. Some of the current players there including Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, Brandon Lafell, Danny Amendola, Devin McCourty, Chandler Jones, Rob Ninkovich, Malcolm Butler, Dont’a Hightower, Nate Solder and Stephen Gostkowski (bowling champion of the night). Former players included Andre Tippett, Tedy Bruschi and Vince Wilfork (and wife) who couldn’t make the event but recorded a video that was played during the event wishing the Mayo family nothing but the best.
The event kicked off with Mayo, along with wife Chantel, made a short but heartfelt speech in which they thanked their sponsors, teammates, fans and most importantly, the Boston Medical Center.
After the speech by Mayo, the players had some fun bowling while the fans were free to enjoy an array of tasty hors d’oeuvres and Sam Adams. The live auction followed bowling, with Jerod at the helm, and handily assisting Mayo in the process were the likes of Devin McCourty and Chandler Jones. There were many items donated by players that attendees bid on, including a signed and framed Tom Brady Jersey.
Blue Sky Sports & Entertainment did a fantastic job putting this charity event together thanks to them for having us again!). I’d also like to recognize the event sponsors Bob’s Discount Furniture and Citizen’s Bank. Most importantly, big shoutout to the Mayo family for once again playing host to one of the top player charity events in greater Boston. It is truly a great event for a great cause!
Buffalo Bills fans must be crying in the shower still after the Patriots lit them up like the Fourth of July. Tom Brady (or the lady as Bills fans called him) threw for 466 yards and 3 TDS as the Pats rammed a 40 burger down the Bills throats.
I have never heard a fan base that has won absolutely NOTHING EVER, talk more sh*t. Here is some footage of Buffalo Bills fans delusions of grandeur….
It is no surprise that Buffalo Bills fans don’t like Patriots quarterback Tom Brady all that much. I mean when a guy DOMINATES you 23 out of 26 times, you tend to have reoccurring nightmares of TB12 lighting up your defense like the Fourth of July.
So how would a Buffalo Bills fan show his general disdain for the Greatest Of All-Time?
Sorry to break it to you dude, there is 0.0% chance that Tom Brady would get his hogan within a 100 mile radius of a pathetic Bills fan like you.
Great ones do not come in contact with habitual losers especially morons that drop a couple hundred dollars on an idiotic jersey.
