You should see this one coming.
New England scores major points for tapping into their local history. They’re named the Patriots, for crying out loud. They’re wearing red, white, and blue. They’re led by a coach who dresses like a slob in a sweatshirt on the sidelines, subtly emphasizing the northeastern lack of pretension involved in going about your job. They are the New England Patriots, and they are everything their uniforms seem to say about them.
But as much as I like the Patriots’ present uniforms, I will never, ever think it compares to their throwbacks:
Admittedly, if I had my way, they’d revert to the retro uniforms permanently, but since they’re not, we’ll have to settle for 8th-best.
