As much of the East Coast digs out from the latest dose of winter weather, former Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton has poked a little fun at one of his misadventures from snow days gone by.

Via Twitter, Guyton has posted a photo of a car buried in the snow, with this explanation:  “I can laugh now at this.  But this was me when I was LATE FOR PRACTICE in New England.  Still got sent home.”

He’s referring to a December 2009 incident, which resulted in coach Bill Belichick sending Guyton, Randy Moss, Derrick Burgess, and Adalius Thomas home after they showed up late on a snowy New England morning.

Plenty of employers apply a no-excuses attitude, even on days when it’s impossible to know exactly how bad the roads are until actually driving on them.

So if you’ve got to be at work today and you live within the oversized snow belt, leave early and drive safely.  You can resume reading PFT when you get there, since the PFT writers all work from home.
