Dalai Lama, Pats Fan?

The Dalai Lama spoke at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.
And on the same day that a storm knocked down the Cowboys’ indoor practice facility, prompting fears by Dallas fans that the event is a harbinger of doom, some Patriots fans think that the Dalai Lama’s decision to don a Pats hat is a sign that the franchise’s four-year championship drought might be coming to an end.
We think it’s just stuff that happens, and that the ultimate outcome of the 2009 season will be driven by neither event.  But we also realize that in this annual post-draft period of zero wins and zero losses, NFL fans are constantly looking for things that could undermine their optimism — or confirm it.

  1. So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I’m a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald… striking. So, I’m on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one — big hitter, the Lama — long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga…gunga — gunga galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he’s gonna stiff me. And I say, “Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.” And he says, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.” So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.

  2. Blah, blah, blah. And in a side note, the Patriots announce that Barney Fife is the new head of security.

  3. That may be a Pats hat… But that’s definitely a Redskins robe. Bowl.

  4. You mean you’re not going to question the religious faith of a man (closer to the point, a politician that derives whatever political power he has left from divine sources) who gave a sermon about “The Four Noble Truths” in the temple that houses perhaps the most notorious gang of cheaters in NFL history, Florio?
    On second thought, maybe Gillette is exactly the place that most needed that kind of sermon.

  5. I hear that Bill Belichick wants the makeshift altar to remain intact so he can coach there on game day.

  6. Terrible joke. And makes it even worse was that it was sooooo long and not funny at all. And then you posted it twice…

  7. So I guess on second thought, Kraft doesn’t want the Pats to play in the first NFL game in China.

  8. I take back what I said about florio and brianforster sharing the same pipe. After nodding off while reading this drivel, I woke up convinced florio and forster are the same person.

  9. Belichick could have the Dalai Lama, the Pope and hundred rabbis on his side, and he’d still cheat, just to be safe.

  10. “Bad joke and you posted it twice. A rare double fail.”
    Actually its a Caddyshack reference.

  11. No other team in the world of football has ever cheated? Please, yes they cheated and yes they got caught but they are not the only team to have ever cheated in the world of pro football.

  12. Dalai Lama at Gillette…..
    Natural disaster hits Cowboys practice dome…..
    ……..just sayin…………

  13. “some Patriots fans think that the Dalai Lama’s decision to don a Pats hat is a sign that the franchise’s four-year championship drought might be coming to an end.”
    Yeah…how did his support of Tibet work out for them?

  14. contrivance:
    Not only are you oblivious to a Caddyshack reference, but you can’t count to two.
    Double fail.

  15. @contrivance:
    You are oblivious to Chaddyshack references, and you can’t count to two.
    Double fail.

  16. It was probably one of those “19-0” hats that they shipped to the 3rd world after the Super Bowl loss.
