Was Bob Kraft Drunk Thursday Night?
For as long as I can remember, listening to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft speak has baffled me. He’s never been much of a talker and my mother (die hard Patriots fan) always insists that he’s hammered when they show him in the owner’s box or interview him on the sidelines. My response has always been something along the lines of, “Come on, Ma, he’s one of the most powerful people in the NFL — get real.” I’m not saying he was or was not drunk Thursday night during the Patriots preseason game with the Saints because I have no idea, but I can certainly say his speech at halftime had me squirming in my seat.
The Patriots welcomed former running back Sam Cunningham into their Hall of Fame and Kraft was the guy who introduced him. Let’s just say Cunningham probably wishes somebody else was given the honor. Check out the video of Robert Kraft slurring his words when introducing Sam Cunningham as a member of the Patriots Hall of Fame:
Yowza. Congratulations on being the newest inducted “mammer” of the Pats Hall of Fame, Sam. If not for your contributions, there’s no way New England would have managed to rush for 365 yards over the course of the season in 1978. Amazing feat, isn’t it? I can only pray Kraft is a bit more articulate in trying to convince Tom Brady to remain a Patriot for life.
