Patriots 18-1…Not so fast

There are 290 kids in Nicaragua that think the New England Patriots went 19-0.

The NFL donated 290 Patriots hats and an equal number of team jerseys showing  the slogans “Super Bowl Champions, 19-0” to impoverished children from two small communities in southern Nicaragua.

The donation from the league made youngsters in the communities of San Gregorio and Buena Vista very happy, said Miriam Diaz, spokeswoman for the humanitarian organization World Vision, which arranged the donation with the NFL. Diaz went on to add “The Patriots lost, but the children won”.

The game of football in that region is better known to those children as our game of soccer. Diaz added that the kids seemed excited about the American version of the game once the rules were explained to them.

“They were very happy to receive the hats and jerseys,” Diaz said. “They said they did not expect such a surprise.”

Neither did Patriots Nation.
