Guess the mentality of Spygate and Deflategate is a cancer running through the team.
(Update, Feb. 9: Oooppssss? It appears maybe the jersey wasn't stolen after all, possibly just misplaced. And, is Tom Terrific taking a page from his BFF Donald Trump about the ebil media?
“I went in to take my eye black off and they had opened up [the locker room] to, I don’t know, the media,” he said Monday on WEEI. “And I walked back to my bag and it was gone. Same thing happened two years ago [in the Super Bowl against Seattle]. That sucks, but, oh well.”
Well, there you go. The haters in the non-New England media did it.)
Now, why can't even the Texas Rangers find it? Maybe a transgender person took it into the bathroom not of his or her alleged "biological" sex, so the Rangers, following on Lite Guv Danny Goeb, are befuddled.
That said, that baby's impossible to resell now except on the totally black market now. Maybe the thief just wanted a souvenir, but if he or she wanted money, not at all likely now.
Of course, there is one other option, as NFL staff were in that locker room too.
Roger Goodell did it, as a last pound of flesh!
Other possible thieves?
Tony Dungy for being accused of cheating by Deion Sanders.
Deion, to set up the story.
Bob Kraft, to make Goodell look bad.
Bill Belichick, to set up a rallying cry for next year.
Dan Patrick (the Lite Guv known as Danny Goeb, not the sports guy), to promote the bathroom bill.
Meanwhile, as of Feb. 13, it appears that the game ball from James White's winning touchdown was never lost in the first place.
