James Comey was in the middle of what may have been the most important Congressional hearing of his life on Monday, but that didn’t stop him from getting in a very public dig at an NFL team he dislikes. The FBI Director let go with his hatred of the New England Patriots on national television while attempting to explain why the Russians wanted Hillary Clinton to lose the presidential election.
That’s some bold fandom.

Football fan first, FBI Director second. That is some true, deep animosity from an avowed New York Giants fan. Taking a shot at the Patriots in the middle of a hearing concerning Russia’s attempts to subvert our very democracy. Damn man, that’s dedication.
Comey, a native of Yonkers, didn’t let the committee know his feelings on the Boston Red Sox but I’m fairly sure we already know where he stands.
