Thousands and thousands of unsold caps and T-shirts printed with ’19-0′ and ‘Patriots Super Bowl Champions’ have been donated to a charity that will ship them next week to the impoverished Central American country. As soon as the gear arrives, poor children across Nicaragua will be transformed into unwitting members of Patriots Nation.”

When I lived in Nicaragua, it was always amusing seeing the out-of-place T-shirts, including tens of thousands of Branson, Missouri T’s and the odd “I had a blast at Beth’s Bat Mitzvah.”
