Daniel Radcliffe made a move even bolder than dueling Lord Voldemort by talking about football and politics in one sentence. And round up the usual suspects: owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady and the rest of the team captains.
An estimated crowd of 35,000 turned out at Gillette Stadium for the New England Patriots' Super Bowl rally Sunday morning, giving the team an emotional lift before boarding its flight to Atlanta.
The actor said Brady, 41, shouldn't retire, but should "stop winning things". I feel like that was the moment where, as a country, we were all like 'Oh come on dude!
"We love you! I appreciate the support". And take that MAGA hat out your locker.
Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Brady revealed Donald Trump had sent him the hat. Asked who he's rooting for in the February 3 showdown between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Ram, he responded with a succinct, matter-of-fact answer: "Rams".
However, Tom and Donald disagree on one thing for certain: kneeling during the "Star Spangled Banner" while at National Football League games. Center David Andrews, who grew up near Atlanta, went to Georgia and wore a Braves cap to the rally, told the crowd, "Can't wait to see y'all there (and) show them what a real fan base is". "It's just a friendship", Brady said in an interview with Fox News back in 2017.
Trump has referred to the quiet protests against police brutality against people of color unpatriotic.
