The Patriots defeated the Falcons 34-28 in Super Bowl LI, rallying from a 28-3 deficit to emerge victorious in overtime. To celebrate the comeback victory, the Patriots were gifted rings encrusted with 283 diamonds, a play on the 28-3 deficit.
Although the Patriots were delighted, Blank was predictably unenthused.
“I said to Robert, ‘You didn’t have to do the 28-3 in the ring,'” Blank told The New York Times. “It kind of pissed me off.”
Falcons owner is a great guy but this is hilarious. I still can’t help but laugh at his reaction on the Falcons sidelines when the Patriots came back to win in overtime.
