Well, Aaron Hernandez is somehow still relevant in the world of news. In the past few days, TMZ has obtained a handwritten letter from the former University of Florida Gator and New England Patriot. I won't try and paraphrase what he said, mainly because I'm not 100% sure what he is saying.
Here is the letter, take a look for yourself:
Simply put, Aaron Hernandez TERRIFIES me. I don't get how this dude completely went off the rocker. He was obviously mixed up with the wrong crowd and could just never get away from the drugs and violence that came along with having a shady past, but damn. You don't go from doing smoking pot to killing people because they bumped into you at a club, right?
I'm not going to go through the entire letter piece-by-piece, but he does mention some Patriots related things that I want to talk about.
First things first, he talks about how he still watches the Patriots and roots for his old teammates:
“...I actually could watch TV and the games; I have a TV in my cell! And yes I still root for my squad and still love all the ones I loved. The closest I was with was probably Brady whom I love to death and always will and only hope the best for them. But was cool with Julez, Branch and ‘the BEST TE ever to walk on a football field’ Gronk!”
I've never been to prison, but who the hell do you have to kill to manage to get a TV in your cell? Is that even a thing? I thought the point of prison was to make it as unenjoyable as possible. If you are just kicking it back and watching the Patriots every Sunday, wouldn't more people just go to jail to escape from their crazy wife?
Anyways, I like the fact that he doesn't hold any animosity towards his teammates. I mean, obviously they had nothing to do with him being arrested and what not. He recognizes both our GOATs, and leaves it at that. So far, 10/10.
However, things start to go downhill for him when he talks about Patriots owner Robert Kraft:
“...fake ass non loyal Kraft who told me he loved me every time he seen me but obviously shows his word ain’t shit...”
Welp. I know money goes a long way in this country, but what exactly was Hernandez expecting?
Hernandez: Yeah, Mr. Kraft, I just killed 3 people, but we are cool, right?
Kraft: Yeah, man. I know a guy.
I will leave you with this closing thought, though: would you rather have Aaron Hernandez, the three-time murdering Bloods member, or Scott "Stone Hands" Chandler as your #2 tight end?
