Bob Kraft had himself a doozy of a night. First off, the 73-year-old Patriots’ owner came out guns a-blazing, not-so-subtly fashioning two of his Super Bowl rings into cufflinks.

Savvy move with the binoculars, as well. Pretending they served a purpose during the game and weren’t entirely to get a better glimpse of Katy Perry’s beach balls is the kind of sharp, calculating play that has helped New England sustain the level of success that it has over the last fifteen or so years.
Then, after his team brought home a fourth championship under his ownership, Bobby slipped on the most obnoxious pair of Air Force 1s you’ll ever lay your eyes on.

You can have nothing but respect for this man. Rocking these kicks, while accepting the Lombardi trophy, was essentially Kraft giving two giant proverbial middle fingers to all of the cynics, skeptics, and mob leaders of DeflateGate.
Kraft then took the celebration to the club, where he got turnt the fuck up with none other than Ricky Rozay.
Shut it down. Bob Kraft just ran away as the greatest owner in professional sports. Steve Ballmer can uncontrollably flap his arms to Fergie all he wants, but until he gets on stage and brings the house down strutting to “I’m a Boss,” don’t even mention him in the same breathe as Bobby K..
