It’s going to be a weird Sunday for woke fans of the New England Patriots, as the team heads into the Super Bowl led by at least three men—team owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, and the team’s immortal, golden-armed cannon man, Tom Brady—who’ve all endorsed or supported President Donald Trump.
Admittedly, most followers of the Patriots religion probably aren’t going to put politics ahead of their service to their chosen god. But for those feeling some twinges at cheering the team on tomorrow, Last Week Tonight writer Josh Gondelman and his friend Emma Sandoe have a possible solution: #AGoodGame, a campaign encouraging fans to donate to causes like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood every time the Patriots score.
The hashtag seems to be catching on via social media, with numerous fans pledging to donate to their favorite causes every time the Pats get a touchdown or knock in a field goal. (Admittedly, some of these are less “go team,” and more “putting a bounty out on Tom Brady’s head”, but hey, at least it’s for a good cause.)
