It started out to seem like a weird coincidence, Aaron Hernandez of New England’s’ Patriot fame was being questioned about a body found in a warehouse about a mile from his residence. The initial story was rather random, a question of a rented vehicle didn’t seem to be very relevant – rental cars go through lots of hands, some of them of shady people.
But the conversation didn’t stop.
It came to the attention of authorities that Hernandez had hired a team of house cleaners on Monday and what do you know, the surveillance system that police asked to take a look at, he destroyed it. Ooops!
So who is this dead man, and what tie did he have to Aaron Hernandez? Funny you should ask, it seems he has a bit more of a connection to Aaron Hernandez than just a rented vehicle that is somehow tied to his death – it appears that the deceased, Odin Lloyd, dated Hernadez’s girlfriend’s sister (draw that out on paper if you need to).

And that’s bad for the rest of us.
When we did our series of video NFL predictions last fall, I found myself telling my fellow Draft Day Suiters the same thing more than once when we discussed the Pats: “It’s what they do.” Come up with big stops against offenses that should be able to score on New England’s geriatric defense? It’s what they do. Put up 40 points on what we previously thought was a good defense? It’s what they do.
Get extra mileage out of players who don’t seem to fit anywhere else? It’s what they do.
Welcome to The Weekly Rewind, our attempt to look back at the week that was in the world of sports. Now with more snark and sass, and less Manti…. Read more…
