Dalai Lama, Pats Fan?

The Dalai Lama spoke at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.
And on the same day that a storm knocked down the Cowboys’ indoor practice facility, prompting fears by Dallas fans that the event is a harbinger of doom, some Patriots fans think that the Dalai Lama’s decision to don a Pats hat is a sign that the franchise’s four-year championship drought might be coming to an end.
We think it’s just stuff that happens, and that the ultimate outcome of the 2009 season will be driven by neither event. But we also realize that in this annual post-draft period of zero wins and zero losses, NFL fans are constantly looking for things that could undermine their optimism — or confirm it.
