New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, in an appearance on Fox News, claimed that he believes his team will be playing football as scheduled during the 2020 season despite the coronavirus pandemic.
There are dozens of ways that the Baltimore Sun could have covered this story, and they chose to go for the most hilarious angle possible, as the headline they crafted in response to the story pokes fun at Kraft’s sexual misadventures at a Florida spa in 2019.

Bless the copy editor that approved this headline.
Kraft’s escapades at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Florida right before the Patriots took on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game brought with it some solicitation charges and a permanent stain on his legacy.
If anything positive came out of that mess, it was the hundreds of slam dunk jokes that could be made at Kraft’s expense for years to come.
Hope he bought it dinner first https://t.co/9HZ3qyJfIt

Six Super Bowls and turning around a moribund franchise are all parts of Kraft’s legacy, but this unfortunate chapter in his tenure as Patriots owner is not going away anytime soon.
