On Sunday, a Jets fan in attendance at the Jets-Patriots game was spotted with a T-shirt reading “I STAND FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM”. The shirt has several flaws in theory, regardless, it’s his right to declare his patriotism in a way which doesn’t harm anyone.
This however doesn’t account for the stupidity of simultaneously making a social statement while using the flag as a rag to sit on. Deadspin gives us the word from the fan who snagged the photo.
Basically, me and my friend were walking around the stadium sometime during the 3rd quarter. There is a huge tv screen by the food carts right inside the stadium where people gather to watch. We went over there to check it out and we saw him spread the flag out and sit down.
I thought it was too ironic so I snagged a picture. He sat on it for a few minutes before leaving.
A True Patriot.
