Well, one New England man discovered a surefire way to get out of jury duty.
Jury selection is underway in Bristol County (Mass.) Superior Court in the murder trial of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Although we don’t yet know who will be sitting in on the case, we definitely know one person who won’t be.
According to Kathryn Sotnik of NECN, one man showed up in his finest Boston sports gear and took his fandom one step farther by yelling for his beloved football team.

Kind of funny.
Superior Court Judge E. Susan Garsh barred Patriots gear — and apparently all sports gear — from the courthouse during Hernandez’s trial. It sounds like screaming “Go Pats!” won’t be tolerated either.
