Julian Edelman has been a staunch supporter of Boston’s other core teams throughout his New England Patriots tenure.
As such, it shouldn’t come as much of surprise Edelman made a point to shout out the Bruins and Celtics on Sunday afternoon.
Edelman sported a custom B’s sweater during his media availability following the Patriots’ latest training camp practice. The salute came hours before puck drop for the second-round series opener between the Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning.
“The B’s gave it to me, so I just want to say go B’s, man, and go Celts,” Edelman said. “We got a lot of positive vibes in the world from Boston going right now. So, let’s go.”
The Celtics took care of business Sunday, finishing off a four-game sweep of the Philadelphia 76ers and advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals. Boston fans surely are hoping the Black and Gold will follow suit against the Bolts.
