Massachusetts church sign amuses Patriots fans
A sign outside Crossroads Community Church in Carver is amusing New England Patriots fans around the country.
Pastor Barry Hanson said the board is usually filled with event notices or inspirations messages.
But the latest words are more of a prediction.
The message reads, "The Bible mentions Eagles 33 times and the Goat 42 times. Patriots win by nine."
Hanson said he saw a post that said the word "Patriots" is not mentioned in the Bible, meaning the Patriots would lose 33 to 0. He wanted a more positive message on the board, and knew "goat" was mentioned often.
"It's gone viral on Twitter and Facebook," he said. "It's unbelievable."
Hanson said he is a die-hard Brady fan.
"This what I love about the goat: all the accolades he's received and he's stayed so humble. I love Brady," he said.
Hanson also said he is glad the Patriots are not playing the Saints, as the sign would not have worked out.
