"Yeah, start drinking early. [...] Get nice and rowdy. 4:15 game, lot of time to get lubed up. Come out here, and cheer for the home team."

by Rachel Maddow

When asked at a Wednesday press conference about the notoriously quiet crowd at Gillette Stadium, Tom Brady(notes) issued a tongue-in-cheek message to fans who will be in attendance at this weekend's home opener:

"Yeah, start drinking early. [...] Get nice and rowdy. 4:15 game, lot of time to get lubed up. Come out here, and cheer for the home team."

In other words, Brady was telling thousands of people to do exactly what they've been planning on doing for months: go to the Patriots home opener, drink some alcoholic beverages in the parking lot and then go inside to cheer the team. This was an apparent no-no, as the Patriots later issued a statement censoring clarifying Brady's comments. "He meant 'stay hydrated, drink a lot of water,'" the team said unconvincingly.

Good work, Patriots PR flacks.
