There's a chance Robert Kraft may have his charges of soliciting prostitution dropped. But the court of public opinion won't let him off so easily.
The New England Patriots owner showed his face Monday night at TD Garden to cheer on the Boston Bruins in their Game 1 win over the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup Final.
As Kraft received a warm ovation from the Boston crowd, Chris Kerber, the Blues' play-by-play announcer for St. Louis' KMOX radio station, threw in this nice little quip (via ESPN's Keith Olbermann):
"They just showed Patriots owner Robert Kraft (on) the video board . . . I guess there are some videos he doesn't mind being a part of."
We see what he did there.
The context for that joke: There's allegedly video evidence of Kraft exchanging cash for sexual favors at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla., that his legal team is working aggressively to ensure never sees the light of day.
So far, Kraft's lawyers have succeeded, as a judge recently granted the Patriots owner's motion to suppress video evidence on the grounds it was obtained illegally.
Prosecutors will appeal that ruling this fall, but in the meantime, Kraft seems perfectly fine being a man about town, even if he takes some snark in the process.
