Is the Dalai Lama a Patriots fan?
The spiritual leader put on a Patriots hat that was a gift from team owner Robert Kraft before speaking to a crowd of 15,935 at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, according to the Boston Globe.
Here’s the Globe’s account from the scene in Foxboro, Mass.:
- Waving cheerfully, the Dalai Lama mounted a stage and settled into an armchair facing a troupe of young dancers. With a flourish, he produced something cherry red — a Patriots hat, projected onto the end-zone video scoreboards — and waved it in the air. Thousands cheered as he tugged the cap onto his famously shaved head.
