The Sad Aftereffect Of The Chinese NFL Cancellation

As we mentioned yesterday, the schedule NFL game between the Patriots and Seahawks in China has been canceled. That's good news for each team's players and coaches, whom we suspect had little desire to break from training camp and head to freaking China.

But it's bad news for the Patriots' Pro Shop, which has been trying to hawk Chinese Patriots memorabilia for a few months now. Of all the products available — hats, shirts, stickers, Jabar Gaffney Reche Caldwell fake eyeballs — our favorite is this special Chinese Patriots cheerleader calendar, which proves that, if nothing else, football is not the only contact sport that can travel internationally with little trouble in translation.
