Boston, MA, United States (AHN) – New England is going to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis this Sunday where they will face the New York Giants in what is expected to be one of the most watched games in TV history, and one of the best displays of some football in some time.
In a congratulatory gesture, Patriots’s quarterback Tom Brady gave each player on the team a pair of Ugg boots.
This is the second time the generous Brady, who endorses the footwear, gave the boots to his fellow teammates.
Meanwhile, the cult-like, sheepskin, fur-lined and comfy boots have been given the boot at Pottsdown Middle School outside Philadelphia.
Principal Gail M. Cooper said the boots (and their less expensive imitators) have become the hiding place of choice for cellphones and other gadgets that are not supposed to be brought to class.
Some fashionistas consider Uggs just plain ugly; others can’t get enough of them, even wearing the warm footwear year-round.
While Brady and the Patriots will be sporting them as they head to the Super Bowl, some middle school kids will have to leave them at home.
