Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick asked the Texas Rangers and Houston Police Department to team up in finding New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady’s football jersey which was stolen Sunday night after the Super Bowl, according to an emailed news release.

“In Texas we place a very high value on hospitality and football,” Patrick wrote. “Tom Brady’s jersey has great historical value and is already being called ‘the most valuable NFL collectable ever.’ It will likely go into the Hall of Fame one day. It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas.”

According to the news release, Brady’s jersey was stolen from the Patriots’ locker room at NRG Stadium in Houston. The Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, 34-28.

“I’m a Texans and Cowboys fan first, but the unquestionable success of the Super Bowl in Houston last night was a big win for our entire state, and I don’t want anything to mar that victory,” Patrick said. “Whoever took this jersey should turn it in. The Texas Rangers are on the trail.”

The Houston Police Department directed all inquiries to NFL security.

  1. Dan Patrick’s “bathroom bill” is an example of heinous legislating in high gear. He has made it clear that he has no understanding of what transgender people are and has couched his “argument” as “Keep men out of women’s bathrooms.” There have been absolutely no instances of transgender people perpetrating any crime in public bathrooms. Dan is trying to create and “fix” a “problem” that doesn’t exist.
    Dan had said the doesn’t think he knows any transgender people and has refused invitations to meet transgender people. He thinks his bill will keep a man who wants to commit sexual assault from putting on a dress and going into a women’s bathroom to commit that assault. Right, Dan, that happens so often. That has NEVER happened. He is pandering to keep support from his religious right backers. If you side with Dan on this one, may I suggest you google “transgender men” and look at the images of hairy, muscled, bearded guys (yes, these trans men are guys). These are the guys that Dan’s bathroom bill will FORCE to use the women’s room — the same women’s room that Dan’s wife and other female relatives use. Those trans guys do not want to use the women’s room and the women in those women’s room don’t want them there either. But Dan Patrick wants to force those guys to use the women’s room! A counterpart situation exists for trans women affected by Dan’s fear- and hate-fueled legislation.

  2. Dan’s offer to find a used football jersey certainly tells us what his priorities are. Dan, the state of Texas has some pretty pithy problems. Finding that jersey is not one of them. Please focus your addled attention on issues of substance.
