The great UGGs mystery

Ugh, those UGGS: Limit the wearing of these

FOXBORO – UGGs boxes lay littered in the Patriots locker room, a seemingly nice gesture by their quarterback.

Or was it?

Everyone – including some players – assumed Tom Brady, the male spokesman behind the cozy sheepskin boots had purchased pairs of the dark brown UGG Stoneman boots for each player.

"That's Tom, man," wide receiver Deion Branch said when asked if Brady was behind the Uggs. "He's a giving guy. Even though the lineman give him a task, but he does a great job of looking out for his guys."

But then word traveled over Twitter that those same UGGs had been waiting for the Giants players inside their locker room in East Rutherford.

Turns out, each box had a card inside that read: “Congratulations for making it to Super Bowl XLVI, the UGGs team.”

Wonder if Brady considers that a slap in the face.....
