Patriots have fun with Photoshop ahead of Winter Classic

Watch Bill Belichick find his sea legs as he skates around with Claude Julien ahead of the Winter Classic in Boston.

The New England Patriots are lending their home field to the NHL for the 2016 Winter Classic, and some members of the team have been having a little fun with it on social media.

After Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask revealed a tribute to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (and a few other Patriots players) on his mask ahead of the New Year’s Day event, Brady had a little photoshop fun with a tribute of his own.
