As the New England Patriots continue to field linebackers from the Mesozoic Era, they are getting younger on one part of the field: the sidelines. That's because they've concentrated their rebuilding efforts on getting younger in the cheerleading squad, having brought on 18-year-old Rebecca Lucas, who is still a high school senior, at least for the next few days. The collective powers of the internet (Google image search, flicking the screen real hard) have yet to dig up a picture of her. Her hometown paper does a hard-hitting, favorite-color-identifying interview with the next bearer of Tom Brady's spawn.
What are the most unusual aspects of the job?
"When you're at promotional events and your family comes, you can't hug them. There is a good reason, because other people don't know they're your family and might expect the same treatment."
Yup. No double standards in Bill Belichick's camp. What's good for the family is good for the 53-man roster. Besides, the Patriots are your family now. Don't look for your birth parents. They've already been tossed in the Honorary Goodell-Kraft Cheating Evidence Incinerator.
UPDATE — One of our industrious readers, who wishes not to be IDed to avoid inevitable stalking charges, has turned up a photo of young Becca (she's the one on the right). And, uh, wow. None too shabby.
