New England doesn't seem to be taking the departure of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, both of whom are now Tampa Bay Buccaneers, very rationally, as they are looking for any possible way to get in one more dig at the future Hall of Famers.
Even Smug Brewing in Pawtucket got in on the fun, as they announced the creation of "Traitorade", a Key Lime sour that pokes fun at Brady and Gronkowski, even going so far as to parody the Buccanneers' old creamsicle swashbuckler logo.
Unlike some Patriot fans, the folks over at Smug claim this is totally tongue-in-cheek, claiming that it's just a joke and they have a lot of love for both their former quarterback and tight end.
Gronkowski returned to the NFL after a one-year hiatus, and requested a trade to Tampa Bay in order to be reunited with Brady. In one offseason, the Buccaneers went from a rudderless organization to one of the main contenders in the NFC.
Seeing Brady line up in an orange non-contact jersey with the skull on the side of the helmet is still a bit of an odd sight, especially for those up in New England. At least they have a tasty new sour to drown their sorrows with.
