If Anyone Deserves A Sideline Pass, It’s Dane Cook

The BOSTON HERALD reminds us why we absolutely adore Dane “I’m getting fat so I’ll grow a beard” Cook. He was somehow allowed on the field before the Pats-Bolts game:

Dane Cook, wearing a beard and a snorkel jacket for the 9-degree wind chill, flew in for the championship tilt. He was on the field with Bob, Myra and Jonathan Kraft before the game, taking pictures of himself with his cell phone and posing with state Treasurer Tim Cahill.

Note: Cook, according to Nick Hardwick, was (sadly) the only person on the field not cheap-shotted by Richard Seymour yesterday.
