Earlier this morning I began receiving tweets that some stores have already begun selling 2014 AFC Champion t-shirts of the Patriots. (Some have reported the shirts being sold in New England, others have said New York.)
Regardless of where it is happening (possibly in both locations), it is happening.
The Patriots will play the Denver Broncos in the AFC's conference championship game tomorrow afternoon (1 p.m. MT on CBS). Though the Broncos are roughly 5.5-point favorites, at least one store appears to think New England will win the game.
If New England loses, it's hard to say if these will become collectors items or simply trash. Probably the latter. Make it happen, Denver.
