From our never-ending Local Dailies DisADvantage desk
In the wake of the New England Patriots’ victory in Stupor Bowl LIII, yesterday’s editions of the Boston dailies marked Celebration Day for the six-time champions.
Begin with the Boston Globe, where the Kraft Family bought page 3 of the Score section.
From there the congradulations took an oddly retail turn, starting with this sort of oblique Hood full page.
Next up was this 7-Eleven full page ad offering some Hangover Relief Specials.
And then the back page of Score, brought to you by Pepsi, the Official Soft Drink of the New England Patriots and Super Bowl LIII.
Yes, that is the Chris Hogan of six targets, zero receptions, and zero yardage in the Big Game. But why get technical about it.
Finally, the A section of the Globe featured this full-page shoutout from Bank of America.
Of all the ads above, only that last one ran in the Boston Herald.
Today it’s a different story – it’s Tchotchke Day in the local dailies! Here’s a sample of the Patsabilia you can find in today’s Globe.
And here’s what the Herald is offering.
Not for nothing, but the hardreading staff gravitates toward the Levitating Football.
One final, poignant note: The thirsty local tabloid, after being passed over by so many advertisers yesterday, was finally reduced to running a congratulatory ad from . . . “the entire staff at the Boston Herald.”
That’s just, well, sad.
