One man is getting rewarded for his patience after a recent New England Patriots game because patience is a virtue.
Robert Kraft, the owner of the Patriots, issued an invitation to Jerry Edmond, a supporter who had been subjected to verbal abuse following Sunday’s dramatic loss to the Raiders in Las Vegas.
In a now-viral video, a Raiders supporter wearing a jersey for Derek Carr scolded the composed Edmond before another fan hugged her during the heated altercation.
Someone find me this man. I owe him a beer. Entire game this lady was chirping at him for CHEERING for the Patriots in “her” stadium. Absolute shit ending for NE & she’s up in his face. He stayed calm after seeing the worst loss ever. I know I wouldn’t. He deserves some love. pic.twitter.com/gaKuSv3YqO

Edmond was given a ticket, a customised jersey, and before access to the Patriots’ game versus the Bengals on December 24 by Kraft personally.
Edmond, who was watching his first NFL game, gave an explanation for why he remained motionless throughout the encounter.
“I didn’t want to ruin my experience by retaliating towards that women so I kept my cool,” Edmond said.
