Some Patriots fans think they’ve figured out whose face is the team’s logo

Some fans suspect former Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is the face that appears on the New England Patriots’ logo.

John Kerry’s connection with New England just might be deeper than previously was known.

The former Massachusetts senator and previous Democratic presidential nominee was briefly a trending topic on Twitter on Wednesday night.

Depending on your perspective, the face on the logo for the New England Patriots may (or may not) resemble Kerry.

“Whom amongst us does not enjoy being logoed?” one Tweeter asked, apparently speaking in Olde English.

Kerry’s military service doesn’t go back quite that far, but he did serve in the Vietnam War and received several honors.

This user felt the logo resembled a different military man, yet still another recognizable figure: Tom Selleck.

Kerry was a senator in Massachusetts before challenging then-President George W. Bush in 2004. He served as secretary of State in the Obama Administration from 2013-17.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
