Massachusetts governor does Ice Bucket Challenge in 'Free Brady' tee

Monday August 10th, 2015

Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker is a man of many memes. 

Baker performed the Ice Bucket Challenge on Monday with challenge founder Pete Frates, which begs the question, the Ice Bucket Challenge is coming back this summer?

But Baker showed he could be a little #hip as well, sporting a "Free Brady" shirt in reference to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension. 

A cynic would note that Baker's shirt is clearly a political ploy for votes. We choose to believe he's just being truly supportive, like all other Patriots fans.
