Aaron Hernandez springs up on New England Patriots team calendar (photo)

That’s a shame. Much like what occurred when his image appeared in the packs of tickets sent out to New England Patriots season ticket holders, former tight end Aaron Hernandez unfortunately has sprung up again, this time as the featured image for the month of August on the team’s calendar.

Obviously, nothing could have been done to avoid this — and it is reasonable to assume Hernandez won’t be featured in the 2014 edition — but as Patriots fans who own these calendars turned the page from July to August, they were reminded once again of someone they’d prefer to just soon as forget about entirely.

And well-crafted joke by this gent on Twitter. For obvious reasons.
