New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is a fierce competitor and intimidating player on the field, but when he is off of the gridiron he appears to be a fun-loving guy with a great sense of humor. That was on display Friday morning when the media journeyed in to the Patriots locker room.
Spikes appeared to be rocking a Harvard Law shirt, but upon further inspection it was actually a novelty. Under the giant Harvard Law block letters were the words “just kidding.”
As soon as the media set their eyes on the shirt, Twitter blew up with photos.
Just look at the examples below:

Well played, Mr. Spikes.
That is one way to get in the good graces of the media and the clothing company will certainly appreciate the increase in their sales.
