Julian Edelman and Malcolm Butler won the Lombardi Trophy last Sunday. This Sunday they gave away a Grammy.
The New England Patriots players presented the “Best Rock Album” category. Before actor Josh Duhamel could read the winner, Butler intercepted the envelope. Edelman offered the obligatory: “Once again another interception by Malcolm.”
Beck’s “Morning Phase” beat out albums by U2, Ryan Adams, The Black Keys, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to take the award.
The appearance marks the second week in a row that Edelman and Butler starred in the highest rated television program. We’re told Sam Smith, a more delicate player who understands football as another game entirely, eclipsed them in Los Angeles.
