Patriots run a clean operation

Watch that video at your own risk. There’s some pretty nasty stuff in there …

But lucky for you guys, you don’t have to deal with much of it all. The above Outside the Lines report from ESPN details the problems that have arisen in stadiums with food service recently, with one finger pointed at food service giant Aramark.

Gillette Stadium — with the Patriots running own food service in-house and declining to out-source it like most teams do — was the only NFL venue without a “major or critical violation”. And it was just one of nine in all of sports, joining the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre in Toronto, Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, the United Center, U.S. Cellular Field and Wrigley Field in Chicago, the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, and Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.
