Jermaine Cunningham’s PED suspension comes at the worst possible time for skiers and riders.
Waterville Valley is once again offering its Patriots Tuesday lift ticket special for the remainder of the regular season, as well as the playoffs, where skiers and riders can buy a lift ticket for the price equal the amount of points the Patriots allow the previous Sunday. After last Thursday’s 49-19 win over the Jets, for instance, Waterville sold lift tickets for $19 last Tuesday.
New England’s schedule is a mix the rest of the way, with a game this week against the Dolphins, followed by back-to-back challenges against the Texans and 49ers. Unfortunately, the deal isn’t valid during holiday week, so the last two games of the season, against doormats Miami and Jacksonville, won’t be applicable.
The $19 it cost to ski last Tuesday is the second-lowest price Patriots fans could have expected to pay all season, unless Waterville was open in October when New England only allowed seven points to the Rams.
