As a New York Giant fan I never thought I would say this, but thank goodness for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

CBS Boston News is reporting that earlier this week Robert Kraft sent his Patriots plane to China to pick up coronavirus medical supplies. A Patriots spokesperson told CBS the Patriots "Boeing 767 went to Shenzhen, China Wednesday to pick up 1.2 million N95 masks."

The Governor of Massachusetts and Kraft teamed up to get the masks, which needed to come over in 2 planes, back to the US. Part of that agreement was that 300,000 masks would go to New York State.

The N95 masks left Boston early Friday morning with an escort from the Massachusetts State Police.

I'm happy to see in stressful times like these that we can forget the past and work together for a better future.

Thanks again, Mr. Kraft!
