Searsport, Maine — [A] locally owned supermarket is trying to help ease the pain of Deflategate. …
That snowball led to “Roger Goodell is banned from Tozier’s” and it fits right in with Dale’s mentality. He has been a season ticket holder for the last 23 years.
The sign is getting a lot of attention, both locally and throughout New England. “As long as it’s in good fun, I think it’s a good thing,” said Ray Smith, a customer.
What’s even more ironic: Tozier’s is at the corner of East Main Street and Goodell Street.
“People aren’t very impressed that Tozier’s is at the corner of Goodell Street. We’ve actually contacted the town officials and asked that we may be able to change that to Brady Street,” said Tozier, Jr.
Even though Searsport is a good 100-plus miles away from the seaside, monument-to-excess palace that Roger Goodell had slave labor build for him in Scarborough, this is still welcome news. The Commissar is already being banned all over Massachusetts, but the tighter the noose tightens around him, the better. We throw around the word “hero” far too often these days, but my man Dale Tozier here is a hero in my book. I’d purchase my discount liquor and “BY SUGAR 2/$4″ from him any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
My only problem with Tozier’s is what kind of clientele it’s attracting. Really, Ray Smith? “As long as it’s in good fun” you’re OK with it? Gee, thanks. I mean, we’d hate to cross a line or anything. Just because Goodell’s multimillion dollar witch hunt has not only disgraced Tom Brady to the point he’s booed wherever he goes, it’s costing your football team the best player in the league for four games and you’re out two draft picks that are never coming back. But yeah, let’s not go so far as to say he’s not welcome at grocers in northern coastal Maine. God forbid. With friends like Ray Smith Defending the Wall, who needs Jets fans?
Anyway, if Tozier’s noble efforts to get Goodell Street changed to “Brady Street” need any support, I need to know about it. Do the right thing, Searsport town council. Godspeed.
