Certain things immediately put sports into perspective. Getting your house robbed is probably one of those things.
New England Patriots safety, Derrick Martin, was on the losing end of the AFC Championship game this past weekend as his team went down to Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens. Shortly after having his season end, he learned that his Colorado home was robbed.
According to Deadspin, two masked men, armed with guns, broke into Martin's Aurora, Colo., house around just as the AFC Championship game was wrapping up. One adult and several children were home at the time, though no shots were fired and no one was hurt. The robbers got away with "numerous items of value."
Martin has been on the past two Super Bowl winning teams as a member of the New York Giants last year and the Green Bay Packers the year prior. While the robbers might have known that the football player would be out of town, police in Aurora, Colorado say that "there was nothing said during the robbery that would indicate that."
Talk about taking some L's, damn.
