Awesome Old Video Clips of the Week: 1994 Patriots' postgame coverage and Police Academy 6

January, 1994
The Patriots' dynasty will be remembered for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.  But in reality, it all began back in 1994 when Robert Kraft purchased the team.  We forget now how close they were to being moved to St. Louis.  Kraft shocked the world by buying one of the league's least valuable franchises for a then-record $175 million (read the details on wikipedia).

In response to Kraft keeping the team in New England, fans bought every ticket to every game that year, the first sold out season in club history.  They've sold out every game since.  The Patriots also closed that year on a seven-game winning streak to finish 10-6 and make the playoffs for the first time since 1986.  Ironically they lost the Wild Card Game to the Cleveland Browns, who were coached by Belichick.

There's not a lot Patriots stuff on YouTube from 1994, here's the most entertaining clip I could find:

It's a good think Jim Lampley rushed through that close to make sure Police Academy 6: City Under Siege could start on time...
