Kids, pay attention, because this is just how you do it.

A man who acts as a mascot for the New England Patriots is among 14 people who have been arrested for prostitution-related crimes in Rhode Island since a new law went into effect that banned indoor prostitution.

The bill signed into law in November made prostitution a misdemeanor crime regardless of where it occurs. Previously, indoor prostitution was allowed because of a legal loophole.

State Police say Robert Sormanti of Warwick was among those arrested in an undercover sting at a hotel. The Providence Journal reports Sormanti is among the team's mascots.

Though really, with the insane fan attention that is showered on the Patriots in New England, one supposes some synergy existed between the two gigs.  Side note: how cool is it that Rhose Island's state legislators are so incompentent incompetent that they legislated a loophole legalizing prostitution and then wrote a whole new law to make it illegal again.  Rhode Island is in the best of hands.

UPDATE: Me fail English, that's unpossible.

UPDATE II: Welcome fellow Gormogincan acolytes.  Tetreaultvision traffics in sports and cultural commentary, while ensuring Puter has adequate supplies of tranquilizers to corral the rabid beasts the Mandarin lets loose in Castle Gormogon.
