If former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez wants to know the score of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, he’ll have to hope he overhears it from an officer or a fellow inmate.

“He’s not allowed to watch any TV,” Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told The Associated Press on Friday. “As far as finding it out, if they hear an officer talking about it, they might find out that way. He could probably hear about it if some other inmate were to call home and he were to yell out.”

Hernandez is being held without bail at the Bristol County House of Correction in North Dartmouth, Mass., under “special management,” a classification that allows him only three hours a day outside his cell. He isn’t allowed out at the same time as another inmate and he isn’t allowed any TV, Hodgson said.

The sheriff said there are currently four inmates in the eight-cell unit, and they can talk through their cell doors. Hernandez is also allowed telephone privileges, but not necessarily around game time.

Other inmates in the prison get two hours of television per night, and they usually choose to watch sports, Hodgson said. “Even they won’t be able to watch the two games,” he said.

Because Sunday’s game is at 3 p.m., they will probably catch the end of it during their regular window of 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Should the Patriots beat the Denver Broncos on Sunday and reach the Super Bowl, general population inmates would be able to catch the first 90 minutes or so of the game, which is scheduled to kick off at around 6:30 p.m. ET.


Man I bet Aaron Hernandez would kill for a TV right now. He’s probably got a pack of smokes on the Pats to cover. So if the goal is to punish criminals, wouldn’t they FORCE him to watch the game? That’d be like making Jerry Sandusky watch the Little League World Series.

Seriously though, I really had no idea prison was like this. From what I’ve been led to believe by the mainstream media, I was under the impression that prison was some kind of country club where everyone got to go to the gym all day, received tax-payer funded sex change surgery, and watch all the TV they want. Turns out I was only two-thirds right.

First of all, I’m kind of surprised that Hernandez wants to watch this game at all. Could there possibly be anything more depressing? The Patriots are in a state where they just legalized weed and Hernandez is stuck in a jail cell. He hasn’t smoked weed or had sex in more than six months. Doesn’t watching this game then constitute cruel and unusual punishment? Plus, would Hernandez be able to contain himself, what with all the talk about Manning and Brady being in a shootout? Well, at least if the Patriots kill the Broncos he’ll be able to say “It wasn’t me!!”

The Hernandez talk today made me wonder. Obviously Aaron Hernandez has a murdering problem. He killed Odin Lloyd, and probably a bunch of people before that. He’s being questioned about a double homicide in Boston, and is linked to several other murders. My question is, if he was such a veteran murderer then why did he do such a shitty job with Odin Lloyd? Dumping the body right by his house? Leaving a trail of bubbalicious evidence? Those are rookie murderer moves.

The biggest mistake he made was waiting until he got to the Patriots to become a murderer. He played college football in Florida. Florida!!! He could’ve killed 20 people down there, got arrested, found 12 idiots who believe he didn’t do it, and be back in time for opening kick off.
