Robert Kraft ‘might be a little late’ to Patriots-Chargers game if Revolution win MLS Cup

It will be a big Sunday for the Kraft family Sunday in California as both the Revolution and Patriots will be in action roughly 125 miles apart. The Revolution will be taking on the L.A. Galaxy in the MLS Cup in the afternoon and then the Patriots will take on the Chargers in San Diego at night.
“I will definitely be at MLS Cup,” Patriots and Revolution owner Robert Kraft told USA Today. “I am planning to get to San Diego too, as long as we get the helicopter permits.”
The MLS Cup is set to begin at 3 p.m. EST and the Patriots-Chargers has a kickoff set for 8:30 p.m. EST.
The Revolution will be playing in their fifth MLS Cup and are 0-4 in those games, so if they were to win against the Galaxy — who feature league MVP Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan, and are seeking their third championship in four years — Kraft might be staying a little bit to celebrate.
“It is an important game for the Patriots and San Diego is a tough team,” Kraft said. “But if we win the MLS Cup and I am there celebrating with our team … well, I might be a little late.”
