    4'2" cranberry gnome Fred Norman poses with towering WR Wes Welker in Wes's new private cranberry bog. Both Fred and the bog were part of an incentive clause in Welker's contract. Local sports agents spoke of Bob Kraft's clever planning to incorporate the incentive into the new Krafty Park at Patriot Place.

    Awesome promotion. Very effective, and the secondary coverage has been very good. Kudos to the person who planned that.

    So, I don't get it. Do the cranberrys grow in the water (sort of like algae)? Or do they get dumped in the water after they are pulled off of a bush or tree? And what are the stick things the guys are holding?

    Cranberries are hollow. When they are redy to pick, the fields get flooded and the cranberries float to the top of the water. It is easier to harvest them that way.

    Not to nitpick, but they are made of wood just like witches, which is why they float.

    Alternatively, they could also just be less dense than water, like many fruits are.

    No Jersey Selected

    Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and his personal bar tender await the arrival of a tanker truck of Vodka, and 2000 pounds of ice needed to make the world's largest Cape Cod.

    Randy Moss and Matt Cassel, standing off-camera:

    Randy: "Hey Matt--which do you think would be more embarrassing: standing up there like Wes, or being photographed holding a goat?"
    A few seconds of awkward silence
    Both: "The goat."

    My understanding is they have a "beater" machine that literally beats the bushes shaking the cranberries loose so they float on the water and then can be scooped up.

    OK, we did do the nose, and the hat, but she is a witch.....

    Cranberry "bogs" are giant fields surrounded by a moat and about 3ft levees, each bog has a reservior which they drain into the bogs at picking time to flood the bog and bring the cranberries to the surface. These reserviors make greart skating ponds in the winter, however riding your motorcycle on the tops of the levees will cause the mean old cranberry farmer to shoot you with his rocksalt loaded shotgun (which I can atest, REALLY, REALLY HURTS!!!!)
