We don't write about bank robberies here too often, unless of course that bank robbery involves someone wearing an eyepatch and a t-shirt of an NFL team. Coincidentally, that's exactly what happened on Tuesday.

A bank in Mansfield, Mass., was robbed by a woman wearing a Patriots t-shirt and an eyepatch, according to Boston.com. Although she didn't have an official Bill Belichick hoodie on, she was wearing gray sweatpants with the Patriots logo on it.

The suspect robbed the bank after passing a note to a teller. She then made her getaway wearing flip-flops, according to police. On a somewhat related note, I've never robbed a bank, but flip-flops wouldn't be high on my choice of footwear. They'd be slightly behind bowling shoes, but slightly ahead of crocs.
