Hulk Hogan declares he's a Pats fan

From out of right field this morning, former wrestler Hulk Hogan posted a Facebook video announcing he is a Patriots fan, even mentioning tight end Matthew Mulligan by name.

We're not sure whether there's a connection between the Patriots or Mulligan and Hogan, but the former champ seemed to be suggesting a title belt was in the New England locker room.

"With the world title belt around your waist or hanging in the locker room with the Patriots, you guys got a piece of Hulk Hogan there, Jack," Hogan says.

"Right in New England, you've got a piece of Hulk Hogan. And what that means, brother, is if you get tired, if [Tom] Brady gets tired, or if anybody's knees wobble, their back cracks or their liver quivers, brother, you can take one of the largest arms in the world, Hulk Hogan's arm, you can strap it to your hips and can score as many touchdowns as you want, brother."

We'll try to find out more today in the Patriots' locker room.

He finishes the video with his trademark line: "What are the Patriots gonna do now that they got Hulk Hogan running with all of you?!"
