Shutdown Corner

Comcast SportsNet New England reporter Tom Curran is a funny guy and a natural prankster. So it's wonderfully fitting that the tables were turned on Curran following the New England Patriots' comeback victory — by the team's owner and president, of all people.

Robert Kraft might be one of the more respected NFL owners, one of the key figures in helping end the 2011 lockout, but he's not above a good butt grab. He and team president Jonathan Kraft — no doubt giddy his Patriots pulled an ugly one out against the Houston Texans — passed by Curran, who was doing a postgame hit on the field, and they just couldn't help themselves. Each man took his own playful crack at Curran's backside.

Watch Curran and the CSNNE host try to keep their composure during the segment.
