"A lot of people say it must be difficult and must be challenging to be the chief in Foxboro, but I come from having managed bike week in Laconia, where the hell's angels made the New England headquarters and managing national police forces and some of the most complex environments in the world. In more than 40 countries around the world that I want to do stadiums and terrorism and internal strife like we don't see you here in the United States so by comparison, Monday night football is pretty tame." said Baker.
