    How did you become a Pats fan?

    Thanks for relating that. I fugured somebody here would know at least one. My brother in law gave up on the Red Sox after the WS in 1986. At least he stayed with the Patriots.

    How did you become a Pats fan?

    A lot of cool reasons for people becoming Pats fans. I was just thinking, I wonder how many fans gave up on them because of the 40 years without a title, picked up on another team and missed out on all this glory. :eek:

    How did you become a Pats fan?

    I saw one game at Fenway. Our seats were facing the Green Monster, across the field. I could have sworn a couple of high punts might graze off of it. Weird place to watch a football game. All part of the maturation of the Pats though.

    How did you become a Pats fan?

    Before the AFC and the Patriots existed, the Giants were televised into New England, so a lot of New Englanders adopted them as their favorite team. Kind of "barf" now, right?

    How did you become a Pats fan?

    I think it was announced in 1959 that the Boston Patriots would be one of the teams in the brand new American Football League. Nitpicking on you there. I was a fan from day 1. According to Pro Football Reference, the Pats played their home games on Friday night in 1960. Forgot that. 1960 Boston...

    SB LI was the greatest NFL game of all time.

    I invite you to go ahead and watch reruns of any and all other NFL games and tell me you found one that is more exciting. And, the first half was just "setting up" the huge comeback. If the Pats don't get behind majorly, there isn't the huge drama in the second half. Finally, I said IMO.

    SB LI was the greatest NFL game of all time.

    IMO. Some games that I thought were up there, the divisional game in 2015 vs. Baltimore, and SB XLIX, weren't even close for drama. I watched a rerun of the Baltimore game last night, well, from when it was 28-14 Baltimore. I'd forgotten that the Pats had it all tied up again by the end of the...

    Tom Brady - Earn it

    Certainly not one that goes from the guy below to the GOAT.

    Very very late thread about CBS broadcast of Super Bowl

    First, Collinsworth is a favorite of mine. He finds more nuances of things we can't see on TV to point out to us than anyone else color commentating right now. I know he made a big deal in SB49 about looking Tom straight in the eye, did you do it, etc., etc. That was "uncomfortable", but it...

    Jason La Canfora: Revis return to Patriots looking increasingly likely

    Bring him into camp and if he's willing to run up the hills outside Foxboro in August, to which some attribute the Pats outlasting the Falcons in February, sign him up. Otherwise, cut his ass.

    Dwight Clark has ALS

    Besides the 49ers, 31 other NFL teams also passed on Tom until the 6th round, making us lucky that he was still on the board. Dwight wasn't the only one that missed. Anyway, that's long gone now and it would be so good if somehow there were a breakthrough on a cure for ALS in time to help Clark...

    Dwight Clark has ALS

    As a 49ers as my second team fan, I watched a lot of Clark's games and catches, including The Catch. Besides being a fine receiver, he also always seemed like one of the nicest guys in the game. When coach Bill Walsh was getting weaker from leukemia, I heard a recount by Clark of him picking up...

    The Lombardi processional

    I think the dumb adjective went away after the first one though, unless it was dumb like a fox. I also thought Bradshaw was very much at ease, and funny with the whole presentation thing, and he certainly gave high praise to Kraft, Belichick and Brady.

    Maybe also called kicking the can down the road. Let's do this.

    Rambling comments about things already hashed and re-hashed, Super Bowl LI.

    On the other side, the DPI call on Campbell defending Bennett when Brady was trying for the winning touchdown from the 15 yard line was not completely obvious to me. Aikman said it was the right call as defender DeVondre Campbell didn't turn around to make a play on the ball. Campbell also had...

    Seahawks reportedly open to trading Sherman...

    Old Italian expression: she wouldn't get lost between the sheets. OK, enough.

    She's actually trying to get out of the fat chick jokes business. Warning: boring music.

    Butler & Saints working towards finalizing a deal (Thread now UFC Pats Fans Event)

    Maybe wrong phrase to use, but he is going around the system intended for a restricted free agent. So he got his feelings hurt by Gilmore getting the big contract. Take your 3.91 million and get paid next year.

    Butler & Saints working towards finalizing a deal (Thread now UFC Pats Fans Event)

    Thanks a billion for the interception, but he's still shooting his way out of town, IMO.
