Nobody can figure out how a Southern boy from Tennessee became a Pats fan. Well I was a Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins fan from birth. In 1995 I was transferred to Boston, rented a place in Lowell, and was blessed with Sox, Bruins, and Patriots season tickets. Voo-Ah-Lah! My devotion to the Pats was cemented when my son decided he was going to be the biggest Peyton Manning fan in the world. Its my fault, I used to take him to games in Knoxville. We've had a lot of fun with that rivalry and were fortunate enough to have been at the 2006 AFC championship game. Still dont know how we screwed that one up.
