I grew up a Bengals fan which was sort of like being a pats fan till the 2001 season anyway. I was in the af reserve and got activated after 9-11 and the Patriots became a beacon of light for me. I felt like it was patriotic that the pats won the sb a few short months later. Poetic I think.
I had been to a dozen or so games from 1985-2000 and the pats didn’t win very many games. You could buy tickets on game day.
I have averaged 4-6 games a year since 2002. I managed to get tickets for the division playoff game against the raiders. It was like 15 degrees and snowing like crazy. This was the tuck rule game… Lol it was a crazy place that night!
Lol I am retired but I work a part time job in the summer to pay for our MJ, pats Tix and a trip or two to Florida!
