Welcome to the first post of my Patriots blog! I know what you're thinking. Aren't you a Red Sox fan? And, you'd be right. But, just because I'm a Sox fan first and foremost, am I supposed to ignore the other sports in town? Certainly not. Might I sometimes have things to say about those sports? Of course I might. Isn't it a great idea to have a place for other Patriots fans to see what I have to say about their favorite team without Red Sox stuff getting in the way? Isn't it just as great to not force Red Sox fans to read my thoughts on the Patriots? Again, yes...and yes! So, I created this little corner of the internet to do just that. How often will I post? Oh, I don't know. Less often than I do on Section 36. But, hopefully enough to keep you interested. It's definitely a work in progress. We'll see how many great features from Section 36 I bring over here. I could certainly see "pictures" being a lot of fun in silver and blue. I'm excited about having a place to talk about some of the great Patriots books I've read. Who knows...maybe I can even get a "visitor" or two to stop by. This should be fun. Stay tuned.
Until then, check out some posts I wrote on Section 36 that talk about the Patriots as well. Enjoy!
In "Well, Now Who's Going to Throw Out the First Pitch" I discuss how lucky we've been to have champions around for opening ceremonies.
In "One Big Family" I talk about the mutual respect and fun that goes on between the Boston Sports teams.
In "The Balls Were Never at 12.5 PSI..." I talk about, well...you know.
In "Which Images Make Your Grid of Champions" I wonder what the iconic image is from each of the recent Boston championships.
I also reviewed the book "Wicked Good Year" by Steve Buckley, which focused on the incredible 2007-2008 stretch in Boston Sports.
The plan is for me to be adding lots more great content just like that, but right here on this blog. This is where it will be all Patriots, all the time.
I hope you'll be back!
Insult and Injury - The worst part for fans (or me, at least) about the gut wrenching Gordon Hayward injury is that we've all been there before. An injury at the start of the ...
