I just want to say Go Pats!!!
You like the Pats and puppies? Where have you been all my life??
As for the Thursday game, I have Time Warner, who doesn't get along with the NFL channel. I did get the points for picking the Pack in a pool I am in.
The Cardinals are coming to town this weekend. The last time they played at NE I was there in a blizzard with a broken foot and NE dropped 47 on them. It was a lost season but a fun game.
