Yeah, as noted in most of my posts here in this thread. I'm the resident Pats Person.
I grew up in suburban NY. The Jets and Giants both sucked most of the time, but we got a channel out of Hartford that carried the Pats games. They drafted Bledsoe and Martin and the team got pretty good, so I started watching.
The eight years I spent living in New England and multiple games at Gillette every year I went to didn't hurt either.
