It has been a long time coming, but here it is, my first blog entry. This first entry is going to be short and sweet just like the sweet tea I am sipping on, but I am going to check in weekly to share my thoughts about the season with my five things that I am looking forward to seeing each game.
My name is Diana, and I am from a small town called Plymouth, Connecticut. I come from a family full of Patriots fans. I have been pro Boston sports ever since I was a kid and grew up watching just about every Bruins game thanks to my dad. Amongst playing with barbies and being a cheerleader, I had a passion for football – Patriots football. I would watch every game I could and even fall asleep to Sportscenter. My goal is to become a sportscaster someday and hopefully be on sideline near you!
I don’t care if Titans fans get offended when they see me wearing my Wes Welker Jersey on game days.
As for right now, I am coming to you live from my laptop, and am in a place I never thought I would be, Nashville, TN. I’m now a displaced New Englander embarking on a new adventure in the land of the Tennessee Titans. This is my first season outside the comfort zone of Patriots banners, license plates and window clings. I am in Tennessee with my Connecticut plates (in Patriots trim) wearing my Patriots hat and still showing every ounce of Patriots pride around these Titans folks. My love for football is strong and the Patriots are my passion, so do not let the girly-girl image fool you. I can wear heels with my Wes Welker jersey if I want to! I’m kidding of course…although not about the Welker Jersey.
I am not a bandwagon fan or just a Tom Brady lover. I know my stuff and have been loyal even going back to the Drew Bledsoe era. Whether it be improvements or praise, I will highlight my concerns and profess my love for the team that will always have my heart. With the preseason behind us, we are now just a week away from the regular season and I could not be happier.
Well, NFL Live is calling my name. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to being in touch with all of you soon!
