    for us, Pats Fans in Europe, has started a very very long day

    the game will start here at h 00,30 a.m. (allready monday) - it means we will go to sleep (if you can consider 'sleep' a couple of hours...) at approx h 04,00 but for our loved Patriots this and much more !!!


    at h 21 we will start to see Chicago and New Orleans

    let's hope this long day will finish well with a win at Indy

    beer or wins, snacks, ready for the long night ?

    ItalianPat, do you like Fellini? I think I would watch a Fellini festival to pass the time.

    I have only watched 1 or 2 films, but I read his biography and his quotes and humor are marvelous.

    Hey Italian Pat, kudos to you. You are a true fan. Up that late to watch the Pats only to get an hour or two of sleep before work. And if the Pats win, getting back to sleep won't be easy. It'll be too much adrenaline! You are a true fan though. A friendly suggestion, after the game call in sick and get some sleep then. And by calling in sick after watching your favorite football team win (hopefully), you'll be an honorary American for life :D

    Yep, 11:30pm game time here in the UK, meaning I won't be getting to sleep much before 3am. Am I bothered? Like hell. Go Pats!

    Italian Pat has it even worse than we do in the UK, being an hour ahead of GMT. I think his love of the Pats borders on insanity (but I mean that in the nicest way). I got up around 9 today, have banked on getting some sleep in the early evening, listening to the game from 2330 to 0300 and then getting up at 0730 tomorrow for work.
    Luckily, I'm on a course tomorrow and don't have to be at work until 0945. Last week, I thought that I could listen to the game "as live" in the Field Pass archives on the Monday, but I was so hyped that I got up anyway. I was shattered last week but it was well worth it. I haven't been that pumped about a game for a long, long time.

    If it is any consolation it is a very long day for all of us, no matter what side of the pond we are on.. I prefer 1:00 PM games, late in the day games are often tortoruous.

    I have only just woken up, at 11:00 AM here in England. I won't go to sleep now until after the game, so that's it. The best thing is I will have to take Monday off college, before exams on Tuesday. And all just to listen to the game. After the San Diego game I woke everyone else in the house up too, they weren't best impressed. :)

    Italian Pat, Gomez, English Pat, you guys are true fans...!!

    By the way, it's 7:20 early Sunday morning right now, and outside in the darkness there's a good omen for today's game, it's....snowing! Our guys are gonna feel right at home when they get up. The first snow of the year here in central Indiana.

    PS - Same for Fonsy and PatJew - don't want to leave you guys off !! By the way, I used to be stationed in Spain Fonsy, at Torrejon right outside Madrid. Great place and a fabulous time..!

    JMHO but I'd love to see some press devoted to Patriot's fans living outside of the US. So often we see interviews with fans living in opponent country and how difficult that can be,but not much if anything about the total dedication it takes to be an international Patriot fan.These are great stories and deserve to be heard.
    I'll never again complain about going to work tired.

    Actually for me it's been pretty easy the past couple of weeks. I just go to work LATE. Though emotionally drained.
