This story goes back to the first season at then Shaeffer Stadium.Everyone knows the stories about the toilets not being installed for the first game,and the huge traffic mess getting to the first few games but here's a story many either don't know or have forgotten. This story has to do with a long forgotten Patriots Linebacker from The University of Tennessee,Steve Kiner.He came to the Pats from Dallas and almost immediately became a starter.In those days ,The Patriots Defense was pitiful to say the least.It was so bad that in consecutive seasons their Free Safety led the team in tackles !Ricky Harris ,take a bow! Steve Kiner came in and began making plays.He used to fly around the field with his hair flowing in the breeze beneath his helmet.He became somewhat of a "Cult Hero" to The Foxboro Faithful. Now ,"The Rest of The Story", Steve also enjoyed "The Herb" and would often show up high to practices and games.He also lived in an Old Greyhound Bus for the first year at Foxboro in the Parking Lot at the Stadium! He and his girlfriend were quite a sight to see for everyone tailgating before the games.This was in "The Hippie Era" and they both lived that lifestyle while He played for The Patriots.After Games win or lose Steve and his Girlfriend would come out and join the party.Somehow I don't think behavior like this would fly with the current regime. For You younger guys that was your father's Foxboro.It was a far different place than today.I hope You enjoy it Italian Pat Patriot !
