    I am so stressed and excited it's like I'm a kid waiting for Christmas.

    Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Man this is gonna be an awesome game!!!

    Keys:
    1. Stop running game, force Gerarrd to pass a lot.
    2. Bring out the Air Force. Wide four in the first half.
    3. Special teams discipline.

    Do those three things, we should have a nice win. But then again, I'm not BB!!!

    I was just watching NFL Playbook on the NFL network, it's 4am my wife comes down, "What's up?" I'm like "I can't sleep I'm thinking about the Patriots game." Her, "Don't stress, the Patriots would want you to sleep."

    I gonna try to go get some sleep.

    sounds like a good wife, but as hard as some try, they just don't get it. it's not their fault, it's in our dna. for me, it's more excitement sprinkled with some stress. i'm going to have a rough night tonite. maybe my gf can help me relax.

    It's 5 am and I've been up since 3:30 thinking about the game. My wife tells me to get a life, but I have one. Right now it's the Patriots. I can't help it.

    Only 15 hours to go. Go Pats!

    The pats have definitely been on my mind, reminds me of the 1st SB win, was thinking about how Brady must have felt that day.. later found out he took a nap on a bench with his earphones on.. I realized how different these guys really are. If I were putting on the uniform, not sure I could have slept for the past 48 hours.

    3:21AM here and still anxiously waiting for tomorrow! IMO tomorrow is by far the more exciting day of the weekend between the 2 games. I know it's important for the players but I absolutely HATE the bye weeks, having to watch all the other teams play and not cheer on the best means that kickoff couldn't come any sooner HERE WE GO PATRIOTS HERE WE GO!

    yes; SKY (pay tv) will show 'alive' all play-offs (started from wild card)

    i.e today: at h 22,30 today they will start with Sea at Gb; then at h 02,00 am the Pats
    normally i 'hear' in original language as we have the 2 options

    during the regular season Sky here in IT shows 2 games alive every week (normally a Sunday 1 pm game + Monday Night)

    1 Thksgiving Game (this year was Nyj-Dal), the 2 Championships and Super Bowl also in SKY HD (normally)

    10 hours until kickoff.

    I am going nuts! Up since 3 AM. Already ate, ran, ate again. I guess I'll shower and then go out and buy some gloves. This day cannot go fast enough but it is already D R A G G I N G.

    I am excited, but nothing like when we played the Jags for the AFCCG in January of 1997. All I can say to young or new fans is that a large part of what makes this team special was enduring years of no-shows, and then finally getting to the dance with an outside shot of winning it.

    Yes, ultimate defeat did sting later, but it also added needed perspective and experience about how damned hard it is to be the best.

    For that matter, so did the loss to the Bears. And for that matter I can't say that I've ever been so jacked up for a run or game as that one. That was the first. That was a special experience, and again, the loss provided needed perspective. Now we're on the other side of that fence. We are now the Bears plus.

    And how would you know what the Bears plus were unless you knew the Bears directly? It was a good experience and it makes today's game even sweeter. Ask John Elway how sweet his losses made it when his owner finally handed him the Lombardi trophy and said, "This one is for John". Could that moment have been that moment without the losses?

    Didn't realize how amped up I am for this game. Not nervous, jus want to see some Patriots FOOTBALL! Was working on the house until 1AM, took until around 3AM to fall asleep, woke up at 4:30 AM and couldn't get back to sleep. Gave up trying at 7. Reading and re-reading every thread I can on the Pats to avoid working on the house, but probably should just get to it after I put the Patriots flag on the flag pole.....

    I slept like a rock last night ;) Now I'm @ work until 430pm PST. Then I'll be doing 80mph on the freeway heading home to a nice glass of scotch or a couple of Capt n Coke's during the game.

    Nice flag(s). Is that dead (dormant) round bush Lantana? I have a lot of it and it gets that way in the winter if the temp. gets down to 32 or so. I slept halfway normal but must be nuts asking about landscaping on a football board. Get it on! Git-R-Done.

    I know I'm the enemy here but I couldn't agree more. I couldn't sleep a wink last night and I was emailing my dad some photos from our Jags send off rally yesterday and I told my dad the exact same thing. Feels like Christmas at age 10!

    Sure is, thats my neighbors landscaping. Notice my nice green grass in Jan? Thats the same stuff the Pats have at the Razor. (I don't like yard work.) Had the Pats flag made at a local flag shop. Was happy this house I remodeled had no HOA so I could have a flag pole. Sucked taking down Old Glory on game day to put my Pats flag up...now I don't have to. Lanscaping, women, cars or whatever....anything to pass the time right now....only 9 hours...are you F'ing kidding me I think the minute hand just moved backwards on my clock!

    Slept like a baby as I'm not worried about the Patriots losing this one. Nice flag arrangement. I've got my Patriots flag I got from the Pro Shop out and might put up the one the wife got me for Christmas. I'd never seen one like this before, it's from The Party Animal. It's the Patriots one in the Tall Team Flags selection. It will be displayed proudly by the camper during the summer. :rocker:

    Working on 10 hours total sleep the last 3 nights. The jet lag has caught up to me. I'm going to eat a sang-witch and then try to take a nap. Should at least pass some time.
