    As the season is beginning to start ,I thought that an interesting topic would be to see which game was everyone's first game to attend live.My First Patriots Game was the year before they moved to Foxboro and it was at Harvard Stadium.The Opponent was Johnny Unitas and The Baltimore Colts.It was the game that Bob Gladieux got called out of the crowd to report to the Patriots Locker Room and He went out and made the opening tackle.Both of The Patriots' Starting Cornerbacks John Charles and Larry Carwell walked out of the Patriots Locker Room just before kickoff in a salary dispute.Just a typical "Day at The Office" in those days.Our big hope in those days was Ron Sellers,the Patriots First Draft Pick.They lost that day but I was hooked,39 years later ,I'm still on The Team

    My first live Pats game was a Monday Nighter in 1981 against the Dallas Cowboys. Tony Dorestt ran wild and killed us. I'll never forget the big sign at Sulivan Stadium as we pulled in off the highway. It read, "Evreyone welcome except for Howard". For a kid from Toronto, it was an extraordinary experience.

    The first Superbowl season, 2001, against the Browns, the last season at Foxboro Stadium. It snowed the night before, and it was freezing sitting in those old bleachers. And I loved every minute of it.

    I attended the very first game against Denver. The Patriots'

    defensive back tried to make an interception and missed. A

    long yardage play resulted and it set up the winning field goal.

    I have been a Patriots' nut ever since.

    I was only seven, but, I was there for the very first Boston Patriot game and the ending was a heartbreaker.

    9/9/60 Boston Vs Denver.

    It was this game. Something about the National Guard being called in, I think.

    At Foxboro against the Vikings i think it was 91 or 92. Pats won with a field goal in overtime as the clock expired. I recall a delay of game due to the stadium losing the lights. Sounds on par for the old stadium.:rolleyes:

    They are in the top five - no doubt......the "safety" game was sweet.

    My first was another game in which the power went out: Jacksonville at Foxboro for the 96 AFC Championship. I was 10, and cold but had the time of my life. I can't wait to get back at Farvre twice this year.

    My first game was much worse than my 1st time.

    Froze my butt off on those aluminum seats that were oh so cozy.

    Wondered why anyone in their right mind would want to watch a game in that place. An open concrete bowl built atop of hill with aluminum seats. Just leaving that place it felt 20 degrees warmer in the dirt parling lots than it did in the stadium ... ah my first time.... If only I had been old enough to drink .... I may have enjoyed it.

    I am one of the very fortunate to have been born into season tickets and I was too young to remember my first game. It was when I was four and I have enjoyed easily over a hundered games since.


    THANK YOU VERY MUCH DAD and BEFORE HIM PAPA JOE (THE MAN WITH THE VISION TO KNOW HOW MUCH THIS GAME WOULD DOMINATE OUR FAMILY AND GIVE US SOMETHING TO BOND OVER)


    note: I am spoiled :)

    I think we were at the same game!!

    1981 season, the Pats were like 1-13, and it was sub-zero, they lost to Buffalo something like 20-10, I went with a Buddy from High School we had between us, one set of gloves, one seat cushion, and a flask of whiskey (in one of those brown soft sided hunter flasks) and passed those three items between the two of us.

    And yes, we were not old enough to drink (even with the 18 year old drinking age at that time).

    This was my first game also, I could'nt hold my liqour so the details of the game were foggy but I was able to rally for the OT. Hey what can I say it's a long cold drive down from the stix.
