    Monday night at Broncos a few years back. The intentional safety game. Givens caught the game winner directly in front of me. That's one crazy stadium that went dead silent at that moment. Awesome.

    I was at that game. First game I'd ever attended. We were stuck in traffic for hours before finally getting to a parking "lot" (it was a dinky little yard). We missed the first half but got there in time for the really fun stuff. It was such a great experience with the snow and celebrations. Afterward I remember some Dolphins fans being in denial and shouting insults (wish I could see them again this year). Awesome time.

    Well, I am really going to be dating myself here....but having been to the Razor only once (when they beat the Jests in '03, good game but nothing special)...so I have to go back to Schaeffer Stadium days....my father got tickets through work and then later bought season tickets for a few years...Tough to pick out any game memories, since the Pats really sucked back then for the most part, and I was a bit young....
    ...Our seats were just about 20 yard line, maybe twenty rows up...awesome seats for half the game. I used to go with a friend and there was a guy next to us with binoculars and he'd let us borrow them to check out the cheerleaders (we were maybe 13 or 14, he and his buddies were doing the same thing...)
    I was at the first game after they rigged up the net to catch the field goals, and the first time they tried to raise it, the whole place started booing, and the fans right there grabbed the netting as it was being raised and wouldn't let them raise it, till the cops came...pretty funny stuff....
    And even then at my tender age, I remember thinking, boy this stadium blows....lol...nothing but a concrete bowl with rings of aluminum seating....
    Anyway, oldrover, not exactly what your thread is looking for, but I'm chuckling to myself as I type...and, I got a pair of tickets for the Eagles game on 11/25, and I am taking my father as an early Xmas present, he's a big sports fan but hasn't been to the Razor yet...maybe that will be the basis of a great memory 25 years hence....

    Pats vs Raiders around '80.

    We had one of those football square cards where everyone gets a number for each team. I had Pats 6 Raiders 3

    Scrore was 23-23 with seeconds to play and John SMith aobut to hit a chips shot FG.I win $100 excpet he missed the FG

    Card was for regulation so 3-3 guy was going to win, EXCEPT the Raiders were off-side. Seccond kick good. Pats win game, I win $100 bucks!

    Ha! I love it...

    During the first superbowl run a buddy and I did one of those on-line betting services, based in Antigua or some damn place. The one and only time I have ever done anything like. that. We each put up $50 and let it roll, taking the points each time and each walked away with $300. If we had bet straight up, without the points, it would have been ten times that....but who knew?

    Sorry, oldrover, getting OT here....lol

    The blizzard game vs the Phish for me as well. My family and I were crammed into a jeep for better than 5 hours. A friend had prepaid a parking spot for us across from the stadium. We were sqeezed in, in between two RV's. Ran over to the stadium for the start of the 2nd half. Sat behind two Fins fans. They were pissed when the snow started flying. Free tickets to boot!

    Favorite memory was the one and only time I bought tix fron Guido the scalper. The '96 Pats played a playoff game against the Steelers in Jan '97. Spent a fortune to take my brother, brother-in-law and my daughter so that she could have a guy thing tailgate experience. She loved it.

    Media favored the fat Bus and the Squealers. Obnoxious Steeler towel wavers made lots of noise, that is until the game started and the pounding commenced. Kraft's pre-game fireworks caused the field to be smoked over for the 1st couple munutes it was really hard to see the players. It was foggy anyway and that exacerbated the situation.

    Game starts out with a long Bledsoe pass to Theresa Glenn on the 5, and Curtis "Not Yet A Traitor" Martin ran it in. Curtis had a huge game. The D smothered the Squealers QB and the Bus. All ended well.

    Worth the small fortune for the tix.

    AFC Championship game in Miami, for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. Deafeningly loud. FUN and INTENSE. Overjoyed after the win.

    2001 The Pats "Coming Out Party" against the Rams.. Night Game.. Bunch of my buddies and I sitting up in the nose bleeds, Drunk as hell.. Way up there.. Anyone who has played ball knows when your team is on "D" your sidelines yell "DRAAAAAAWWWW" / "SCREEEEEENNN" or "PAAAAAASSSSS" when the opposing Offense is on the field right.. Well, the Rams, everytime they would do the above we would yell that.. Like if to say the players ever heard us..hahaa.. To this day we still laugh about... Good times... :singing:

    My one and only game was the "Marshall Faulk Bowl." It was vs. Cincinnati at Foxboro, and the loser was going to get the first pick in the Marshall Faulk draft. Of course, that game began a nice little streak, and we got Willie with the fourth pick.

    My tickets were compliments of Eugene Chung, who I think is really nice guy, even if he didn't pan out as a player.

    It was freezing and my friend and I were totally under-dressed. In our little complimentary promotion packs were included ice-scrapers, which came in handy for scraping the ice of the aluminum bleachers. My ass is still cold from that day!

    Anyway, that game was the beginning of my fandom. I haven't missed watching a game on TV since. Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm a bandwagoner.

    The Monday Night Game vs. the Steelers in '02.

    It was the first regular season game at Gillette (CMGI Field the week before).
    The banner was raised, Bob Kraft spoke, fireworks went off-
    They played Kordell's "the better team didn't win" soundbite on the jumbotron to get people fired up, we were in the awesome club seats at practically the 50 yeard line, a former President was in attendance for the coin toss (Bush)
    .....the atmosphere was just electric and the Pats played great for the win.

    Fans were just walking around with their mouths open and a "is this really happening?" expression.


    The AFCCG versus the Colts was pretty sweet, too.

    This one is a no brainer for me... 2001 PG vs. Oakland. AKA The Snow Bowl, Aka the Tuck Rule game. It was also the last game ever played in Foxboro. I got my ticket for free about 1hr before it started (stroke of fate), and the rest was history.

    Memories that I'll be telling my grand children someday. ;)

    2004 playoff game against the Colts, the 20-3 thrashing. I was so nervous before the game and then it started to snow and I knew we had it. Strangest seats I've ever had. 50 yard line, 4 rows from the top. It was like standing at the top of a ladder and watching your TV. "Cor-ey, Cor-ey" chants! Very satisfying game.

    I was at that game, too. What a demolition job. My brother was home from overseas for the first time in eleven months and my buddy gave up one of his tickets for him. The fireworks,, the old players coming out, everything was awesome that night.

    My first game ever was against the Chargers. My Dad took me for my birthday. (I think it was '81 or '82). What makes it memorable was that we got to vote at halftime as to whether the organization should change the Pat's logo.

    Two banners were paraded across the field.

    The new, proposed logo was a ridiculous looking minuteman head with a long flowing hat (didn't notice any "King of Rock and Roll" resemblance at the time). It received rather lackluster applause and quite a few boos from the crowd.

    When the Pat Patriot banner came out, we all stood and went wild with applause...all 15,000 of us! :rolleyes:

    I remember leaning over to my Dad and saying "What the heck are they thinking? The Patriots have the BEST logo anywhere!!! They'd be crazy to ever mess with it!!" :eek: :eek: :eek:

    That was probably one of my most memorable moments as I watched from a pub in Eugene, OR, where people were stunned to see the snow flying. It don't snow in Eugene but once every millennium. I felt proud of my brethren back home as they stunned and amazed the snow-impaired Eugenians with the funniest fireworks display in history.

    That was so cool that even snow-impaired people thought it was cool.

    That was so cool that it made snow-impaired people wish they could be there in the snow.
