    Hey Guys,

    I'm aware there is a few aussies on here. I've been a longtime 'lurker'. I've been a huge Pats fan since I saw the "Snow Bowl" game. I've followed the team with great interest over those years...

    A funny moment was a few weeks ago, I live at Bondi Beach and I met a man from Boston who was wearing a Patirots hat. We had a long discussion and he was a very nice person.

    I just wanted to wish all the best to the team for this weekend... we will need it. But I tell you what, I have a good feeling. As taken for granted as he is, Tom Brady is the definition of a Quarterback, the skills and the poise to take a team all the way. Having him behind center must relieve much of the fear from you guys!

    I've also just ordered my first REAL patriots jersey, there is a number of fakes available at various stores in Australia, but receiving a real patriots jersey is a badge of honour.

    Cheers,
    eastsru;e

    Welcome and g'day. It's nice to have more fans from Asia-Pacific that I can picture hunched over their TVs early early Monday morning, just like I will.

    Probably too late for you now, but I watch on slingbox via my father's cable TV back in the US. Check out Slingbox on the web, it's very cool.

    What is this "fear" thing you speak of?
    Oh I remember! It's that feeling we all had when Bledsoe was our QB! ;) Gotcha!

    Luckily enough, I never watched Bledsoe in a Patriots jersey... well I did a few minutes....

    It's a good feeling watching him fail in Bills and Cowboys jerseys. Justify's BB's decision!

    Eastsrule - I've been to your country on three different trips and can't tell you how much I enjoyed it.
    The people are great and the sights are terrific. I've done Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Cannes (Barrier Reef), Hamilton & Hayman Islands. Didn't get to Ayers Rock yet or Western Australia either, but they are on my list of places to see.

    BTW - Have you heard the Waifs song about the waitress who lives in a funky little apartment down on Bondi Beach? I assume the Waifs are fairly well known "Down Under" but are probably not known by too many in the states.

    Welcome and congratulations on the cricket. "Unfortunately", in the U.S. (where I've been living) we couldn't get to see the games. That great American, Mr Murdoch, seems to have decreed otherwise. But from your monicker I think you're more concerned with Rugby League (another sport that Australia dominates, for you Americans :( ).

    Although I've only visited Australia once, my Mum used to live there (Echuca, Va) and my sister still does (Mullumbimby (!!!) NSW). Great climate, great food, friendly people -- I'd love to go back.

    That's a lie. No one from inside the city of Boston is nice. He must have been from Maine and said he was from the Boston area just to get the location close.:rocker:

    Welcome to the board.

    I'll say welcome to the board, through gritted teeth, from a Pom. Is there any way that you lot can let us win ONE game on tour, even just by a couple of runs? Please?
