Happy Fourth of July to all my fellow Patriot and NFL fans on Patsfans.com. As summer begins for real, it sure won't be long until TC starts and before we know it, Labor day and football for real. The excitement we all share for this upcoming season seems to me to be much more than previous years. This may be due to obvious fact of Brady returning along with what appears to be one powerhouse of a team with very few holes. Also, for me and some of the other original Patsfans - this 50th season celebration means so much. Old school uni's - home and away, recognition of great Patriot teams past which all led to our decade of dominance that we are enjoying right now. Have a great Fourth everyone and the real fireworks are almost here!!
