What other interests do you have offline, other than the Pats? I know how consuming that can be, by the way. Have you ever considered writing about your life as a Pats fan? It's a heckuva way to leave a little something of yourself behind for your kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, etc. When mine someday ask, "What was he like?" they'll be able to learn about me straight from me. See what I mean? Writing's also about the most cathartic activity that I can imagine. I write for fun (and to make $$, hopefully, someday...I can't lie ) but I could definitely see myself using words to help center myself when things inevitably get tough. Just a thought.
