Hi guys, only recently discovered this forum and thought it prudent to jump on board. Been a Pats fan since 2001 (leading in to Red Sox and Celtics.. it's all gotta be Boston!) and since then been on a mission to find out all I can about the franchise. Absolutely mad about the Patriots, which many find bizarre here in Australia. Followed NFL somewhat as I saw a game as a kid on an Australian Football oval and became intrigued by it, without ever picking a team. For some reason or another, I became intrigued with the Pats end of 2000 early 2001 and have started following them ever since. Whilst making that decision, also decided to jump on board the Celtics and the Red Sox, much in the same vain. Hope to contribute to the boards and increase my Patriots and American Football acumen whilst here!
