    Still hoping Ron "the Humble One" Hobson takes a shot at writing the definitive story of the Patriots.

    From my experience, he is the greatest living chronicler of the team, plus he's a great football guy, plus he was always funny as hell in a very dry way. Worked every year of the Pats until he retired and his father was a writer and editor of Boston sports since 1930!

    I remember Hobson and Mannix as guests on the Sports Huddle with Eddie Andelman...this was before the current age of "look at me" sports "journalism"

    It baffles to no end how Wrong Bogus still hold such influence in an organization he despises.

    Because a professional journalist, by definition, is assumed to be objective and impartial.

    My guess is that Wrong Borgazz is only on the Pats HoF committee because for some inexplicable reason he is the person that the Pro Football HoF has designated to present Patriots players to the Pro Football HoF commitee.

    With the regular season being formally announced this week, that means that this year's Pats team Hall of Fame ceremonies will take presumably take place in week three; that typically occurs in week two. Week two is the Pats first home game, but is on a Thursday night.

    - Fan voting concludes May 15
    - Winner will be announced in early June
    - Pats HoF ceremony on Saturday September 21
    - Introduction at game versus Bucs, Sunday September 22
