    just back now after an awesome week end

    saturday afternoon photo with 2 Bucs cheerleaders near Trafalgar Square

    saturday from h 18 to h 22 at Sports Cafè in London with approx 500 Pats Fans with
    some very special guests:
    - Mr Robert Kraft (when he arrived it was awesome: i was able to shake hands with him and i told 'i come from Italy')
    - photo and autograph on my flag with Troy Brown
    - photo and autograph on my flag with Gino Cappelletti (we talked also expecially about Italy)
    - photo with Gil Santos
    - photo with John Smith and a very long talk together
    - photo with Pat Patriot
    - photo with 4 beautiful Pats cheerleaders (wow...)

    then Sunday the NFL Tailgate + Green Men

    at the end of the game photo with Warren, Bodden (i talked with him a little bit), Alexander and LeVoir

    autographs from them plus Neal and Burgess

    i saw very well Brady (impossiblle to reach him), Belichick, Wilfork and some others

    plus also Bucs players (i had Leftwich at 3 metres)

    at the stadium the majority without a doubt were Patriots Fans but i counted more or less fans with all the other NFL teams too with their jerseys

    imho the neutral fans were 'with' Tampa Bay

    the game was more or less always in our controll

    really a beautiful week-end my friends

    thanks also to UkPats fans !

    surely a nice experience

    yes

    when i arrived at Heathrow airport i immediately saw 6 fans surely coming from the New England area with Pats 'colours' and i was allready excited...

    at the Stadium (outside) was like an 'home game' for us: there were thousand Pats jerseys, colours...

    awesome

    I've been waiting to hear from you. Looks like it was worth the wait!

    Yes, please post photos if you can. Glad you enjoyed it. It was a well played game, though the Bucs are a few years away.

    Mr Kraft is very approachable. I remember being at a preseason game in Washington DC. We had just takin our seats when Mr. Kraft was walking by us on his way to the field. I guess he was up in the booth, or something. Anyway, My Dad (who's never quiet) yells to Bob. He turned around, and the two start talking about the team. He's really friendly, and appreciates the fans.

    I watched the game in Cambridge, Massachusetts -- and Logan Airport (which had a big Good Luck, Patriots! sign hanging over the way into the International Departures lounge).

    That's a great story. He reminds me of my Dad (Mr Kraft, that is -- not your Dad!) He was a businessman, but, whenever he visited one of his stores, he would start serving customers. He loved it, and I suppose it kept him in touch. Mr Kraft runs the Patriots as a business, but he obviously has a fan's heart. I'd love the chance to shake his hand.

    That's quite the personal endorsement right there, Mike.

    I wonder how many Redskins fans feel that way about their owner.

    thanks RayClay

    i think the Patriots are the most european popular team (so not only in Uk)

    it was also nice because behind me there were 2 fans (really strong and with knowldge from Iceland) and near them 3 fans from Ireland

    with made always high five after a td

    i saw also Mrs Baker wife (she had the white jersey with his name near myself when we entered the stadium)

    the good thing is that all were very kind

    Warren was nice...with Bodden i talked, i made him couple of questions, he replied with courtesy and he told me 'i appreciate' (very good Leigh !)

    Alexander also was kind (he had a blue jersey with old logo and Boston Patriots on it) and my photo with him looks very good

    i think i 'lost' Wilhite, Seau and Meriweather as i was 'busy' or 'unable' to reach them

    Brady was impossible to reach...really; but i was very near him too

    Brady jersey's was absolutely n.1 (thousands imho)

    i think Bruschi was 2nd (really a lot with #54) - then Moss and Welker

    concerning the neutral fans i saw some GB Packers jersey's (some 'cheesehead too) but ALL 32 NFL team were 'covered' (at least i saw 1 jersey per team)
