    Hi Pats fans,

    I am a Boston-based reporter for National Public Radio, and I'm reporting a story about a guy from NH who's having a Patriots helmet tattooed on his head.

    I am looking for stories about other crazy/hardcore Pats fans who have done similar or crazier things to show the degree of their fanhood.

    Please respond to this thread with your stories and list an email address so I can contact you if I have questions.

    Thanks
    SM

    Don't take this the wrong way (or, DO, because what do I care?), but I would be fairly suspicious that NPR could put a wonderfully snotty slant on ordinary NFL fandom. Having said that, I'm not sure there's ANY way to spin positive about a guy who tattoos his team's logo on his head.

    nah, this story is for a show called Weekend America, and NPR doesn't look down on any kind of fandom. It's interesting and sad, though, that that perception exists.

    Interesting, yes; but I'm not as saddened by it. Good luck with your project, though. And I mean that.
