    We did this thread a few years ago, and I figured it would be a good idea to get to know everyone again. Post where you're from, if you're a season ticket holder, how long you've been a fan, etc.

    I'll start it off.

    From: NH Seacoast
    Not a season ticket holder
    Pats Fan for 20-years

    P.S. I also have just learned of a terrific board upgrade that will occur when I shift us over for a final time to the dedicated server this weekend.

    Born in Milford, Ma although life has brought me to Dover, De

    Been a Pats fan since about 91, I guess being about 13 years old and having all the energy of Kraft, Parcells, Bledsoe and the new uniforms... pretty much the new team around that time. I do slightly remember my Dad having a Superbowl party vs the Bears though.

    Not a season ticket holder, never even been to the Razor or Foxboro Stadium. Went to training camp at the college in the early 90's though.

    Originally from Worcester. Moved to Chicagoland in 01. Yep, the year they won their first SB.
    Have been a fan since a kid but only as a passing interest at 8-10 yo. Was more concerned about GI Joe accessories.
    Fanship grew when Pats aquired Joe Kapp. Fanship quickly waned.
    Fanship again grew when Chuck Faibanks joined and gave us a glimpse of what having a good coach is like. Fanship never waned from here. Ebbed a little but never waned.

    Grew Up in Holliston MA
    Now live in Los Angeles
    Fan since the 80's, saw a bunch of games around 88-91, including one loss to the Saints where I served as a cameraman for our local cable access channel. Got to go on the field, in the press box, into the locker room, interview some players and cheerleaders. Needless to say I don't think any cable access crews are getting that kind of access these days. Just made it to my first game at Gillette to see the Brady era on opening day vs. the Bills.

    Have been a Patriots fan since mid 70's (Sam-Bam, Hog Hannah, Grogan, Mosi, etc).

    Grew up in Gloucester but lived in Newburyport for several years. Now living in Orlando, Florida.

    Loved the Pats when they were the worst team in the NFL.

    Many Thanks to Ian and the mods of this website.

    Thank you Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick.

    Thank you Tedy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel, Tom Brady, Richard Seymour, Troy Brown and the rest of the Pats for being the class of the NFL for 5 years and counting.....

    Grew up in Hyde Park
    Fan since the beginning,saw them play at Fenway Park,Harvard Stadium etc.

    Had seasons tkts.,in the old days,with other members of the Knights of Columbus.(we would go to 9:30 mass,go back to the K of C,drink until game time,see the game from the end zone.......THROW UP.......drink more...
    go back to the K of C after the game,
    drink more......THROW UP.....go home
    and get up for work the next day)

    Nowadays.....2 beers during the game,
    and I need a NAP!

    Oh,to be young and stupid,again!

    Still remember a game at Fenway Park,
    when Jim Lee Hunt returned an interception for a TD......I was close enough to tackle him.

    THOSE WERE THE DAYS!

    Pats fan since Jim Plunkett was the QB and they used to play the Giants(my fathers favorite team) in the Yale Bowl during preseason.
    Not a season ticket holder but try to get to at least one game a year. Was at the Miami game earlier in the season.

    And now I have my 12 yr old following the team so I've brought a second generation to Pats nation.

    Born and raised in the Midwest (Iowa) and lived there 'til 1988 (Nebraska, Illinois), then relocated to the Lowell area. Was a big Bears fan growing up.

    Attended one game each during the Berry, Rust, and McPherson regimes. Went to all but one of the Patriots' home games in 1993 when Tuna and Bledsoe arrived, and have been a season ticket holder since '94 (section 204 in Foxboro Stadium, and now section 227 in Gillette).

    Attended Super Bowls 38 and 39.

    Grew up on the Cape and now live in WMass.

    You could give me season tickets and I would not take them as I don't like watching football at the stadium.

    Have followed the team for 30 years.

    Live in Boston's North Shore.

    Pats fan since 1965. I feel blessed to have attended almost every important Patriot game since 1976, with special memories given to the Snow Plow (Miami) game, Snow Bowl game, and SB victories in Houston and JAX.

    Thanks Ian for your time and attention to this web site.

    Season Ticket Holder: Nope
    Pats Fan since: 1986 - When the Patriots beat the Dolphins in the playoffs - I got to rub into my bro' in law's face who is a huge Dolphins fan. Was in grade 9 at the time. Can you believe I was a Seahawks fan before that? Made the switch that night - never to look back and suffered through the 1-15 season and all of the recent glory.

    Fan: (sort of) since 1981 -- stupid enough to wonder why we passed over the Heismann Trophy winner (Marcus Allen) to draft Ken Sims. Still wondering about that ...
