    True story: He made my birth announcement card in 1965.

    My dad knew him and asked him to do it. We still have a few copies floating around my folks' house.

    I guess I'm a born Patriot!

    thks Shmessy: yes , you born a real Patriot !

    did he made designs with Pat Patriot ?

    i saw this week on the Globe the article about our loss January 1964 against SD in the AFL Championship and there was a design with a lightning with written 'Chargers' infortunately 'killing' Pat Patriot...

    he made it ? and he made many of that designs ?

    they are beautiful !

    Unfortunately, Pat wasn't on my birth announcement, but he did a great job on it nonetheless.

    42 years later, wherever he is, I hope he knows that it is much cherished.

    He was a cartoonist...like Larry Johnson...papers USED to have cartoonists that told sports headlines much the same way political cartoonists did...LJ is in that dying tradition..Growing up I LOVED how the sports pages were...now..it's lacking a great deal of nuance...maybe some better writers..more stats..but
    Bissel i believe is still alive...and in his early 80s..Pat Patriot was BIG in the early days of the Boston Patiots..the AFL one..and MANY of those teams were quite good...with the move to Foxboro..a new stadium..a new name..Pat Patriot retired..

    I hope they finally pay him! lol

    EDIT. I guess it was the Globe that took and gave it away. Billy gave him something. Not much, but probably the going rate for a cartoon then. Successful songwriter Willie Nelson sold "Crazy" for 25 bucks.

    I know a lot of people here are boycotting the Herald and Borges, but that was a pretty good column.

    That is a very rare must-read article from the Herald and Ron Borges. Nice story-- too bad he didn't make a little more off the drawing. It also includes the story of the "replacement logos" voted on by fan applause at a game, and nobody liked them but they loved Pat.

    He was asked to make the logo less angry-looking and more like a Disney cartoon character but wouldn't do it since his Pat was a blue-collar New Englander who scrapped for anything he ever got.
