Hi Everyone, As victors of three Super Bowls and numerous conference championship game appearances, perhaps sometimes we even lose site of how special it is to be playing in conference championship weekend. I mean, let's consider the unpredictability of the NFL. A few weeks ago, the 11-1 Texans were cruising through the regular season. They looked to be battle tested and ready for any oncoming challengers. Their team is absolutely loaded with Pro Bowlers and it's hard not to rave about their defense. Fast forward a few weeks later, they have gone 2-4 in their last six games and are now sitting at home pondering who they might pick in the upcoming draft. The Denver Broncos were 11-1 in their last twelve games and were the media darlings of the league. Of course, that ONE loss happened to be at the complete wrong time (in the playoffs) with an unlikely wishful hail mary heave that extended the game and led to the Broncos' eventual doom. This team, very hopeful of Super Bowl titles much like our own fan base, will also be at home watching the conference championship games. There are only four teams left out of 32, and we are one of them. Think about that. That's a tremendous accomplishment that we sometimes take for granted. Win or lose this weekend, it will have been a good year for the Pats, hopefully they can continue to extend it to make it a great one. Despite the Gostkowski missed kick against the Cardinals and the fourth quarter collapses against both the Ravens and Seahawks, the Pats are right where they want to be.......at home during conference championship weekend. Now time to enjoy the show.
