Google Groups archives Usenet posts from as early as 1981. Patriots posts don't show up until 1983. It's an interesting time waster to peruse some of the messages. I have found things that I had forgotten like this from 92: The local sport radio mentioned that Buddy Ryan had joined the New England Patriots. Can someone confirm this?? Say it ain't so... those poor Pats'. Going from a lovable, inspiring coach (Mac) to a real S.O.B. (Ryan). Here's the link. http://tinyurl.com/32tk6y Just fill in the dates for searching at the top.
