    Hey Folks,

    So where is everybody from? I'm from Moncton, NB, out in the Maritimes. I've seen 3 games live and am looking forward to the 4th game in 2010.

    Grew up in Winnipeg (go Blue Bombers). Live outside of Vancouver. Have seen 2 games live. Made my trip to Mecca (Foxboro) in Oct. '07 to see the Pats beat the Browns. Was in Seattle in Dec. '08 to see the Pats squeak one out against the Seahawks.

    Winnipeg here. Have seen the Pats live twice, once in Minnesota in the nineties and flew down to see the AFC Championship two years ago. Have been a fan since the Bledsoe, Curtis Martin era.

    Southern Ontario here, about 90 minutes from Toronto. No live games yet, but I have been to the Stadium twice and met a bunch of the players at Vince's fundraiser this year.

    Planned to go to the opener this year, but my wife is due for our fourth child on August 30 and it stuck me as possibly insensitive, hehe. Might get a new parka and catch the annual winter embarrassment of the Bills.

    From Edmonton here. Saw the Pats in person for the first time last winter in Seattle since I was able to score tickets from work. Going to a home game in October this year.

    Born in Edmonton, but lived in the city that rhymes with fun (Regina) for 28 years - go Riders!

    I have yet to attend a game. :( Wanted to see them in Seattle last year, but didn't want to drive through the mountains in December.

    One day I will get to a game ...

    We get Boston channels here too... I actually listen to WEEI in the car on the way to/from work.

    Southwest Nova - not a football hotbed, but those who like it, like the Patriots.

    The Martimes seems to have a strong following for the Pats and Bills since there the nearest NFL teams and as a previous poster mentioned, the games were/are always on local TV.

    Living in Halifax at the moment for university, but from Cape Breton originally. I have only been to one Patriots game, but I attended the SD/NE game back in 2007 the week after Spygate broke out. It was quite an experience!

    Born and raised right in Toronto, I was 12 years old in 1993 and looking for an NFL team to start following religiously. Despite being force-fed the Bills on a weekly basis, I resisted the urge and decided to become a Patriots fan. Let's just say it was the best decision I've ever made.

    I saw the Pats live for the first time in 2004 and loved it so much, I promised I would attend at least one game each year. I knew I had to make the trip to the mecca in Foxboro at least once in my life, and decided the following year would be the right time. Rather than waiting until I was finished university and had a real job or possibly a family, I flew to Boston with a buddy (Colts fan - yuck), and we forked out some big cash for 4th-row tickets to MNF - Brady vs. Manning. Yes, the result sucked, but the experience was still amazing.

    Based on the results of all the games I've seen live (see below), I've come to the realization that making the 90-min drive to Buffalo on an annual basis is a much safer bet.

    1:00 PM Sunday, October 3, 2004 Buffalo Bills W 31-17 Ralph Wilson Stadium
    9:00 PM Monday, November 7, 2005 Indianapolis Colts L 21-40 Gillette Stadium
    1:00 PM Sunday, October 22, 2006 Buffalo Bills W 28-6 Ralph Wilson Stadium
    8:15 PM Sunday, November 18, 2007 Buffalo Bills W 56-10 Ralph Wilson Stadium
    1:00 PM Sunday, December 28, 2008 Buffalo Bills W 13-0 Ralph Wilson Stadium

    It's not that bad of a drive. When my wife, myself and a co-worker went last November for the Jets game, we left at 10am tuesday morning and were in Boston by 7:30pm, including stops for food and the lovely New Hampshire Liqour store off the highway.

    I want to go this year badly but were getting a major kitchen renovation done at our house anytime now. I've promised myself that 2010 will be my next visit.

    I am from Montreal. Went to Foxboro for the the time in 1994, against the Raiders. It became an annual thing until 2001...I've never seen a game at Gillette so far, but hoping 2009 will be different !
