Howdy! I'm a typical Pats fan who jumped on board only when the team started winning. I'm a really big fan of Tom Brody and Bill Bellicheck because they are so awesome. I always root for them while wearing my pink Patriots hat (because it's sooooo cute!) and love it when they score touchdowns! Just kidding, guys. I've been a fan of the Patriots for as long as I can remember. Even though I've lived in Texas for most of my life, I started out life up in the Boston area and my love of the sports teams from there has followed me since. I'm yet another person who suffered through the Patriots crushing defeat in SB XX and then had to endure losing season after losing season (including the infamous 1-15 year) until Kraft bought the team and brought in the Big Tuna. I've been lurking around here for a little while, but decided it was time to sign up in order to provide better balance against the Cowgirls trolls who will be showiing up here this week. I live in the heart of Cowboys Country (Austin, TX) and I get sick to death of hearing about them 24/7. Anyways, I'm glad to have found a good hangout to discuss the Pats. I look forward to becoming a regular here!
