Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
Thanks for sharing that great story. When that kick went through, I remember being in shock. Having been a Pat's fan for 26 years up until that moment, I had learned to expect the worst. I was expecting to see a penalty flag or something lol. When the players ran on the field, I started screaming. My ex-wife looked at me like I was nuts. Some people don't understand how great sports is, especially when you win it all.It's up there but nothing will ever beat 2001. I was 22 and lost my grandmother to cancer the day before the game. Visitation was that Sunday and I didn't expect to see the game. About 20 minutes before kickoff my mom told me to head to my grandpa's house to watch it. When the kick went through, I just remember being on the ground laughing. I couldn't stop laughing. It was just that moment that let me know things were going to be ok. Seeing the smile on my grandpa's face as he walked through the door was priceless, he was so happy for me and it was amazing to see his spirits lifted.
14 was amazing just to vindicate everything. For years I would say that I'm blessed as a fan and really can't ask for anything, but just give me one more. It was a wondeful night.
