The great Fitzy wandered into the Gilette Stadium parking lot this past week to ask tailgating Pats fans on what message they had for Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski as they return to New England this Sunday night. The dynamic duo led the Patriots to glory, so the emotions are running high as our guys, now our enemy, come back to the place where it all happened.
No biggie. Just the biggest regular-season game in the history of the NFL. Tom Brady, who spent 20 years and garnered six Super Bowl rings, comes back to Gillette to face his old team and the coach that many believe was the reason for his departure to become Florida Man. This is epic. Shakespearian. With the entire nation watching.
Someone around here found an old DVD in their desk this week labeled "Pats 2002". So naturally, our interest was piqued, and when we popped it in our old DVD machine, we found some never-before-seen footage of Portland's New England Patriots Super Bowl Parade and Rally from April of 2002. This was the birth of the Patriots' Dynasty-we had no idea that this team would go on to win SIX Super Bowls!
