I kind of hated those old helmets, but the new ones are sharp.
We don't have much of a rivalry with Boston in any area. The Nugs & Celtics are in different conferences. The Rockies & Red Sox are in different leagues. We see the Bruins maybe once a year. The colleges around here play UMass or Boston College once in a blue moon.
Then, to top it off Patswin is a class act. Which also makes it hard to get too riled up.
Ifthe Pats make it to the Super Bowl, I'll be rooting for them big time.
Can't say the same about the Chiefs, Raiders or Fins, though.
Can't fault much with this except I liked the Old Pats uni much better than the Elvis thing...whatever, I'm very much the traditionalist when it comes to uni's anyway...anyone who's gotten a blast of my disdain for the arena/cyborg look could tell you that firsthand....The Pats are odd in this uni thing because the team store at the Stadium carries just as much of the old look as they do the new (which I find admirable).
As I said, I've been to Gillette..it's a very nice Stade. I love the town of Foxboro and have some really close friends that live there, nicer people you'll never find...seeing team members around town is a usual thing, etc.
Personally, the Pats are just kinda there to me...I'm indifferent to them as a whole...I'll root for them if they're the AFC reps in the Bowl or if what they're doing is helping Denver at all...otherwise, I really don't give them that much thought.
I do believe Patswin is the
example that posters supporting other teams should follow when here at the Mane....respectful, friendly, a class act like the Old one says.....too bad some of those banned bums couldn't learn from him how to conduct themselves here or otherwise they'd not only still be here but be held in high regard as well.
