I really don’t have any idea how old I was when I realized my team was a losing team.
Now, of course, the Patriots are going 5-for-5. But back in the ’70’s, a trip to Foxboro meant a great time reading a book and eating bad stadium food while the adults around me got tipsy. Those were the days before footballs were weighed, when concussions were expected, and by golly, we will stand behind our team. Wait, is there a game down there on the field? When the heck did that start?
It’s surreal, this Patriots-in-the-Super-Bowl thing. I am not the biggest Tom Brady fan. He’s a cad, but he’s our cad. We win with him playing. That said, he’s been around a long time now. Will we still win when he retires? No idea. Don’t care. Still my team. Go Pats!
