So Sunday’s are kind of hard for me between September and February. It’s the one day a week (besides certain Thursdays, Saturdays, and Mondays) where Hockey takes the backseat and Football becomes my main priority. Afterall, I did spend most of my life on the football field being a cheerleader & all.
And in the New England football world, today might as well be the Superbowl. My Patriots are taking on the New York Jets — the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year, ending their season extremely early. I must say, for you football fans, my team is looking mighty fine in their throwbacks.
Anyway, as if today’s game wasn’t special enough…Gillette Stadium had a few VIP guests. Any guesses?
And the Bs brought a very special friend with them for a play date…
So as I’m writing this, the score is 27-21 Patriots with 7:14 left in the 4th and the Stadium is going completely insane. Every time the audio department plays that familiar bruins goal horn, the stadium erupts in a way that I’ve never heard it. It’s not a typical football crowd roar…it’s a hockey roar. The kind that makes the ground rumble and gives you chills. Something I’d never think I’d hear at Gillette Stadium. And I can’t help but think this one man is responsible for the vibe in Foxboro, Massachusetts today….
It’s obvious to me now that Horton is a good luck charm & he obviously needs to carry a Gatorade bottle full of melted ice to EVERY away game this season.
Needless to say, I’ll be going to bed a happy girl tonight. My 2 favorite sports have collided in one 3 hour spot. There’s so much sexiness on my HD tele that I can barely handle it.
GO PATS! GO BRUINS!
