I was born in nj and moved between ny and here. I went to college in Boston, came back to nj to work, went back boston for the the bird years and moved back due to business
I am originally a Yankee (OMG not that lol), knick,jet fan
i fell in love with the bird celtics when in Boston and never stopped -even now
I really didn't care about any nfl team for a long while, had family in SF and loved watching Montana play, they "were" my NFC team
meanwhile I could only see the Pats living in Boston, I loved the Sunday globe, I rooted for the Pats. I hated R Berry, thought Flutie got screwed and have rooted for them ever since. I wasn't particularly a parcels fan. The Sullivan's were bozos, and had no feeling for Kiam. Kraft took over and I was totally impressed with everything, Being a Yankee fan I HATED Steinbrenner, thought him clueless and a bully. Kraft is the best
Kraft has never done anything that wasn't great. I will be a life time fan
Soooo you ask about the Yankees. I was never a Red Sox hater, I rooted for them against the mets. I root for them when they don't play the Yankees. But once jeter and Mariano go I probably won.t care on any team.
believe it or not the fans here and there are about the same.(Philly too)
The only thing that gets me about some fans is that they expect to win every yr and that they should have all stars at every position. I like the process of building a team. And rooting for them to win, its sweet when they do. for those who have read my posts, its pretty clear my bottom line is that all the players are All great when thy win and ALL could have been better when they lose. I love to dissect why something happens. but almost everyone here is better at the game than I am
I also respect everyone's opinion- if I disagree it ain't personal
If the pats had gone 19-0 i tell everyone I would retire as a fan lol, now it's all how they win it again. i am stuck lol , but I love the intellectual part of the NFL and the unbelievable athletism
my brother moved to Baltimore , has season tickets and I go a few times. Believe me they know the pat colors, have been to a few big out door barbecues and they yell at me from afar. All good fun. but no way in a stadium. He rolls his eyes with the jets. if the Pats get to the SB he is going to be a Pat fan for the day lol
finally, for you Rusty, if you haven't guessed, i am a libertarian / conservative. When you make comments about conservatives, I really don't recognize the descriptions you make of them. Oh there some stupid ones for sure but I don't thank God for abortions (Iowa Dem) or draw red lines in the sand. Lol I have a whole political philosophy taking different ideas to try and make sense of how this world would work best. And as I have said before, the Pats are my escape from this at times nasty world. just one thing - I just try to do the right thing every day, and if I fail, try to do the right thing the next time.
have a nice day - I mean it
