Tailgate Time!!!!!!!!!!

Are you ready for "Some Football?"

It is time for a party gang. We are throwing a Patriots Tailgate Party November 11th for the Buffalo Bills game. It will be held at one of our members place in East Jeddore. We are hoping to have a big turnout for this event.

We are the largest Registered Patriots Fan Club in Canada. We will be featured on the official Patriots Website pre-game tailgate party broadcast. It should be a blast.

So get ready to meet some new and old friends! Just like the real thing, it is rain, shine, snow, or anything else for that matter. The game will be viewed indoors however. Parking lot opens three hours before the game so bring your grills, food, and beer to have the time of your life. We are really looking to meet some of our new members.

We ask that you let us know if you can attend as an RSVP so we can prepare properly. You can use the web site to email to let us know. Hope to see you all there!!!!!!!

Go West Young Men!

Well it is off to the west coast and a visit to what is arguably the loudest stadium in the NFL. Add to the mix they have one of the toughest defenses in the league and you know we will be in a ballgame. It is always tough to cross country and play football, but it is even tougher in this environment. The Pats are only 3.5 point favorites going into the game which should tell you all you need to know. That's like saying they are equal. Another challenge is that this is a team that we are not that familiar with so it makes it harder to prepare. The Seahawks have the largest core of defensive backs in the league averaging 6"1" and 215 pounds. This will be the ultimate test for our passing game. This is the week we need that big running game. I believe it will be the key to victory. That along with a big pass rush by Chandler Jones against the rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. It is shaping up for a great game. Enjoy! 

A Tribute to a Great Patriot

It has been 13 years since Kevin Faulk stepped onto the football field for the New England Patriots and what a thirteen years it has been. Drafted in the second round, (46th overall) from LSU, Kevin came out as the starter until injuring his ankle. After that he had a stellar career as a Patriot. He was out of the same mold as Troy Brown. A selfless team player, he always put team first and did whatever it took to win. When you look up "A Belichick Guy" in Webster's his picture is right there! He rushed for 3,607 yards and caught 431 passes for 3,698 yards. While those are great stat's it is more about the big plays. Whenever we needed a big play on third down Kevin always delivered. Bill stated "No matter what he was asked to do, nobody did it better than Kevin. He always put the team first, he always worked hard. Nobody contributed more to the team winning than Kevin. He was the ultimate team player." Mr. Kraft added, "Kevin Faulk helped define the way and entire generation of Patriots fans have come to view and appreciated our brand of football. He worked so hard to get better every year. He was always one of the first to arrive in the building and amount the last to leave." As a Patriots Fan it has been an honour to see him perform over these past thirteen years. While he will be missed on the field, his presence will be felt with the development of Stevan Ridley and Brandon Bolden will be felt for years to come. Make no mistake his mentoring on these two and how they have performed this year. Congratulations on a great career Kevin! Enjoy retirement, you have earned it. See you at the hall in four years.

Robert Kraft Nominated for NFL Hall of Fame Class of 2013

Congratulations to Mr. Robert Kraft on his nomination for the NFL Hall of Fame in the "Contributor to the Game" category. If ever there was someone who so deserves this nomination it would be Mr. Kraft. As New England Patriots fans we are blessed to have the greatest owner in the game today. As a fan since the 60's it is hard to believe. We are spoiled by this team and this organization so much so I feel as though we  take them for granted at times. I want all of you to join me in wishing him all the best with the nomination.

As well I felt the need to use a picture with Mr. Kraft and his lovely wife Myra as she has played such a significant role in his life. I know she is smiling down on Robert every day.

Here Comes Peyton !!!!!

Let the hype begin!! What Patriots fan wasn't looking forward to this matchup after the free agent signing. I know I was. Can't wait till Sunday. I must admit, he looks strange in orange though. He has been up and down over the first four weeks but anyting Brady and Peyton take the field you know it's going to be a great contest. The two of them are coming of 3 TD passing games and combined 700 yards through the air. You know CBS is grining from ear to ear for this 4:15 game.  

Its Draft Time 2012

 

 

 Patriots make an impact on day one. Welcome Chandler Jones and Dont'a Hightower!

Thank you Pats

Well gang what another memorable season. I hope you all appreciated it as much as we did. There were so many stories this year starting with the dedication to Myra Kraft with the team wearing the MHK over their hearts. While the Super Bowl was a disappointment how lucky were we to be there? As the season went on our optimism grew, but if you really think about it when we were 5-3 how many of us really thought they would get there. Call me the ultimate optimist, but I for one found this season one of the more memorable. From Tommy throwing for over 5,000 yards, to Gronk smashing the TE touchdown catches and yards gained it was fantastic. Can you imagine Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater carrying the torch for Troy Brown by playing significant roles in the defensive backfield? To Tommy and Bill setting the all time record for a coach/quarterback team.

 

To our year of volunteerism for Myra in which so many communities were helped and volunteers recognized and appreciated. WOW! We have a lot to be proud of, being Patriots fans.

 

For me being a fan since the late 60’s I have an even greater appreciation for what we have. For you new fans that have never been a part of our dark and disappointing roots, don’t forget, what we have is special. I would suggest you become a bit of a historian and look back at our past. As well, look at the other 31 teams and look at their success and in some cases lack of. I think you will find that we are pretty lucky.

 

Never take for granted the team we have and never let the feeling of disappointment over a Super Bowl loss become disappointment in the organization and the team! Also, to those of you, whose nose may have gotten out of joint when Gisele came to her husband’s side and the players who partied into the night after the loss, loosen up,!!! Unless you are not human, they earned that right!

 

In closing, a big thank you to Mr. Kraft and his family for 18 years of the greatest ownership in professional sports! May we be so lucky to have them at the helm forever! Their leadership and guidance since taking over this team is to be applauded. As a person that focuses on leadership in the business world, I look forward to Mr. Kraft’s book on leadership whenever he writes it. (hint, hint Mr. Kraft)

 

So don’t despair as in all sports there is always next year and I for one enter the thought of it with all the enthusiasm in the world. Have a great off season even though there isn’t one.

 

Cheers,

 

Paul & Shelly
