Ice Bowl

Well after all the hype the Patriots game wasn't even all that cold. Of course I was wearing more clothes than I ever had before in my life, including a brand new down parka I bought just hours before the game. The game was a great tough battle and the Titans gave it all they had - which of course wasn't enough. The crowd was the most boisterous yet at Gillette and made a ton of noise for some true home field advantage. Even the usually lame club seat folks around us stayed outside for the whole game (Tom Brady even commented on noticing that in his post game press conference). We even had a couple shirtless psychos in our sections. We got to the stadium just after 4pm, and immediately went inside to the clubhouse for some indoor tailgating. Just before kick off there was a surprise mini-concert from BOSTON - they did the National Anthem and Rock & Roll Band.

And just to prove that everything is going our way and we are destined for another Super Bowl appearance. At midnight while about to leave Gillette Stadium I realize my car keys are missing. While I go back outside to our seats just one notch below panic, Lori heads back to where we hung out in the Club before the game and there are my keys just sitting on a table. I'll have to buy a lucky key chain in Houston. Check out photos and mayhem. This was the toughest game the Patriots will have in this playoff run - we always beat the Colts, who we will face next Sunday in the AFC Championship game. WooooHoooo!
