I went to my first Patriots game Sunday. I’ve lived in Boston for nine years, though not consecutively. I went to college here, worked here twice, I’ve covered numerous Patriots-based stories but this was my very first game. And it was awesome!
Not only did the Patriots beat the Colts but a friend of hubby’s got us pre-game field passes. There was Tom Brady up close, that one was obvious. But I also got to see my favorite player, Patrick Chung, told Deion Branch I was a huge fan as he ran by, watched Peyton Manning drill balls into the hands of his receiver, and was asked if I was part of the Kraft family because we were in Robert Kraft’s area on the field (We were quickly told to move on!).
What made the experience even more enjoyable… I was thoroughly prepared for my first Patriots game at Gillette Stadium due to all the fabulously nice tweeps on Twitter. Here are some of the suggestions, many of which are brilliant! Thanks!!!
@susantran OH I almost forgot, bring some cough drops for right after the game, or you might be a little hoarse from all the screaming later
@susantran Oh and snacks too LOL!
@susantran bring one of those little stadium butt pads. Those seats are uncomfortable.
@susantran LOL some inventive suggestions there. Average wardrobe for Pats game: Jacket, Gloves, Warm hat, lap blanket and Hot Cocoa.
@susantran are you able to go to CBS Scene. Or do you have to stick with NBC affiliated restaurants
@susantran Don’t forget your flask. Dr. McGillicuddy’s Mentholmint does the trick.
@susantran a Philadelphia Eagles jacket.
@susantran Must bring invite to luxury or owners box. It’s cold out there. My wife loved the Bass Pro Shop though. Seriously crazy.
@susantran dress like your going skiing no sun at 415 start
@susantran it’s going to be cold, get those hand warmers to put in your gloves and boots. Park in P-2 and Fried Dough at Halftime is my Fav
@susantran I went to 1 game when I was a kid. Bring a warm jacket (depending on weather). Sneak in snacks if prices are high. lol
