bideau, that is a great story. I only wish your Dad could have seen his dream realized....I'm sure he is watching and loving every minute of this.

I became a fan sometime around there first SuperBowl appearance during the 85 season. My Dad has never been a big sports fan, but my Mom sure is. She lives and dies with the Bruins and Red Sox, but was only a casual Football fan.

During the 85 season, I was a paper boy for the patriot ledger and they used to do these promotions for the kids where if you get a certain number of new customers you could go to a Patriots game. My first game was vs the Raiders on 9/29/85. After that i was hooked. The problem was, there weren't many of my friends that were interested in going to games. I got my license during the '87 season and me and this 1 friend of mine would go to at least 2 or 3 games a year. We'd just drive down and buy tickets at the window or from a scalper.

During 1990 (the 1-15 season) I made a down payment on 3 season tickets. Since I was only 18 at the time, I didn't have alot of cash so I wasn't able to actually buy them for the 1991 season. My first official season as a season ticket holder was 1992 and I have only missed 2 games since then. The first was a Miami game during the 96 season where I was in the hospital with a collapsed lung. The second was Bledsoe's first game back as a Bill where me, my wife, and son had all come down with food poisoning the night before.
