I've mentioned this before, but I guess I could throw it in this thread too.

January 1986. I loathed the friggin Bears. McMahon was an arrogant jerk. The Super Bowl shuffle was played every friggin 15 minutes on every friggin radio station. I was so friggin sick of the Bears. So naturally I rooted for the Pats. And man did I get crap from all my friends after the SB. :(

Up till that time I really didn't have an NFL team. I was addicted to baseball, but really hadn't gotten into FB yet. Dad was/is a Vikes fan, but I was never got into them much. In the 70s, my first favorite FB player was Roger Staubach, but I never liked the Boys as a team. So following SB XX I kind of stuck with the Pats. Unfortunately, as Anni can attest to, it was very difficult to follow the Pats, out this way, before the internet and NFL Sunday Ticket. But I had the FB bug by that time, and since I couldn't catch any Pats games, or find any of their merchandise, I simply followed them in the boxscores and what little ESPN had on them and started following the Niners.

In 97 I finally got internet which made it sooooo much easier to follow the Pats, since I could check out their website, and I could read the Globe and Herald. So starting in 97 I started following them religiously.

And yes, I still do follow the Niners, which I can pretty much do without it interferring with my loyalty to the Pats, seeing as how the teams only play each other every 4 yrs now. But when they do play each other, like last year, I root for the Pats to win, but for the Niners to at least look good losing. :p
