Football really started to take off in the UK during the eighties and Superbowl XX was the first Superbowl for me.

I like to support the underdog and as a Brit I simply supported the team with 'England' in their name.....getting blown out 46-10 only made me support the Patriots more and I've been hooked ever since.

Thankfully there have been some good times since then and now I'm a Patriot fan till I die!!

I'm going to the Wembley game in October and cannot wait to see the players in the flesh and hoping to get across to Gillette some time in the next couple of years.

Never was a closet fan.

Saw my first Boston Patriots game at BU Field in 61, at Havard Stadium in 70, Went to a game every other year at Schaefer/whatever.

Stayed with them at 1-15 and 2-14.

This now is all gravy, baby.

I can't give the exact date-ever since I can remember I've been a Patriots fan. My first game in person was at Schaefer Stadium around 1970-I remember it was against the Raiders and George Blanda kicked a FG at the end to win it for the Raiders. I wish I could find the exact date but my Google searches haven't found me the answer-it's possible I don't have the details quite right.

I don't know why I latched on to them so strongly. They were a lousy team and no one in my family was a sports fan of any kind. I guess I just was meant to be one. I loved listening to them on the radio and was very excited when they were on TV-those were the days you rarely if ever saw them play at home because they never sold out. They were always on TV when they were on the road though.

This team has given me more joy and sorrow than just about anything in my life outside of my family. I have a tremendous bond with them that probably isn't normal-but that's the definition of a fanatic-right!:heart:

I was a casual fan when I started paying attention during Parcells' years but didn't really appreciate what was going on. I remember being crushed losing to the Bears in 85, I remember being happy when they won in 86, but I didn't really cherish or appreciate it.

I don't remember exactly when I became a Patriots fan. I know it was around the time they went 1-15. It was the throwback uniforms that first got me hooked. I've always been interested in the American Revolution and this team represented that period.
As a youth, I had either a Patriots hat or a t-shirt. As the years gone by everyone knows that I am a dedicated fan.

NE Patriots...gotta love 'em...

I became a NE Patriots fan in spite of myself. I followed soccer for most of my high school years, but on Sundays, watching NE games (or listening to them on the radio if they were blacked out) was a real family event. My Mom would make dinner early so she wouldn't miss a snap, and we would all be sitting in the livingroom, watching our beloved Patriots while they broke our hearts. They may not have had many wins in those days, but they had grit, and I was hooked. A fan since 1972, I am enjoying the Robert Kraft / Bill Belichick / Tom Brady years very much, and in spite of that loss to Indy in 2006, Tyree's lucky circus catch and spygate...these NE Patriots are a joy to follow. GO PATRIOTS!!!

Became a Pats fan in the 6th grade(12 years old)in 1977.

I took out a Book from the school library on Jim Plunkett, and fell in love with the logo and colors, perhaps also being inspired by Jim`s story, but I honestly can`t remember that part of it.Was a few years ago you know

The colors and name/theme "Patriots" were very close to our local Hockey Team "Rochester Americans".

Allot of my Favorite sports Teams were picked around that same time, Patriots, KC Royals, the Buffalo Sabres a few years earlier as Hockey was my first love, but now the 2 sports are pretty much even.

I have recently ditched the Sabres(wernt really trying to win for a very long time, just trying to make money) as my Favorite and now root for the Blackhawks with the Sabres being second favorite.

So glad I stuck with the Patriots, they have rewarded my loyalty in spades!!

1963

Visited my uncle often who was an NFC guy, but then loved Unitas and Broadway Joe as he called him.

Season ticket holder since 1981. Used to walk to any seats of interest in the stadium and wasted time with the fill ins. Had hoped to at least see Flutie play alot. Hated the decision by Berry to start Tony Eason who had NO respect in the locker room or anywhere else. Loves so many of the special playoff games
in the fog bowl, curtis breaking loose, Manning getting intercepted repeatedly and the SB wins. Lost the first to the Giants due to the strangle on Richard Seymour never called or Manning would have been on his butt versus getting of the pass. Great day with the snowblow good for a few extra hours of suds,
Adam making the kick of a lifetime. And the change from being on the losing end every weekend while those at home had the blackouts. Tuna and Drew was a great turn around. Sad to see Russ Francis and Leon Grey go, and never so sad as watch Daryl Stingley get a cheap hit to cripple him for life.

But few in football have had as much enjoyment as us Pats fans. Bob Kraft is the man.

I'm a relatively recent convert.

I ended up getting into football and the Pats specifically after playing a demo for Madden 06 of all things.

At the time, I didn't know that the Patriots were that successful. I eventually read into the Patriots and although recent success was a plus, knowing that the franchise emphasised being team above all was the major reason that I started following the Pats.

I only really got in to Gridiron last season, I'd have probably got into it sooner if I had been successful in getting a ticket for when the Pats played at Wembley in 09, but alas I didn't.
