"One Word: Tom Brady". The actual quote was about Larry Bird, but let's face it, if you're reading this, and you're a Patriots fan in Austin, Texas, with the season fast approaching and the drama being left back seat to actual winning, then I only have one word as to why you should join this meetup right now. What? I already said them :)
This is a meetup made for all the patriots fans in ATX. While I expect all Bostonians/ New Englanders to be here at some point or another, there are also a lot of Patriot fans in Austin from all over! Let's face it, Pats have some haters, but also fans all over the country who love "the Hooded one" and "Do your Job" mentality, without mentioning "Touchdown Tommy" and his piercing baby blues. (see video above)
Being a patriots fan is an agonizing blessing. If we could only stink for a season, then imagine all the lack of stress there would be. No such luck, we always go to the playoffs to make fans bite their nails and have an extra one, or 3, for an extra 3 or 4 weeks every season. My hope in forming this group is not only to meet people to do all of this with together, but to meet Patriots fans who are loyal fans in ATX, but don't realize these waves of suffering that make fanatics out of fans!
