Even tho I emigrated in 2000 I never got into American Football until I actually went to my 1st game in 2005. From that day forward I was hooked, I have barely missed a home game since, even planning Holidays around our schedule.
Gillette Stadium holds 67,000 fans and is about 55 miles from our house, depending on traffic it can take anywhere from 1-2 hours to get there. The season is 16 games, 8 home and 8 away. The season is September thru January with the Super Bowl in February, it gets us thru the New England Winters.
Thankfully my husband is also a big fan ( same team thank god ) so we enjoy our Football Sunday's. I am so fortunate to be going to my 3rd Super Bowl, 2007, 2014 and now 2016. I am also fortunate to support a very good team, so looking forward to a great game in Houston on February 5th and a Patriots victory.
