My New England Patriot's Connection
My Patriot's Connection
I have been a true blue New England Patriot fan, in fact I loved them when they were The Boston Patriots.
When I was in high school I played football at Saint Thomas Aquinas, Dover, NH. I was practicing against two upper classmen. My helmet crack and I was put in the hospital. Just an accident.
One of those upper classmen was Steve Corbett. He went on to go to Boston College, All American and was the first draft pick for the Boston Patriots in 1974!
He never became a star because of an injury during practice. I felt so sorry for him. He is good person and taught me weight training. (And he would have gotten me tickets if I asked.)
So that was my connection to the New England Patriots.
