Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Steve,<br /><br />As a diehard Steelers fans since birth any team that threatens the legacy of the 70's becomes the enemy. Dare I say that I hate the Pats* more than the Browns?

Posted By: <b>Steve</b><p> John, You've had your share of Winners in all the sports. Spread the joy around... Ever since being a little kid the Boston Patriots (Yep, they played in Fenway) have always been the dark horse. Heck, we were NEVER even worthy of a league rival nor had a great team since the Boston Skins moved down to DC.<br /><br /> Finally, in my twilight years, they have hit stride. Even though not nearly as long as the Sox drought, nothing's gonna stop us from enjoying this sweet payoff. (Incidentally, I was a huge Franco Harris fan back around '72-'74, the imaculate reception <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>... Oh, Pats were in last place at the time.)<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1200766269.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>Hey Steve,<br /><br />I lived in Boston (went to grad school at Northeastern)and was always amazed at how easy it was to walk into Fenway and get tickets for Sox games. I would often pick up a pair of bleacher tickets for $12-$15 and move into the reserved seats after the 5th inning. I am assuming it is not that easy to get tickets anymore.<br /><br />Regarding the Pats, I tried to be a good temporary resident and pull for them but after we beat you guys 7-6 in the '97 playoffs my life became hell for a while. Obviously the defeats at home in '01 and '04 AFC Championship games did not help. I was pulling so hard for you guys to beat the Broncos in '05 because I wanted to knock you off at home in the AFC Championship that year.<br /><br />I am only old enough (born in '71) to remember the SB XIII and XIV. The community were I grew up in Eastern Ohio is only about 45 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. Football is king there, everything else is secondary.<br />My son is also named John. My wife and I had a difficult time selecting a middle name so I lobbied for Arthur since the Steelers had just won their fifth shortly before his birth. My wife had a great grandfather named Arthur which helped to justify the selection to her family. My family was thrilled that the boy's middle name was after the founder of the Steelers.<br /><br />Anyhow, your plea did not change my rooting interests but it makes me feel a little better to know that there is at leat one fan in NE that has been cheering for the Pats longer than the last seven years. Best,<br /><br />John <br /><br />
