hottub Posted February 4, 2004 Report Share Posted February 4, 2004 Guys,Today in Boston they held a parade and rally for the New England Patriots. I didn't go, or see it live - I had a meeting - but I just saw the television rebroadcast. It was incredible. According to the Boston Globe, 1.5 million people showed up! Everything downtown must have come to a complete standstill. People started showing up at 8 am, and the team didn't arrive until like 1:30 pm. And the city didn't put out any portible toilets or anything. Nevertheless, everybody was amazingly happy - thrilled, even overjoyed! It was just unbelievable.I write this not to brag - especially since this isn't my team - but to share. Somebody ought to get a tape of that celebration, tie Mike Brown into a chair, and make him watch it over and over. I truly believe that Bob Kraft, owner of the Patriots, will do anything he can to win again, and a big part of the reason is the celebration he received in 2002 and now today. How else can you make 1.5 million people (at least) absolutely love you?Here is a link to a story about the celebration. There are probably lots of articles - I just grabbed the first one to come up in google. This one mentions Bill Bellichick's attempt at dancing - one of the funniest things I've seen in months!
