the new england invasion was a great trip and special time for many of the old faithful. Scanning the thread it made the game live a little again for me.

Here’s over simplified breakdown of this last weekend. I have found 3 common themes that the New England area natives embrace:

1. they love the colors red and blue [Patriots and Red Sox]
2. they love their Catholic teams [BC, PC], and
3. they love their Gaelic mystique and sports connections [Celtics].

As simple as it sounds those three baseline items found most local fans falling in love with the new California girl on the block... Mary. ;-)

See you in Houston! MJ
