Proud New Englander


Super Bowl LI, played by The New England Patriots and The Atlanta Falcons was one of the most exciting football games I have ever witnessed. I think I can speak for everyone and say what a game.

I may be a little biased but what an incredible, history-making win from the best coach and football quarterback duo around, Bill Belichick and the man, the myth, the legend himself; The G.O.A.T., Tom Brady.

The Falcons came in strong with their defense in the first half of the game. By the second quarter, the score stood still at Atlanta 21, New England 3 as Lady Gaga took the stage for her Super Bowl halftime performance (which was amazing).

Since the game has now ended, many New England fans (like myself) have admitted with great guilt that the light of hopefulness was dimmed ever so slightly by this point. Although, we still remained hopeful. We can’t speak for Mark Wahlberg, who was seen leaving the game early; later citing that his son had gotten sick.

The Falcons were still coming in hot by third quarter but the New England Patriots showed us why you should never give up and always have faith. By the third quarter, it seemed as if the Falcons had this one in the bag with its owner already on the field waiting to celebrate but the game wasn’t over for The New England Patriots.

If the headlines are correct, it is said that the Patriots made their wild comeback in 114 seconds. They needed both a touchdown and a 2 point conversion and that is exactly what they did; which, ultimately tied the game. It took the Atlanta Falcons, 3 quarters to get 28 points. It took the New England Patriots, 12 minutes to get 28 points. This resulted with the first overtime in Super Bowl history.

Win or lose, the New England Patriots has my heart but this win was so sweet.

Naturally, I had to go to the parade. Considering, I couldn’t attend 2 years ago due to school obligations; I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Even though, I felt like I almost reached frostbite potential and got snowed on for hours before the duck boats came, I would do it all over again.

Come on, I got to see Tom Brady in the flesh!!!!

There were so many people, 1 million to be exact and it was a madhouse but I loved every bit of it. Gah, I love football.

That day was awesome and I’m still buzzing.

Is it August yet?

P.S. don’t kill me if you’re reading this and I got some technical terms or information wrong, I’m still learning.

It’s a snow day today, I’m going to go watch some more Friends on Netflix now.
