Are you Patriotic?

Well The Mr is. And having learnt very early in the relationship just how much he 'lurrvees' Futbaal, I crossed over too :)

Saturday was D-Day. The first Playoff between Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots. Inspite of the freezing 20 deg F temperature, Gillette Stadium was brimming with fans, jumping and screaming for Brady's boys (Jumping to keep themselves warm I guess).

Though a late convert I did my best to transform our home into a mock stadium by making a Red & Blue (Official colours of the team) poster which did move The Mr to promise me a box of chocolates :D But then I wanted to do more so dressed in blue & red too :) That did have the desired effect as we won 28- 3.

My favorite moment was ofcourse when Asante Samuel intercepted A jaguar pass and ran with it for a touchdown. A long 73 yard run. And we celebrated the victory with rotis and a lip-smacking spicy Mushroom gravy which had The Mr in tears :)

Like they say here in New England,
"My wife said it's either her or Football. Gosh I will miss her lots"
