Spontaneous fan.

In comments Sherm writes about the Patriots letting him down during his formative years.

I'm not primarily a football person. When I lived in the Bay Area I rooted for the Niners cause they were the exciting local team. And I've always loathed the Raiders.

But, long distance rooting for the Pats, the few times when they did well during that period, was a fun experience to share with my Dad. My Dad is a huge Pats fan.

Now that I'm back here in New England, I am first and foremost a Red Sox fan. Most years I don't get at all involved with football until long after the baseball season is complete.

But it's hard to not get caught up in the regional excitement of watching these Pats over the past few years.

Yes, they really did suck when Sherm was younger.

Wrong link action, by the way. You link to Steve and his beer rather than me and my debaters, who also drank beer.

[UPDATE: I fixed the link -- Jack]
