    I had faith in you. But please tell me this is a joke?

    It's taken me a little while for me to get on here, things have been a bit hectic recently! I just want to pass on my thanks to all those who organised, you know who you are. From tickets to hotels to tailgate organizers to car renters to contact gatherers to designated drivers. You are what makes these weekends truly special. I had so much fun seeing some old faces and meeting new. The only mark on the trip was Liam Gallagher getting sick! We definitely made up for it though. The Canadian contingent were mostly worse-for-wear on the Monday driving back up north. It definitely isn't as fun coming back than it is going! Anyway, I'm glad to get back to winning ways at Gillette, and already looking forward to my next RT, if the wife will let me out!

    I'm sure Warren will not tell anybody and just "surprise" everyone and turn up....

    I'd prefer to not make the night about me. I'm not really one for attention..... We could just refer to it as the regular Friday night UKPats shenanigans. The Red Hat is a good shout but it's a fair ways a way from the regular spots on Boylston (Whiskeys/Pour House). Happy to follow the crowd. Will have to try sleep in the car on the drive down if we're gonna be out late on the Friday night.

    That's a short stay Van, but will be good to see you again! Have you not just thought of driving to/from NYC? Would probably work out the same time as a flight with the waiting around! Jealous. I'll have to see if I can hit up the C's when they come to Toronto.
  8. Canal Street; 5 minutes away. A bit full ahead of Bruins games. That shouldn't be a hindrance!
  9. Didn't know of the one near the Garden, only been to the one near Fenway. Definitely some find beverages on tap.
  10. That fight ..... Shawn Thornton off the bench taking out Orpik! Well that was a little excessive, but Orpik did deserve something after what he did to Marchy.
  11. The 1pm is really throwing a spanner in the works. I'm not sure what my work situation will be like this year as I just quit my rig job last week. Would normally drive down the Friday but wouldn't get into Boston until 5pm ish. Will need to have a think. What's the deadline, David? Nice memories of playing the Pens at the Garden in 2013! That comeback.....

    Thanks for looking into this as usual Howard, great price for the Hampton Inn!
  13. But you don't have to stay in a hotel the entire time, you can stay at a hostel in Boston to cut costs even more. A bunch of us have spent a night or two at the YMCA on Huntington or 40 Berkeley in the past few years. Probably works out about $30-40 a night each off the top of my head. Then with the UKPats group hotel rate that Howard has been able to get us nearer game day, if you can split the cost by sharing then the hotels work out well!

    Roadtrip 2017 - Poll closed

    I went with the Dolphins. My current work schedule has me working for the Texans game. I hope it clears up in time for November but as is the case each year, I'm up in the air! I'll hopefully be able to get a ticket as normal and hope for the best.

    2017 Road Trip

    Whatever my Air Canada points can get me! Saving for the wedding in 2018 so any game I can attend will be a bonus this year. Paul suggested doing the Lions pre-season week 3, might be an interesting day trip.

    2017 Road Trip

    What you doing there from the 11th to the 26th?
  18. I'd have spent the first three quarters at NRG fretting "I paid $5000 for this?" I was thinking the same thing, but that ending. The last two Super Bowls coming down to the end. Even if I made it to one in the next few years and they won, it will never, ever be better than that.
  19. Would have been great to be with you all in London last night, but even better to be at NRG stadium for that!
  20. Is Warren too hungover after his 4 shandy's and his shot of Fireball?
  21. I feel like every time UKPats plan an event in London there are tube strikes or engineering works

    Meet up for AFCCG Sunday 24th January

    Seen a few pics on Facebook of you all having fun. I met up with Chelseafan (Chris) at his brother in law's where there was a mixture of teams fans (including the 2nd Browns fan I've ever met), props boards, food, drink, and poker. Great night, topped off with a great result. Though I'd much rather have been at the stadium, looked like it was bouncing there!
  23. Any chance of a ticket Mark? Jokes of course.... this will be the 4th consecutive Superbowl, and the 5th time in the last 6 years that I've been on the rig. Next year....
  24. Second that on the Ortiz homer!! Paul's balls were a little too spicy for me this year, I'm ashamed to say I couldn't handle it. Though it might have been because I was feeling a little rough from the night before, I really wasn't ready for that at that time of the morning. Was lucky to have the Sams on hand to cool them off a little. Special mention for the meat after the game (the sausage with cheese, the pork cooked in JD or something, and the steak bites - all just fantastic!). Great trip overall, thoroughly enjoyed it as always. It was great to meet friends both old and new, experience 3 of the 4 Superbowl rings up close, hold a minuteman's (Neil's) musket before taking a selfie with horse! The Pats game was indeed a shame, but that was overshadowed by the great company, great food, the free flowing booze and an epic first game for myself at Fenway. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in organising it.
  25. Don't forget the Red Sox tickets ! Mandy, did they ever make it to yours? Looking forward to this whole weekend, should be great.
