    Thoughts on RT 2015

    Strangely this really saddens me. I say strangely because I'm still a relative newcomer to this bloody addictive site, and because I hardly know any of you at all (save the handful I met at last years SB party). But I'm well aware people like this exist, and just because the vast majority are great, genuine people, I guess it doesn't make us immune to attracting them. Fully supportive of 'the rules' - the relationship with the Patriots organisation has to take precedence over everything else or there is no RT and ultimately little point in the forum other than having a chat. Moving on, I have my heart set on making a RT. I've seen them at Wembley a couple of times, and visited Gillette and the HOF last summer on a break in Boston. All it did was whet my appetite. When I do make one I think the idea of a pre-match get together is great - but then I'd be one of the noobs. I'd fully understand if the regulars weren't as keen to lose a night though??

    Super Bowl Sunday Pub Crawl

    Thank you for sorting it all out Graham - what a great day it was. Butlers pick in the dying seconds maybe wasn't as clear through my "beer goggles" as it might have otherwise been, but I wouldn't change it for the world!

    UK Patriots 2015 Superbowl Party (FULL)

    Yeah it's my first SB party and have decided to get the first (5:45 am) train back "up north". Means I get back to work for the afternoon, but am already dreading those couple of hours wait in the freezing cold on a belly-full of ale with nothing to keep me warm other than the Pats W ! In future I'll plan better and get a hotel!

    I'm not getting into London until after 1 - engineering works means a replacement bus from Ipswich to Billericay - and I think I'm up to Kentish Town for a late liquid lunch. Anyone fancying a few pints, I'll probably be in the Southampton Arms from around 3:00, then the Grafton, Tapping the Admiral, pitstop at Honest Burgers, Brewdog and finally ending up at the Euston Tap around 7. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/Southampton+Arms,+139+Highgate+Road,+London+NW5+1LE,+United+Kingdom/The+Grafton,+Prince+of+Wales+Road,+London,+United+Kingdom/Tapping+The+Admiral,+Castle+Road,+London,+United+Kingdom/Honest+Burgers,+Camden+Lock+Place,+London,+United+Kingdom/Brewdog+-+Camden,+London,+United+Kingdom/Euston+Tap,+Euston+Road,+London,+United+Kingdom/@51.5418762,-0.1528105,14z/data=!4m38!4m37!1m5!1m1!1s0x48761aff4673e33d:0x296bcb0d6b0395a!2m2!1d-0.146174!2d51.556021!1m5!1m1!1s0x48761afcd3efddfd:0xf93592ce3e1eb475!2m2!1d-0.144486!2d51.546721!1m5!1m1!1s0x48761ae342f8b217:0x32b85b47145b286f!2m2!1d-0.14611!2d51.5453!1m5!1m1!1s0x48761ae3fdcc4f53:0x344a52fd0e83e154!2m2!1d-0.146566!2d51.54136!1m5!1m1!1s0x48761b1fd450350d:0x6a7ebb828a1875d9!2m2!1d-0.14093!2d51.538306!1m5!1m1!1s0x48761b25a3d9eb69:0x4b910f196280de71!2m2!1d-0.132568!2d51.526906!3e2 We get down just after 2 so should be able to make the Southampton for 3 ish if that's still on as a starter?
