I've been hanging around with a Patriots fan. I know. Don't tell me. And, give me a break, you can understand how it's possible in summer. But now it's NFL preseason and the regular season is four Sundays away, and the Giants play the Pats at Gillette Stadium on September 3rd. Am I going? ScoreboardGourmet traditionally focuses on MLB while their season is still in progress. This is a tough call, made tougher by the appealing Gillette Stadium Food Concessions Guide (a mega pdf that crashed my computer: beware).
So I asked The Patriots Fan to tell me one thing I should know to make me less of a hater. Without hesitation he said Wes Welker. The Patriots Fan spoke about the lack of size of Wes Welker, then he told me about hundreds of catches, then I spaced out wondering how much fun it will be to watch hours of New England football. I just don't know if I can do it. I don't know if I can even hear about it. I am, however, willing to give it a shot, but only because I know another Patriots fan and we're actually friends. And because the Patriots are the opening Monday Night Football. And also because Gillette Stadium allegedly has 46 permanent F&B concession stands plus 60 portable ones. That sounds like a worthy investigation.
