Aerosmith is returning to Fenway Park two decades after it "began" hosting concerts. But the park has actually hosted many notable, non-baseball events dating back to the early 1900s, including a memorable music festival in 1973.
The great Fitzy wandered into the Gilette Stadium parking lot this past week to ask tailgating Pats fans on what message they had for Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski as they return to New England this Sunday night. The dynamic duo led the Patriots to glory, so the emotions are running high as our guys, now our enemy, come back to the place where it all happened.
No biggie. Just the biggest regular-season game in the history of the NFL. Tom Brady, who spent 20 years and garnered six Super Bowl rings, comes back to Gillette to face his old team and the coach that many believe was the reason for his departure to become Florida Man. This is epic. Shakespearian. With the entire nation watching.
The NFL released the New England Patriots 2021 schedule this week, so we now know for sure when Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski will be making their return to their old stomping grounds of Gillette Stadium. The Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on our Pats on October 3rd, in a Sunday night prime time matchup. This will be a historic game, and if you want to watch it in person, you better be ready to break the bank.
This is not good. Patriot players are due this week in Foxborough to get their COVID-19 tests and start practicing. But already, it sounds like SIX Patriots have said, "no, thank you,' and are opting out of playing for the season. Presumably because of the threat of getting the disease. Two of these Pats players are big-time stars and starters. Yup, Patrick Chung, and Dont'a Hightower are out.
