If you’re a Patriots fan the season starts today.   It’s a uniquely New England phenomenon.  Every year we know we’re going to be in the playoffs.   Every year it’s Superbowl or bust.  Anything less than hoisting the Lombardi Trophy is a wasted season.  We’re the ONLY team in the NFL like that.  It’s beautiful and tortuous all at once, but I’d have it no other way.    Mission New Orleans begins today at 4:30.   LET’S GO!
