If you’ve read All He Ever Dreamed, you might recognize this Christmas gift I received from my husband…
It’s hard to read, but the last game played at Foxboro Stadium was the infamous 1/19/02 snow game against the Raiders and we beat them 16-13. And the first game played at the shiny new Gilette Stadium was on 9/9/02 and we beat the Steelers 30-14.
It hangs in my living room with another Christmas gift from my husband—a signed across his thighs photo of Adam Vinatieri taken in the seconds after he kicked the Super Bowl-winning field goal on 2/3/02. It was our first championship. I might have cried.
Speaking of Gilette, I got to see it for the first time on Sunday. It was like a trip to Graceland and Disney all in one…and it wasn’t even open.
Someday I’m going to see the inside.
