Sweet 16

Happy 16th Birthday, Bostonbrat.net!

I can’t believe I’ve kept this site for 16 years. Sure, I think the name is lame as hell but this was the best I could come up with back in ’02. So many things have changed since I launched this website all those years ago:

  • Three presidential administrations (Bush, Obama, Trump)
  • The Patriots have gone to seven more Super Bowls, winning four
  • I’ve watched the Red Sox win three titles, the Celtics and Bruins win one each
  • I’ve had four jobs, finally finding my current career
  • Four boyfriends, too, finally finding the love of my life
  • I’ve visited Disney World six times (2004, 2006, 2012, 2016, 2017, and 2018)
  • In fact, I’ve visited a lot of places: 12 states and two countries
  • In 2002, I had a flip phone. Today, I’d literally die without my iPhone
  • I’ve had five cars, including one that blew up in my school’s parking lot
  • I discovered my favorite hobby, knitting
  • My two nephews were born and I don’t know how I ever lived life without them
  • I lost a ton of weight, gained it all back, lost it again, and gained it all back
  • Watched the rise and fall of Friendster and Myspace, the rise of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

Pfffwww that’s a lot of stuff and I’m sure there’s a lot more I’m forgetting. I don’t know if this site will still be around in another 16 years but we’ll see!

46 Reasons Why I Love The Patriots

My website has been around for ten years (officially tomorrow – Feb. 5, 2002 was the original registration date) and it has seen four Super Bowls now. Back during Super Bowl 38, I devised a list of 38 Reasons why I love the Patriots, which I quickly updated the next year for our third Super Bowl run – a list that you can still find here. I started a “42” list but never got around to finishing it. And when you-know-what happened, the half-finished draft sat in my WordPress queue for years. True story.

Now that the Patriots have finally returned to the Super Bowl, I felt it was time to really update the list… also considering most items from the “39” list no longer apply. I present to you, my new and improved “46 Reasons Why I Love the New England Patriots.” And don’t laugh. I worked very hard on this list.
