That Upcoming Football Game 2015

So, I hear there is a big football game coming up (wink, wink).

Football was never a popular sport in my house. We didn't follow any particular team or own any items sporting a particular team logo. But I just discovered that Knitting Daily editor Kathleen Cubley is a big Seattle Seahawks fan. And in true knitting versus crochet fashion, I decided that must make me a New England Patriots fan. Right?

You have to have fun with the knitters vs. crocheters stereotype when you can. As a newly minted Patriots fan, I needed to learn a few fact about them. Here is what I found.

New England Patriots Facts

  • We play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Massachusetts but a lot of people spell it Foxboro.
  • Tom Brady is the quarterback, and he is married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
  • Bill Belichick is the coach.
  • We've won 3 superbowls together. This will be our 4th.
  • Rob Gronkowski is fantastic! We call him GRONK. He plays tight end. He is HUGE 6'6" but is really agile.
  • Deflategate. People are saying we cheated, we didn't.

In the spirit of friendly competition, I'd like to challenge Kathleen Cubley. If her Seattle Seahawks win, I'll crochet her a hat in their colors, but if the New England Patriots win, she'll have to knit me a hat in blue, red, and white.

Share your New England Patriot's facts to help me learn more, and let us know which team you will be supporting! Then visit the gallery and post pictures of your team inspired projects.

Best wishes,
