Ice fishing in a couple hours. No wind whatsoever in North Central MA so shouldn't be too bad.

ice fishing 2 days with a trip to Foxboro on Sunday sandwiched between them...

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Dress warm and if you get too cold, just imagine Al Gore in a swimsuit and whisper "global warming" over and over until you feel warm...

Seriously though I don't think there is much you can do at Sundays game and not freeze your ass off. one of my best friends and his wife will be there as well. He has bought a bunch of those hand and boot warmers from Job Lot.

It will be a good game! Have a great time! And GO Pats!!!

I've got some seriously warm clothes...and where I grew up sub zero temps were common. I'm more worried about my teenager who just won't get it.

Lots and lots of available tickets (just) listed for today's Patriots game on CL......

Not kidding. .I saw 4 "tents" go airborne. ..I saw another couple scrap the idea then try and make a wind break with a tarp..only to catch it on fire...Nancy prepared our "tailgate" before. We left the house. .we enjoyed it in the comfort of the truck before suiting up to go in...we left midway through the 3rd quarter to get a jump on the drunken idiots..I got tired of having beer spilled on me. .we have optim lounge tickets but at 5' tall I can't see over the crowd(Bruce has paved a path for me in the past )...and watching the TV is best done from the comfort of my own couch.

It was a good time to leave...Nancy admitted on the way back that her feet were getting cold even though she was wearing my muck boots article pro's.
