The New England Patriots will today seek their third Lombardi Trophy in four years and their second consecutive title. From all of us here at Causeway Crowd we’d like to extend our best wishes to the Patriots.

Boston sports are in a very healthy place. The Celtics are on top of the Eastern Conference in the NBA, the Patriots are competing for another Super Bowl today and of course the Boston Bruins are sitting pretty, second in the Atlantic Division.

Brady’s Eight Appearance

Today marks Tom Brady’s eight Super Bowl appearance, no other player in the history of the NFL.  To put that into perspective, Brady will have had more Super Bowl appearances than the entire Philadelphia Eagles roster.


There are a ton of fascinating statistics in the buildup to the game, we’ll leave you with just a few. Tom Brady can become the oldest quarterback in history to win a Super Bowl. Eclipsing legendary Payton Manning’s feat just two years ago.

Pats Opt for White

Although the home team, the Patriots have opted for their white uniforms today. One for the superstitious out there as the Pats are 3-0 when playing in white at a Super Bowl.

Why on earth is a Bruins site writing about the New England Patriots?

Fair enough. The Patriots are a fundamental part of Boston sports. And let’s be honest, it’s a respect thing. I can’t help but look at what the Patriots are doing and the buzz that surrounds them and think of the Bruins doing something similar.

It’s always a spectacle to watch the Super Bowl even if you’re not a fan of the NFL or the Patriots. If you watch nothing but hockey and the ‘Greatest Show on Turf’ can’t excite you, then think of it this way. It’s that step closer to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
