Evening with Pats & Nortons - LOVELY
(photo: Yet one more reason why the Pointy Universe needs to hire a photog.)
One moment you're in your pajamas sharing a yogurt with Paulie, the next you're in the backseat of an Infiniti sipping Sauvignon Blanc on the way to the Patriots' opener. So was the scene that unfolded late yesterday afternoon. Spontaneity is an elusive concept for us these days so for such improbable events to transpire the way they did was no less than shocking. We are indebted to Krissy and Matt for answering the call. And to the fabulous Norton brothers for carting us to and from the game. As we enjoyed a lightning fast tailgate at the Honeydew (aka Mr. Donut) lot, conditions quickly ripened for a sparkly good time..and it was.
Watched Green Day perform "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" which was fantastic and Ozzy Osbourne whose performance was like a presentation on the effects of degenerative disease.
James and I climbed to our seats in the farthest corner of Gillette Stadium and into an alternate universe packed with formidable-looking, belligerent Raiders fans. They turned out to be ok and quieted down considerably watching their team get their shiny silver bums kicked about the field. At half-time, I made my acquaintance with an Italian sausage, hung out with Pete and Apryl, and got creeped out by a back-tickling brother. "Sooo, do you guys like to, you know, party together."
It was halfway through the second half when I found my Cream Shop Friday feature sitting on the seat in the row in front of me.
