I love watching football, IF the Patriots are playing. Last Sunday we had the opportunity not only to go to the game, but, also to be on the field while the teams were warming up. I made sure I had my camera, 2 charged batteries, extra memory cards, and I also brought my 100-400m lens. Unfortunately I dropped it at the security table and it BROKE :(.
We arrived at Gillette Stadium 2 hours early. We wanted to get to the tables close to the windows in the Putnam Club. We figured we could use it as a basecamp to warm up. It snowed on Sunday, was really cold, and all the seats were damp and cold!
The Patriots were played the Broncos. It was an exciting game to watch, lots of action from both teams. We even got to see a trick play that didn’t go very well. Third down and long yardage, the Patriots lined up to punt. Then the whole Special teams ran off the field with the Bronco’s falling in suit. Unfortunately the Offense Line didn’t get back in time to execute the play. It really was a sight to see!
Here are some highlights from the day. The Patriots won 43-21. We had a great time.

great pictures Gail ! Sorry about your lens:(
superb sport photography!!!
Excellent coverage, Gail, with photos showing some scenes unavailable on a normal commercial broadcast. The sadness in regard to your lens I think it was more than compensated by the great game and your happiness to be there. Great job! Thank you! 🙂
Thank you Fabio! The game was great, but, will have to see how expensive the repair is, before I agree with you!
