Tonight is the Super Bowl. The New England Patriots play the New York Giants. Hartford is midway between Boston and New York City, so Hartford-area National Football League football fans will be split pretty evenly.
I grew up a dozen miles north of Boston, so my loyalties are obvious. My lucky Patriots shirt is washed. My Patriots banner is hanging outside. My big-screen television is working great. The cupboard and frig are full. Bring it on!! Go Patriots!!!
