Patriots Super Bowl Rallies 2017 and 2018

2017: THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the Foxboro Jaycees Rally for the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Eve, February 4, 2017! Several hundred people braved the frigid air to wish the home team success in the Super Bowl. State officials declared tomorrow is “New England Patriots Day” in Foxboro. Selectmen Chris Mitchell and Jim DeVellis and town manager Bill Keagan read proclamations as well as a letter from Representative Joe Kennedy.

Paul Feeney kept the crowd going with the music, the Elite Dancers and high school cheerleaders performed. Many people had signs or made signs, there was face painting, other activities, and Sparky the fire dog was there as well.

At the end, everyone was invited to gather at the bandstand for a video and the crowd shouted GO PATRIOTS WIN ONE MORE and went wild. That video (below) was edited immediately afterward by Foxboro Cable Access they sent this video greeting to the Patriots that evening so they could see it before playing in the Super Bowl!   Jeremie Smith from the Patriots verified that the team watched the video in Houston Saturday evening! 

Foxboro cable Access covered the entire event and all Boston news stations were all also present, along with reporters from various media including the Foxboro Reporter.

 


… And the next day, the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl in the greatest comeback ever! Congratulations to the Patriots on the 5th Super Bowl Win!


       


2018: One year later, several hundred people again braved the frigid temps (19 degrees!) to cheer the home team! In 2018, we teamed with Foxboro Recreation for a drone image of us on Booth Field, followed by a group picture with Foxborough Fire, and then we marched to the common for the rally! Thank you to Deb Giordano! Once again, Selectman Chris Mitchell declared Sunday February 4, 2018 “New England Patriots Day” in Foxboro. Town manager Bill Keagan and Jaycee Lynda Walsh spoke and cheered on the crowd, and Senator Paul Feeney kept the crowd going with the music! The Elite Dancers and high school cheerleaders performed. Many people had signs or made signs and are own Foxboro G.O.A.T was present!

At the end, everyone was invited to gather at the bandstand for a video and the crowd shouted WE’RE NOT DONE! and went wild. That video was edited immediately afterward by Foxboro Cable Access they sent this video greeting to the Patriots in Minneapolis that evening so they could see it before playing in the Super Bowl!

Foxboro cable Access covered the entire event and all Boston news stations were all also present, along with reporters from various media including the Foxboro Reporter.

… and while 2018 Super Bowl LII did not turn out the way we’d hoped, we’d like to say congratulations to the Eagles on their first Super Bowl championship, and we thank the Patriots for an amazing 2017-2018 season.

… and the adventure continues!
