Have you ever been to a American Football game? I went to one last month. As you probably guessed, it’s me, “Nugget”, on the left. (You might remember me from The Mathlete Show – Comparing Quarterbacks.)
Well, this was actually the Houston Texans against the New England Patriots playoff game, on January 13, 2013, at Gillette Stadium.
This was a good game because both the Texans and the Patriots were 12-4 in this season. We got there kind of early, so it wasn’t that packed, so we could easily see them warming up.
Right before the game starts, in a playoff game, the home team runs out of a big inflatable helmet or their symbol, between giant sparklers.
Don’t you think it would be cool to be a professional sports player? I do, because I think playing sports is extremely fun!
From where we were sitting, this was what the view looked like. So, we had pretty good seats.
You would think that our flat screen tv’s are big, but they’re nothing compared to these:
The fans were going wild! It seemed like it was impossible that it would be even a little quiet.
It was good that the the score ended 41-28 for the Patriots!
Did you know that the win was Tom Brady’s 17th postseason victory? That is one more than Joe Montana, making Brady the winningest player in NFL playoff history!
Of course, there was a ton of cheering when the Pats scored, but there was also a lot of cheering when they got an interception, because it doesn’t happen often.
“Wow.” I thought before I went to sleep, “WOW!”
