DENVER, CO. (WWLP) – This is the place to be: Talking to dozens of Pats fans from across the country and Western Massachusetts, excited for the game!
A showdown between Patriots and Broncos fans on Denver’s famed 16th Street Mall. It was easy to spot Pats fans from Massachusetts: They donned just their team’s sweatshirts: No need for a winter jacket, as they traded New England’s snow for Denver’s 60 degree weather.
And with true New England confidence, they were sure of a Pats victory despite new concerns of injured players. “They’ll be fine. As long as Edelman’s there, I mean last game we had no one and they barely beat us and I think the Pats have it on lockdown. We’ll be partying big time Sunday night,” said John Kincaide of Braintree Mass.
One man from Western Massachusetts said this is the trip of a lifetime. He was able to bring his dad and they fly on the plane with the New England Patriots team out here to Denver. And they’re also staying at the same hotel as them: The Grand Hyatt.
“I said hi to Gronk and he ran right by and said hi.” They’ll be watching the game from a luxury suite.
“We’re actually part of the Patriot entourage for the weekend. And they’ve taken care of us, and they’ve given us all types of garb to wear,” said Tim Collins of Easthampton.
Taylor Best of Topsfield Massachusetts told 22News, “Some just wanted to be part of the excitement! “We don’t have tickets actually but we’re going to go over to the stadium tomorrow and maybe see if we can grab some or just see if we can check it out, check out the stadium.”
Tickets *are* still available for the game, ranging in price from 250 to 6000 dollars.
