Hi Patriots fans!
With all the sports fans that live in New England, I’m constantly asked how much I know about football or sports in general. Well, I can answer that question for you easily: I love sports!
Ever since I was little you could always find me in the dance studio, on a field or on a court. As I got older, I traded in my cleats and stuck with ballet and tap shoes, but I never lost my interest in or passion for sports. I wanted to be a cheerleader so I could still dance and compete and not miss out on being part of the action at all my school’s sporting events. I've always loved dancing, so being a professional dancer and cheerleader was an easy decision. I have danced for the AFL, XSL, MiLB, NHL, and of course my favorite, the NFL! Cheering and dancing has given me a great opportunity to do what I love while watching my teams play.
In my spare time I am always trying to schedule trips to different sporting venues, and many vacations revolve around game schedules. I have gone to several baseball stadiums and football stadiums across the country. I am not afraid to catch foul balls! I have quite a collection of them from Fenway to AT&T park and so many in between. Although Fenway Park is very charming, I would have to say one of my favorites was Minute Maid Park where they opened up the roof and we got to sit on the field and watch a firework show!
Hockey is another passion of mine. I have seen every team in the NHL play live many times. Unfortunately, I do not have a collection of caught hockey pucks!
Then there’s football. Now in my fourth season with the Patriots, it has become a tradition for a few of my teammates and I to follow the Patriots to Miami to watch that game each season. I may be biased but Gillette Stadium is the best place to be. It is my home away from home. When I think of the year, I don't think of it in terms of months, I think of it in terms of sporting seasons! The calendar year starts in January, but mine starts in September! Let's go PATS!
