Razor's edge
Geoff Campbell

"We're Patriot musketmen. After 9/11 we started using paper cartridges and we pick them up so the bomb squad dogs don't go nuts. Other teams come here and they are out of their element. My favorite memory is Adam Vinatieri's kick going through the goalposts and right over my head. The fans are everything. You can't not like them. The management is far more conscious of behavior and they pay more attention to the fans. It's a lot better than the old stadium. There used to be six of us, now we have 20. Fans are better behaved. Except for the World Cup soccer. When the United States played El Salvador, we fired our muskets when the USA scored and the El Salvador fans tried to pour beer on us."
