The Pats loss to the Jets still stings. Weve been icing ourselves down its hurt so much. No luck though.
And only the tiniest bit of satisfaction came from seeing New York lose in the AFC Championship game. But a Jets loss meant a Pittsburgh win and rooting for Roethlisberger makes us want to vomit.
It was a loselose.
Anyway, it's taken a week of mourning, but weve compiled ten ideas for what Patriots fans can do to pass the time until the new season starts. Let us know how you plan on spending your newly found free time.
10. Drink yourself silly.
If it worked to get you through that bad breakup in college, it can work for this.
9. Take up a fine crafty hobby. Like scrapbooking.
8. Spend time with your neglected significant other.
Wait You mean you just noticed theyve packed up and moved out? Bummer.
7. Pretend like the game never happened.
Hey, it worked after the Patriots-Giants Super Bowl right?
What do you mean you dont remember that game?
6. Count down the days till pitchers and catchers report.
Baseballs just around the corner. And nothing can help fans forget the pain of the Jets loss like Big Papi trade rumors when he starts the season cold again.
Yea we dont know what this is either
5. Read a book.
Any book. Pick one. Doesnt have to be Wuthering Heights or The Count of Monte Cristo. Here. Well pick one for you.
4. Make fun of Buffalo.
Nothing makes you feel better than realizing there are places and people that have it worse than you like Buffalo.
3. Enjoy the Great Outdoors
2. Boycott the Super Bowl. Watch the Puppy Bowl instead.
Too cute Cant stop watching
1. Jump on the Bruins and Celtics bandwagon
Bruins are second in the East; Celtics are first in the East.
Theyll take your minds off the Pats for a bit.
