to the THE RAZOR'S EDGE TAILGATE! Once again, it looks like
another season of Tailgate Roulette due to the construction of
Patriot Place and the continuing changes
of the property surrounding the staduim. Our intent is to
remain at our location along the pedestrian walkway where we've been set up for
the past couple of seasons, however it is considerably smaller this year. (The
lot, accessible from Entrance P2 is now called Lot 3. See below for details.)
Although the sites may change, our philosophy and open door (ok...tent) policy
remains the same. Our merry band of Patriot faithful include a group of
"regulars" but we always welcome the company of fellow Patriot fans (and those of
opposition as well). Generally, people show up with their gear and food
but we welcome anyone to stop in and join us with or without supplies and
rations. There is always plenty to go around and for those that insist on
contributing "something" we have set up a donation bin for Charity. 100% of the
money collected this year will be donated to the
Tedy's Team See below for more info.
Tailgate crew 09/09/02 Inaugural Game at
As all hard core
Pats fans know, Patriot Sundays are not just about the game; rather the entire
experience of the event! So, the pre-game and post-game tailgates are an
important component in the success of a Full Tilt Full Time Pats Experience.
Al and I tailgate with Zip
and crew each week and partake in all of the rituals that it
Of course, the company is a lock, the Bruschi Brew is a given, Monty's post game
steak tips are always welcome (and according to some, so is my cold
weather chili and warm weather linguini and clams....) We arrive early and
stay late; partake in the merriment, consume far too much food and drink ... (hmmmmm....
do Jello shots qualify as a food or a drink??), share Pats talk and camaraderie.
Naturally, being the social butterfly that I am, I flit from place to place
nary a closed jaw.... Al mans the grill whilst I provide the "hot air" on
a cold day and catch up with all my buds, scoring hugs along the way.... At this
point, my shy guy has joined forces with the regulars and he and Monty can often
be seen indulging in the weekly flavor of premium cee-gars. (I'll stick
with sampling the latest microbrew, thank you very much!)
The outcome of the game is never a guarantee, although if you ask Zip or Karen,
a Pats win is always predicted! But, one thing is for certain, regardless
of the score we all leave Foxboro having enjoyed the most excellent company and
companionship of friends.... something that cannot be dampened even by a Pats
loss (which doesn't happen often! Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Directions To Entrance P2
Now called LOT 3 (2007)
From the North:
(If you get there too early they
may not have the cones set up yet to allow traffic to travel "on the wrong
side of the road" to get into the lot. If so, you'll need to go past the
entrance, do a U-Turn on Rt. 1 and enter from the South.)
From the South:
Rt.1 North past the stadium and enter P2 on your right.
Lot: As of 2007 is not called LOT3 (formally called Explorer Lot)
Our goal is to set up along
the grass at the pedestrian walkway between Lots 3 and 4.

Look for our
tailgate setup which looks like this:
If they don't let us set up along the
grass, look within the first few rows since we're early birds and
will be close to the front of the lot.
Best bet... drop me an email and I'll
give you my cell phone so that we may hook up :-)
Our core group meets off site to insure
that we arrive together and have enough space to set up the tents.
We are back to meeting up at the Dunkin
Donuts on Rt. 1 NORTH of the stadium 1/2 hour prior to the
scheduled lot opening.
The Razorís Edge Tailgate has selected Tedyís Team
as their Charity of choice once again for the 2007 Tailgate Season.
This year we are choosing, as we did last year, to join our efforts towards
Tedy Bruschi's Charity, Tedy's Team, in our Game Day Collections. After his
stroke and recovery efforts, Tedy dedicated his philanthropic efforts
towards joining forces with the American Stroke Association. Strokes are
the leading cause of disability and third leading cause of death in the
United States. There are innumerable worthy charities and we cannot
reasonably aid them all but we believe we have selected a worthy option and
ultimately hope that by doing what we enjoy, tailgating for Patriots
game-day, we are able to bring about a little help to one worthy cause.
I have spoken with the Charity Director and they are
glad for any of our efforts and exceedingly supportive of our Full Tilt -
Full Time crew. Please feel free to review the considerable information on
their Website at:
Tedyís Team focuses on organizing two charity runs a
year (the Boston Marathon and the Falmouth Classic), and all of the
donations are sent to support the American Stroke Association. All of our
donations will go directly to the American Stroke Association through Tedyís
As always our Tailgate remains an open place of
welcome, hospitality, revelry and Patriotic Fervor. There is always food,
beverage and friendship to be shared by the many guests and members of the
Razor's Edge. The Donation bin is always present and while we do urge you
to consider that as a method of appreciation for the offerings, it is by no
means a requirement. Hopefully we can exceed all past efforts on all
fronts. Please do share the knowledge of the charity with the friends you
bring to us and if you ever have trouble finding it please do ask as we try
to ensure it is very visible but as the tailgate ranks swell on occasion
this can be challenging.
Thank you as always, and now, letís get ready for
