“It was awesome.”2.

“When you’re the owner of the team that wins the Super Bowl, that’s a very special moment.
It’s a lot to take in.
I think the people that have come through this building and know me know that.
I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished over the last 10 years.
We’ve had some big moments in our history.”4.
The Super Bowl has been on the mind of Patriots fans for yearsThe Patriots’ Super Bowl rings have been one of the iconic images of the NFL and it has been in the minds of many Patriots fans since they first won Super Bowl XXXIX.

“I love being in the game.
I’ve been in it since I was a kid.
I love the moment, I love seeing my family on the field, I just love watching the game in person.”
It’s something that I always wanted to do.

It feels right.”5.
