Many Mainers Make Way to Foxborough for Sunday’s Patriots Game

Updated 1 year ago

Tough day for Patriots fans.Many Mainers made their way to Foxborough for Sunday night’s game, which ended in disappointment, the Ravens winning 28-13. For one group from Livermore, it’s a family affair that spans three generations. Patriots tickets are always the hottest ticket in town, especially Sunday, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.That makes this family trip to Foxborough that much more exciting for the Bolduc family, as three generations made their way from Livermore to Foxborough.”I still can’t believe I am going,” said Issac Bolduc before the game. “I was sitting at home, and said I want to go an AFC Championship game. So this is what is going to happen. We are going to do it.”It is the ultimate family road trip for Alfred Bolduc, his son Issac, and his granddaughter Brooke.All three are all lifelong Patriots fans, but only Issac had been to a game in person. He landed tickets late last week, much to the surprise of his daughter.”I found out on Thursday night when they came in, and he is like ‘I have got something in the email for you,’ and he pulls it out, and I lost it. I shrieked.”Even though he lived many years down south, Alfred continued to show his allegiance to the Patriots, and now he finally gets to be around fellow Patriots fans. “I have been in Virginia for 20 years, so I have been fighting with all those Redskins fans, Dallas fans for all these years, and I always have been a Patriots fan. So this one here, I am not going to give it up. I am going to do it this year.”Issac says he is excited to be going with his dad and daughter, though they have all watched many games together in their living room, he says he has been telling them it is nothing like the atmosphere of being there live. “It is a good time. The sights, the sounds, the feeling when the crowd roars, it almost shakes the whole stadium. It makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.”Bltimore is back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2001, when the Ravens won it.
