FanIQ Spotlight Fan of the Week - Employee Edition: Pat

Where do you most like to spend your Q time?
I spend my time in the Best of the Web section, but I'm looking forward to working on the team pages. I think that once we get those rolling, it will give everyone a great way to follow their favorite teams, and personalize the site to emphasize their favorite teams and sports.

Have you made any good friends on the Q?
I've made a few good friends (probably just as many enemies, if not more).

What’s the boldest prediction you’ve ever made, and did it turn out?
Well... I predicted the Patriots would beat the spread BY the spread (i.e. they'd win by at least 28 points) in the Super Bowl against the Giants. Ummm... yeah... that didn't really work out so well.

Locker room:

Superhuman strength, invisibility, time travel, what superpower would you like to have?
Well... I already have superhuman strength, so I guess I'd want time travel.

Name 5 things that you can reach from where you are sitting.
My computer, my La-Z-Boy, my Blackberry, an energy drink and the remote control. That pretty much sums up my life.

You are granted 3 wishes, they all have to be sports related.  What are they?

1) I wish the Patriots would actually go 19-0.
2) I wish the Red Sox would win 20 straight World Series, so Yankees fans can can shove their measly 26 championships where the sun doesn't shine.
3) I wish Boston College could be a legitimate National Championship contender... instead of being a mediocre ACC team every year.
Now leave us with a good one; where do you see the Patriots ending up this season?
I have some serious mixed feelings about this year.  I think the Patriots have a good team, but I have no idea how they could expect to beat the Saints, for example. In hindsight, the Broncos game was encouraging, and I wouldn't be shocked to see the Pats win another Super Bowl, but I'm not banking on it.

Thanks Pat!  It's been great getting to know you a little bit better.

If there is someone that you would like to see spotlighted in our weekly Spotlight Fan of the Week, shoot me a message and let me know.

Have a great weekend!

How did I miss this? We need to find a better system to get these out. Good job Nellie! Thanks for all you do for the Q Pat! Great interview!

I guess we both like Ryan and the Q... so we've got two things in common! Pat's a good guy, very helpful.

I like Pat because I agree with him 50% of the time and the other 50% of the time he is insane.

Well, Pat and I have gone through a series of emotions: hate, disgust, incredulity, then mutual

Pat, Thanks for all you do on this site and helping me with my contributions. Thank you also for your service to this country.

Ben Roethlisberger hates this post more than anyone can possibly imagine.

 Pat is a "True" sports fan. He has a lot of knowledge about sports and can debate with anybody all day and all night. When I first came across Pat in a blog, we were debating about some random sports topic. I started getting mouthy, so he started smacking back...We went at it for like 8 postings when I finally realized he was more than just someone who wanted to argue. Dude knows a lot about teams and players from other cities, and he is always representing the Boston area and teams from Boston. Pat is an easy guy to like because he tells like it is.

It's good having another Masshole on the staff. I am not sure Pat and I agree on everything but I can hope that we both despise Dan Shaughnessy.

Rest assured that at the very least, we agree on that. Shaughnessy sucks.

World Series at Fenway sounds like a pretty good wish to me.  I could go for that.

I enjoy these articles, it's good to learn a lil more about other fans.  Even if they're on the other side of the rivalry.
