America's most-watched sporting event of the year takes place later today as the New England Patriots take on the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. It's a rematch of the Super Bowl from 2008 when the Giants defeated the Pats to ruin their run at a perfect 19-0 season. As a Buffalo Bills fan for over 25 years, and despite what happened in Super Bowl XXV, I'll be rooting hard for the Giants to destroy the hated Patriots. New England shares the same division with the Bills, plays them twice a year, and has dominated Buffalo for most of the past decade. (Who hasn't dominated the Bills for the past decade?) I despise Tom Brady. I loathe Bill Belichick. I detest Robert Kraft. GO GIANTS!!
WBCN was a Rock station in Boston, Massachusetts for over 40 years and the flagship station of the New England Patriots Radio Network (now at WBZ-FM.) Prior to 1968, they were an Easy Listening station and before that had a Classical format (their call letters stood for (W)Boston Concert Network.) WBCN lives on as a digital-only HD-2 station. Their old frequency is now Hot Adult Contemporary WBMX "Hot 104.1"
I found this decal at the post office where I work. It was stuck to the back of a reusable rolling mail container which had obviously been in the Boston area at one point. So I pulled it off and stuck it to some thin poster board and added one more sticker to the collection.
WFAN is a Sports station in New York City and the flagship of the New York Giants Radio Network. WFAN became the world's first 24 hour all-sports station in 1987 when they were located at 1050 AM. After moving to 660 AM and with the addition of Don Imus in morning drive, the ratings for WFAN jumped considerably. They were the number one billing station in the US in the 1990s and the model for sports stations across the country.
