In February, a young Patriots fan in Maryland was tasked with picking someone to research and present about for Black History Month, and Joseph Drumwright knew exactly who he wanted to learn more about - 杰森·麦科尔蒂。
Joseph's project was thoroughly researched, and according to his dad, presenting to his class was a nerve-gracking experience, but he crushed it. And he caught the attention of the McCourtys.
Dejah also got a tour of the stadium, an up-close look at the Lombardi trophies, and a meeting with Robert Kraft.
When Dont'a Hightower re-signed with the Patriots in 2017, Patriots Nation wasn't alone in their excitement. Hightower posted a video to Instagram of his mother, L'Tanya, dancing around her kitchen at the news.
While we're talking McCourtys, this moment when Jason realizes he isn't going to the Super Bowl because of Devin is gold.
Those weren't the only family moment to come out of Super Bowl LIII. When Coach Ivan Fears found out his daughter, Kim, tweets about his hilarious dad moments at home, he was a good sport.
Watching him read Kim's tweets out loud is guaranteed to make you laugh.
By now, the story of the dent in the Patriots sixth Lombardi trophy is well known, but it is still one of the most hilarious pieces of team history. Yes, Rob Gronkowski bunted a baseball thrown by Julian Edelman with the trophy. Yes, it left a baseball-sized dent on the back of the football, and no, it never gets old.
In the days following the bunt heard around New England, Gronk's teammates recalled what happened in an oral history of the moment.
Every year, a new group of draft picks is welcomed to New England, and the reactions when they realize they have been drafted by the Patriots, that their NFL dreams are coming true, never gets old.
Last year's rookie class was no exception. Watching N'Keal Harry Jake Bailey, Chase Winovich, Joejuan Williams, and Hjalte Froholdt become Patriots will surely give you chills.
When the Patriots kicked off the 2019 season, there was a new employee at Gillette Stadium that got a lot of attention, and rightfully so. Boyd, a border collie-husky mix, joined the Patriots field crew when his human, Ryan Bjorn, was hired as the new field superintendent. Every day, Boyd does his job of clearing the field of geese, and we can confirm.
He is, in fact, a good boy.
Matthew Slater's reputation on the field as a special teams pro is only outshined by his reputation off the field as a great guy. During training camp in 2018, a young Patriots fan's dream was to meet her idol, Slater.
With a sign and t-shirt to match, Samantha Duva Ronci's dream became reality, and it was an unforgettable moment for both her family and for Slater.
While Slater was able to surprise a fan in 2018, a year later a fan was able to return the surprise for Slater.
Wes Hogan is a Patriots super fan, and he set out to collect Patriots jerseys, one through 99. He completed his collection in the fall. Once he was done, he decided he would give them away, and he wanted to start with Slater.
In an NFL auction, Hogan bought Slater's 2014 Pro Bowl jersey, and last fall, Slater saw that Pro Bowl jersey for the first time in five years.
With back-to-back Slater stories, we couldn't resist a chance to bring back on of our favorite Slater moments to cap this off.
As the kid of a Pro Football Hall of Famer, Slater was interviewed and asked what his favorite part about attending football games was, and well, you can hear his adorable answer for yourself.
Actually, here's one more for the road.
