During the season at home games, Freddie can visit you at your tailgate before the game or in your seats during the game. He charges $100 for his 3-5 minute appearance. 

Pat Patriot is the mascot of the New England Patriots, a NFL franchise based in Foxborough, Massachusetts.  He is depicted as a soldier of the Americanne-patriots Revolution. The logo version of Pat wears a tricorne hat and a Continental Army uniform . He was created by Worcester Telegram -Evening Gazette cartoonist Phil Bissell in 1960. The live mascot, Pat, wears the Patriots’ home uniform (currently navy blue jersey with silver pants). He has represented the Patriots as the team’s mascot in Super Bowls: 36,38,39,42,46, and 49. According to one fan, “Unfortunately, in my humble opinion, the NE Patriots mascot is rather freakish looking when translated into an actual mascot costume.”

Most likely, the readers of this blog post are overwhelmingly Falcon fans. On Sunday, look for  Freddie and Pat on the sidelines and impress your fellow Super Bowl watchers with a little mascot trivia.  Have fun and GO FALCONS and FREDDIE!!
