FOXBORO, MASS. (WHDH) — From breakfast tacos to rack of lamb, there was no shortage of options on the menu outside of Gillette Stadium on Sunday.
“I fished them myself from Port Judith, Rhode Island,” said Patriots fan Peter Brodeur, showing off his haul of dozens of lobsters he gave out to friends.
“We didn’t know each other before we started coming to football games and that’s our first call as this season approaches,” said fan Mike Reed. “That’s our family, that whole line actually, and we love it, we love that part of the game.”
The stadium is currently under construction in what the Kraft family says are the most dramatic improvements in the area since Gillette opened in 2002. And that means changes to parking lots and stadium entrance routes.
Once work is complete, the North End Zone will feature a new lighthouse and the largest outdoor video wall in the United States.
“I’m really excited because I’m sitting on the south side, so now I’m getting a real canvas,” says Matt Lyons, week three competitor. “Before, it was a tiny screen, so I can’t wait.”
