My name is Randy Lutz, currently living in Providence, RI. I'm the Sports Editor for www.rhodynews.com, and I'm also a business consultant who has just finished wrapping up an accounting degree. I've been a huge sports guy my whole life, beginning with participation in town sports leagues and continuing on through now, as a sideline reporter at Boston Celtic and PC Friars games, as well as handling the sports reporting for the region in general (semi-pro sports, general interest stuff).
My business is to be highly analytical, and this often flows over into my writing. I'll rarely post anything without statistical backup, and I'll often break down the statistics a great deal. My financial background also often helps to understand complex issues with things like CBA's, salary cap implications, tax implications of certain moves, things of this nature. I attend most home games of both the Celtics and Providence Friars, and therefore may contribute from time to time on basketball blogs throughout the site.
As for the Patriots...
I first fell in love with the Patriots during their 1996 Superbowl game against the Packers. I remember listening to Jam'n 94.5 out of Boston (I was into hip-hop as a kid, not so much these days, more a BCN guy now) and listening to their daily practical joke. They had open calls for Packers fans to win something, challenged one to run through the neighborhood with nothing but a cheesehead on. At the end of the day, there was no actual prize for him, just a neighbor with a camera waiting in his driveway, lol. The real defining moment as a football fan for me however, was the Superbowl send-off party (if you will). Basically, this was a little get together the day before the Patriots left for the big game, where all the Pats players showed up and thousands of Pats fans showed up to send them off right. Me, I showed up with some friends something like 2 hours early. Our dedication was rewarded with front row "seats" (everyone was standing though) to the event. We heard guys like Drew Bledsoe, Sam Gash, and Curtis Martin get to the mic and thank the fans for their support-and we were only feet from them! At that moment, I knew the Pats were "my team". Fortunately for me this was a great time to discover Boston sports (I know it was late, but hey-my parents weren't really sports people. I played growing up but we never really went to any games, or even watched them at home, mostly I just played a lot). After all, we all know how the last 15 years or so has gone for the Boston sports fan.
For that 15 years my life has brought me many different places. Several years ago it brought me to Gillette Stadium, where I worked as a sophomore in college restocking concession stands on the concourse throughout the week after a home game (and some during the game, but not too bad, mostly just kegs of beer and ice). The experience was wonderful. I was able to stand field side for a lot of games. I stood in the tunnel as Tedy Bruschi made his heroic return from heart issues against the Bills. I remember the following week walking through the tunnels past Peyton, Eli, and Archie Manning as they prepared for Peyton to play the Pats on MNF. I watched Vinatieri and Colvin bet as to whether Colvin could kick a FG or not (he couldn't). In short, that was one of the greatest jobs I've ever had, and brought me even closer with the team I'd laid claim to all those years ago.
Most recently my son has brought me even closer to the Patriots. He's 5 years old now, and suffers from Cerebral Palsy (suffer is not really the right word though, not for a kid with a smile like his 24/7). Last year we brought him to Pats training camp and we were able to meet both Tom Brady and Randy Moss, who both posed for pictures with my son and signed his leg braces. It's now my dream to finagle a way for my son to hang out with Tom Brady and his son for a day. It's also my son's dream who tells me everyday he wants to play trucks with Tom Brady's little boy. Someday...
That's enough about me, noone came here to read about me, they came to read about the Pats, and here that's what you'll get. You'll get the local feeling about the Patriots, you'll get updates, you'll get previews, you'll get reviews, and you'll get pure, unadultured (and sometimes unedited!) opinion on your New England Patriots because these days they're not just "my team" any longer, these days I'm working hard to help interest you, keep you up to date on news, keep you in touch, and ultimately make them "your team" as well if they're not already.
