Attracting a crowd
Punter Zoltan Mesko, who was born in Romania, was the leader in the clubhouse for ticket requests, with 25 for friends and family. “It was quite an investment,’’ said Mesko, who was happy to foot the bill for the ducats given the travel expenses his entourage was willing to incur. “It’s the least I could do for them,’’ he said . . . Dan Connolly, who could not play through a lingering illness last Sunday, said he was fine and ready to make the trip to London, where he expected friends and relatives. “It’s funny, but I don’t even get that many [ticket requests] for games here [in Foxborough],’’ he said.
