As the Patriots get set to open the 2008 season, it seems like the right time to introduce a few members of our enthusiastic Boston Globe/Boston.com team who plan to follow all aspects of New England's Super Bowl quest:
Mike Reiss -- Mike first began covering the Patriots in 1997-98 while writing for the team's official newspaper and web site, and also covered the team for the MetroWest Daily News. He joined the Globe in 2005.
Christopher Gasper -- Christopher first began working at Boston.com in 2001 and officially joined the Boston Globe the following year. He began covering the Patriots in September of 2006.
Chad Finn -- Chad was recently named to Boston.com's newly created online sports reporter/writer position, where he'll contribute news in this space from time to time as well as provide commentary on the Patriots in his Touching All the Bases blog.
Chris Forsberg -- Chris interned with the Globe from 1999-2003 before joining the staff at Boston.com in 2006. He covers the high school sports beat, but will lend his talents (and video camera) to our Patriots coverage.
The blog should not be much different than years past, but with more voices and hands on deck, it allows us to provide even more in-depth coverage.
We look forward to following the Patriots throughout the 2008 season, offering sights and sounds from Gillette Stadium and the road, as well as analysis and insight on the team. We hope you join in from time to time by using our comments feature.
