The New England Patriots and Team Power Publishing will provide Patriots fans with a must-have Super Bowl keepsake this August.
A 10" x 12" 220-page coffee table book titled Patriots United will chronicle the Patriots incredible 2001 season from free agency and the draft through Super Bowl Sunday and its celebration.
The masterfully crafted keepsake will help you re-live all the emotion from the Patriots amazing season with more than 350 color photos, many never-before-published, and exclusive stories.
In a year when United We Stand never rang truer, the Patriots epitomized that philosophy. When they marched into the Louisiana Superdome and were announced not as individuals, but as one, the world realized what New England fans already knew – the 2001 Patriots were special. Three hours later they were world champions.
Adam Vinatieri's last-second, heart-stopping, game-winning field goal washed away 42 years of trials and tribulations. As the red, white and blue confetti rained down, the Vince Lombardi Trophy was being held over the heads of Patriots.
This official publication will capture the essence of what it meant to be a Patriot. Under the guidance of Head Coach Bill Belichick, the Patriots scoffed at adversity, never wavered and seized their moment of glory. In Belichick's own words, 2001 was "Our Time."
This timeless publication will keep memories of the 2001 season at your fingertips. Read exclusive stories authored by Belichick, defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, safety Lawyer Milloy, linebacker Tedy Bruschi, guard Joe Andruzzi, former player and current broadcaster Gino Cappelletti, NFL Films president Steve Sabol, Sports Museum of New England Curator Richard Johnson, Patriots Football Weekly publisher Fred Kirsch, the Boston Herald's Kevin Mannix and the Patriot Ledger's Ron Hobson.
Also featured will be an epilogue penned by Patriots owner Robert Kraft and a foreword by the Boston Globe's Will McDonough.
