The Patriots defense did more than slow down the "Wildcat" and limit Ronnie Brown's and Ricky Williams' effectiveness in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.
It also earned fans a discount to The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon on Tuesday, Nov. 10 when all tickets to the spectacular, technology-rich hall of fame and modern museum will be just $5.
As part of The Hall's new Terrific Tuesday promotion, the Patriots defense was assigned the task of holding the Wildcat Twins - Brown and Williams - below their combined per game rushing average of 134 yards. By limiting the duo to just 81 combined rushing yards, the Patriots defense earned Hall visitors a discount.
The task of earning the $5 ticket for next Tuesday, Nov. 17, will again fall on the Patriots defense. If that unit holds dangerous Colts tight end Dallas Clark below his per game average of 7.5 catches, Hall guests will receive the discount next Tuesday as well.
The Hall also is offering other weekday programming. While a visit to The Hall is typically self-guided because of the venue's interactive elements, expert Hall guest services staffers will begin offering guided tours of The Hall every Tuesday and Wednesday at 2 p.m. The tours will provide increased insight into the many exhibits and artifacts and allow guests to enjoy a different experience while still being able to take advantage of The Hall's interactivity.
Wednesday is Kids Day. The Hall is offering programming geared toward preschool children and their parents. Each Wednesday at 11 a.m., kids will have the opportunity to participate in an activity that might include story time, singing, dancing and/or a craft project. While children ages 4 and younger are typically free, there will be a $3 charge for those children participating in this program.
Thursday afternoon is a time for the hardcore fans starving for Patriots knowledge. The Hall's curator, Brent Hensel, will pick an artifact or display and delve deeper into its history to interpret for interested Hall guests. This program will provide a unique perspective of The Hall's collection and help increase knowledge of Patriots history within the community.
