Meet the Author Jerry Thornton
October 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Since 2001 the Patriots have played in eight Super Bowl championships and won five. This is a run of excellence unparalleled in all of professional sports. In a league designed to ensure that no one franchise dominate over time, New England has won for over a decade. A dynasty that began with an improbable championship run in 2001 has rebuilt, rebooted, and retooled several times over. But during those years, no other franchise reached the same level of controversy, drama, and turmoil—or even came close.
Join us for this historic author talk with Jerry Thornton, bestselling author of From Darkness to Dynasty: The First 40 Years of the New England Patriots. Thornton provides an all-access pass to the Patriots’ years of unparalleled greatness from the unique perspective of an observant, obsessive, utterly dedicated fan.
JERRY THORNTON writes daily for Barstool Sports and co-hosts their NFL podcast Laces Out. He’s a stand up comic working clubs all over the northeast. Jerry is the former co-host of WEEI sports radio’s “Dale and Holley with Thornton,” and NBC Sports Boston’s Patriots pregame show. He appears in HBO’s Emmy-winning Red Sox documentary Reverse of the Curse of the Bambino as well as the upcoming Deflategate film Four Games in Fall. And you can catch him in the popular web video series “Sh*t Pats Fans Say.”
