With the great response, we'll be sure to find a bigger spot next time (Gilette Stadium??). If you cannot attend, please strike your name from the list above. If you'd like to be 'waitlisted' feel free to add your name below. If others opt out, you'll be first on the list to get bumped in (Updated 10/5/07)
