I came to New England Revolution as an assistant in 2000 and I took over the hot-seat a couple of months into that season. We got to the MLS cup final that year, and in 2004, 2005 and 2006 – but we lost all of them.

My wife’s name, Rebecca Lobo, is on sandwiches and street signs in New England. It adorns the arena rafters at the University of Connecticut, where she first became a basketball star. Her high school in Massachusetts is on Rebecca Lobo Way, a nice trump card to play at reunions.
Steve Rushin
Deflategate. I mean it’s kind of idiotic in one way. On the other hand, look how totally obsessed we are with the fact that the New England Patriots may have taken, I don’t know, a half-pound or a pound square inch of air pressure out of the footballs. We love it.

Peter Uihlein
Belichick’s actually great. I wouldn’t mind being the New England Patriots. They seem to win a lot. Four-game suspension here and there doesn’t hurt nobody.
Seth Rollins
My parents are both from Vermont, very old-fashioned New England. We heated our house with wood my father chopped. My mom grew all of our food. We were very underexposed to everything.
Geena Davis
My father was in the coal business in West Virginia. Both dad and mother were, however, originally from Massachusetts; New England, to them, meant the place to go if you really wanted an education.

So many able historians have worked over seventeenth-century New England that one would think there was little left to be learned from the people who lived there – fewer than 100,000 at the end of the century. Seldom, apart perhaps from the Greeks and Romans, have so few been studied by so many.
Edmund Morgan
From the hour when the Puritan baby opened his eyes in bleak New England, he had a Spartan struggle for life.
Alice Morse Earle

I think the one commonality between the two Super Bowl teams I’ve been on is great, great teammates. I can honestly say that guys in Philly could definitely thrive in New England and vice versa – if you throw out the scheme differences.

Noah Feldman
I always wanted to grow up in a house full of books, English books, and I wanted the sort of fireplaces that worked, overstuffed chairs, that whole kind of fantasy of a bookish New England life.

Jhumpa Lahiri
I think one of the reasons Stephen King’s stories work so well is that he places his stories in spooky old New England, where a lot of American folk legends came from.

Stephen Gostkowski
Though born in Nova Scotia, I am of almost pure New England descent.
Simon Newcomb
I was navigator on the Gloucester schooner ‘Gertrude L. Thebaud’ in the International Fisherman’s race. That’s a big thing in New England – the race, I mean. A Boston newspaper man covered it, and saw me on board. For a long time I wished he hadn’t! He wrote a piece saying I ought to be in motion pictures.
Sterling Hayden
Few of the early houses in New England were painted, or colored, as it was called, either without or within. Painters do not appear in any of the early lists of workmen.

Michael Pollan
I would like to thank all of the fans who have supported me throughout my career with the New England Revolution, Fulham, Tottenham, Seattle Sounders, and the U.S. Men’s National Team. Y’all have always made me feel at home, and it is something that I will always remember.
Clint Dempsey
In the kind of New England I’m from, you are expected to stay and marry somebody from New England – well, Maine, actually – so I think it was seen as a betrayal when I left for New York, which has been my refuge.
Elizabeth Strout
When Robert Frost was alive, I was known as the other new England poet, which is to be barely known at all.
Howard Nemerov

I got private lessons in keyboard at Julliard, before New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.
Bernie Worrell
I’m from Connecticut, and we don’t have any dialects. Well, I don’t think we have any dialects, and yeah, it’s very complex. That Rhode Island/Massachusetts New England region is arguably the hardest dialect to nail.
Seth MacFarlane
Jasmine, the name of which signifies fragrance, is the emblem of delicacy and elegance. It is reared with difficulty in New England, but at the South, puts forth all its graces.

W. E. B. Du Bois
I grew up in the early ’70s in New England.

I don’t cheer for anyone because my job is obviously more important, but the reason why I got into sports is because of my father. He’s a giant sports fan and we are from New England, so he cheered for the Celtics and the Red Sox.
Erin Andrews
If there ever was a militant religion, it was that of early New England.
Paul P. Harris
What you have is two men seeking the White House; they’re both products of prominent New England families. They both went to private boarding schools. They both went to a prestigious university.

I’ve only been to New Zealand once, about 1989. It was incredibly beautiful, kind of like the ideal of where I live in New England – all that and then some – but I can’t say I was there long enough to get any very clear idea.

Paul P. Harris
I have a lot of respect for New England.
Philip Rivers
I’d like to record somewhere really different. Rent a really big house and get a mobile in and set up in the dining room. Maybe New England; it’d be nice in September or October.
Robert Smith
I’m a working-class kid from a blue-collar New England family.

Chris Sununu
New England waters are some of my favorite – they are some of the richest waters because they are temperate waters and nutrient-rich, and therefore provide food for so many animals, from giant whales to sharks to everything else.
Brian Skerry
Some of my ancestors were religious dissenters who came to America over three hundred years ago. Others were abolitionists in New England in the eighteen forties and fifties.

Spring has many American faces. There are cities where it will come and go in a day and counties where it hangs around and never quite gets there. Summer is drawn blinds in Louisiana, long winds in Wyoming, shade of elms and maples in New England.
Archibald MacLeish
Oh, the ignorance of us upon whom Providence did not sufficiently smile to permit us to be born in New England.
Horace Porter
I was raised as an upper-class WASP in New England, and there was this old tradition there that everyone would simply be guided into the right way after Ivy League college and onward and upward. And it rejected me, I rejected it, and I ended up as a kind of refugee, really.
Spalding Gray
My family is first-generation Nigerian, and we grew up in a very small, suburban town in New England, Massachusetts. So I do understand what it feels like to be an ‘only’ in that regard.
