Are you ready for some football? Ready or not, here it comes!

Summer's seem to be short here in Maine and New England, and this certainly might have you thinking about fall.

The Patriots open up training camp one week from today. (July 27) Their first preseason game is three weeks from today, and they open up the regular season seven weeks from today as they hang another championship banner in Foxborough at Gillette Stadium, and start the road for perhaps, another Super Bowl run.

Most of the so called experts agree that the Patriots will be the team to beat this year, as they have added depth at almost every position, and they still have Tom Brady, who may be the greatest quarterback of all time and Bill Belichick, who may be the greatest coach of all time.

Of course, injuries to key players could derail their chances, but it always seems they are right where they need to be in December, as the NFL regular season winds down.

B98.5 is proud again, this year, to be your home in Central Maine for the New England Patriots. We will be airing all of their games on the Bee, from the opening snap of preseason game #1, all the way to the final whistle of Superbowl 52 in February. (Hopefully)
