What a gift

Family of Pats fans get a post-Christmas surprise


She still keeps in touch with the Giants fan.

Zachary's first crawl ever was on the grass at Gillette Stadium on Father's Day last June during a Field Day with Dad event.

Louann Santos has an autographed photo of former linebacker Teddy Bruschi, whom she met during a karaoke charity event in Boston in 2010, that Greg gave her for an anniversary gift. She also has a photographs of that karaoke night, where she sang "Summertime," by Will Smith with Bruschi.

She comes by it honestly. Her father, Louis Ouellette, 67, is a lifelong fan of all the Boston teams, sticking with the Patriots, the Red Sox, the Bruins and the Celtics even through the awful years in true New England fashion. "He's the typical Boston fan. When they're losing they suck. When they're winning, they're the best ever," Greg Santos said.

An only child, Louann Santos absorbed all her father's passion. Now with a family of her own, she wants to pass it on her children. Hence the Twitter campaign. "My goal is to have it in their lives as much as it has been in ours," she said.

Jake said he wanted to hang the photograph, now framed, in his room along with his other heroes, such as SpongeBob SquarePants.
