Missed Connection at The Salt Line

“Dear PoPville,

I had a missed connection at The Salt Line in Navy Yard last Saturday night (7/24) and thought I’d give it a shot and put it on here. I was sitting at the outdoor bar with friends, he was standing in a group behind us. When I heard someone yell “Live Free or Die” I turned around and abruptly blurted out “are you talking about New Hampshire?” (I don’t meet many other people from my weird little state down here.)

We chatted for about twenty minutes about New England, my feelings about Tom Brady and the particular superstition my family has during Patriots games. I couldn’t tell if he was with one of the girls in his group or not, so I didn’t offer my number when his friends came and told him it was time to go. If you’re reading this and single – let’s watch a game sometime!

The girl who’s always outside during Patriots games”
