    Now c'mon, what does this tell you about our Patriot/Boston Fans??????

    .

    BOSTON (Reuters Life!) Boston emergency services debuted a specialized ambulance designed to carry obese patients on Tuesday, and the retrofitted vehicle was promptly needed on two calls, authorities said.

    The ambulance is equipped with a special stretcher that can hold 850 pounds and a hydraulic lift with a 1,000 pound capacity, said Captain Jose Archila of Boston's Emergency Medical Services fleet.

    The ambulance is likely to be needed two to four times a week, he said.

    "We have seen a huge increase in the last six months," said Archila about the number of calls by obese patients.

    Tuesday's two runs were not likely to be the norm, he explained, adding the ambulance was designed for the safety of patients and the crews helping them.

    About one third of adults in the United States are obese, including 33.3 percent of men and 35.3 percent of women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, citing 2005-2006 figures.

    Back injuries among crews are common due to strain from lifting extremely heavy patients, he said. The ambulance makes the patients more comfortable as well.

    In appearance, the ambulance looks like any other. The hydraulic lift is folded and stowed underneath the bed, and a gas tank was repositioned to accommodate it, Archila said.

    Don't know why this has anything to do with Patriots fans, but since you ask, maybe your coach should have one on standby.

    It tells me that Patriots fans aren't the only ones who need remedial thread-starting classes.

    how about you try not being non-commital and make your username something about the Pats..because we all know you aren't a Jets fan.

    I picked my username after the 2002 season, back in the days when the AFC East was actually competitive from top to bottom. But I've never hidden the fact that I am a Patriots fan.

    If I could figure out how to change my name now, I'd be more than happy to accommodate you. But the only posters who seem to get confused about my loyalties are newb pats fans and I really couldn't care less what they think.
