FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Brandon Bolden's first regular-season session with the media on Thursday had to be shifted from the traditional spot in front of his stall to a more spacious area in the corner of the New England Patriots locker room to accommodate the throng of reporters anticipating his arrival.
Standing against the wall, his eyes wide and mind ready, the running back stared out at three to four rows of eager reporters, both waiting patiently for the other to commence the interview.
``First off,'' Bolden said with a wide smile, ``how's everybody doing today?''
The rookie had no trouble breaking the ice Sunday, either, delivering a breakout performance that not only stamped his presence in the Patriots offense, but also helped put New England's running game back on the map.
