    Former New England linebacker Andre Tippett hopes his election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame will be a good omen for the Patriots on Sunday. As New England's executive director of community affairs, Tippett had plenty of support from the Patriots' Super Bowl traveling party as he waited to learn whether he was headed to Canton. "Everybody, from day one when we got here, they were like, 'Hey, we're looking to do something special -- you on Saturday and us on Sunday,' " Tippett said on Saturday. "It couldn't have happened at a greater time." Surrounded by family, team employees and fans, Tippett watched the Hall of Fame announcement on television in the lobby of the team's headquarters hotel in nearby Scottsdale. "When they said, it, man, the whole lobby just broke out in an uproar," Tippett said. "It was overwhelming a little bit. I looked soft for a little while, but that was OK. It was a good thing. It was cool that people were able to share that with us."
