When the Pats and Bucs both decided to let their kids muck around on the field for the last 5 minutes we decided it was time to leave. Getting away from Wembley can take over an hour longer if you...

It's got to be Jags vs the Cowgirls. If I can't cheer on the 'Skins at least let me boo the enemy.

Who do you think best knows how well this year's two games sold? Maybe the NFL? Maybe the two games sold so well that they're almost certain three games would do just as well. Or do you think that...

Yeah, but the Jax will, hopefully, have a QB that doesn't start each game by passing to the opposition. When that happened you could see that most of the Texans gave up.

I got a little tipsy at the last game - but that was from drinking 2/3 of a bottle of champagne (friend was doing the driving). But being as that's a little bit posh I guess it would still be OK with...

True, but who really wants to start up the 'Breast Cancer Charity' turf wars again? We all remember how awful that was (or did it only happen in my head?).

I got a survey from the NFL today. One of the questions was about using Premier Football stadiums for NFL Games.

It's a sellout when they've sold out of tickets. In the same way as Tesco can sell out of bread. It doesn't mean that they'll never have any more bread, just that they can't sell you any a that time....

Well, the 49ers have been my second team since I met their cheerleaders about 20 years ago. They really liked the English accent :)

It's a bit of a shame that we can't even buy the special 49ers and Jags gear. C'mon NFLUK, just the baseball caps would be something!

Absolutely! I was one of the thousands that went into London after the 7/7 bombings for no other reason than to stick two fingers up to the 'terrorists'.

With the minimalist security check we went through, I reckon I could have taken in a leg of pork, roast tatties and a bit of lettuce (makes it healthy) followed by a whole Balck Forest Gateaux.

Which area do you have tickets for? I've only ever been in Club Wembley where, so I've heard, facilities are different from other levels.

Yes, two years ago we got some noodles in the Long Bar East, Club Wembley, IIRC. And jolly yummy they were as well.
