The NFL season kicked off this weekend, and I’m looking forward to it – I’ll be following the Seattle Seahawks (GO HAWKS!) and am hoping the rest of the season works out as well as this weekend’s win over the San Francisco 49ers!
Last season I had the privilege of seeing the Seahawks beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 41-0 so hopefully we’ll see something like that again, anyway here are my key thoughts:
- Not enough British people are into American football – it’s a very entertaining game and the lack of interest means it’s never on the telly. Gutted. Oh well, video highlights are available over here so at least there’s that.
- I’ve got to think about booking holiday the day after the Superbowl – last year I missed the second half so I could get to work on time, and that’s always better than the first!
- There’s another game happening at Wembley (and rumours of the NFL moving two games per season over here) – chances are I won’t be there as tickets start at £35 for the lowest seats right under the goals. Not a good view.
- Phil & Liz live directly below us, like the NFL, and have Sky+. Triple score.
