After missing out on last year’s game (probably quite fortunately, as it turned into a pretty dismal low scoring rain-soaked affair), we picked up tickets for the Saints vs Chargers and headed in to Wembley. Great stadium, first time I’ve been there, and watching an NFL game live is fantastic. The games can go pretty slowly on television with all the ad breaks, the stoppages seem to go a bit quicker live. As predicted, the game was a shoot-out, both quarterbacks passing for over 300 yards, neither defence getting much of a pass rush going, so pretty spectacular to watch and plenty of touchdowns. San Diego didn’t do themselves any favours, being heavily penalised, but came back strongly at the end of the game before Rivers was intercepted to effectively finish things off. Great day out, and looking forward to seeing which two teams come over in 2009.
Hey, I was there too. The game was much better than last year’s effort. Hopefully they’ll send over the Bears next year!
We probably bumped into each other!!1! Or some of the other 83,000 people at least… Really enjoyed the game, though a bit more defence would’ve been nice, definitely be up for it next year unless it’s something like Texans vs Lions…
If it’s Chiefs vs Lions I will cry.
