Reflections on Saints v Chargers at Wembley last week

Posted: November 4, 2008 in Uncategorized

Its now coming up to a full week from the New Orleans Saints 37-32 victory over the San Diego Chargers at Wembley Stadium, and for NFL FAN IN ENGLAND it is time to get back into the routine of watching the NFL at home as the wind whistles through the trees outside and the rain lashes against the window pane.

It truly is a dream to see a REAL NFL game in England, right in front of my eyes, and not in front of my televison screen. I’m one of these people that cannot afford a new HD plasma tv, so to see the likes of LaDanian Tomlinson and Drew Brees in the flesh is a real genuine honour.

So from an NFL FAN IN ENGLAND how was the game ? Ill put some pictures below as they say it best, but I will add some comments to go with them too…………

As usual the walk down Olympic Way was a soggy one - but seeing NFL brading made me happy

Yes there are Bengals fans in England - even ones with daft orange ears. My wife had me chase this person up the road to get a picture ! She is a Bengals fan
