Now the NFL promised to bring a Superbowl trophy to Wembley to be at the official tailgate party. A real gleaming Vince Lombardi Trophy. Now both my wife and I thought that the NFL would conveniently forget to pack the shiny silver mounted ball, and instead bring a giant cardboard version.
We queued up outside the Hall of Fame tent and after just about ten minutes we were shuffled into a crowded room. Inside were some of the most incredible NFL exhibits you are ever gonna clamp your eyes upon.
Items on display included the shirt Brett Favre wore when he broke the NFL passing record, the fake foot/boot Tom Dempsey wore when he originally set the record for the longest NFL field goal, a helmet worn by John Elway, a shirt from AFL 1960s San Diego Chargers legend Lance ‘Bambi’ Alworth, and a shirt worn by Baltimore Colts god Johnny Unitas.
Normally you have to go all the way to Canton, Ohio to see such amazing sights so thumbs up to the NFL – WOW.
Ill let the pictures do the talking here, as my words will not do justice to these unbelievable pieces of history.
