It’s only my second year being a dad, so to share my three favourite things on the planet on Father’s Day was a real treat.
My wife and daughter joined me for a local battle between the Birmingham Bulls and the Coventry Jets in my home town of Birmingham (UK).
It was great fun to see some live Britball, having not been to a domestic game for many many years.
The home team Bulls did not look good, with an overweight and slow quarterback, an anemic running game and a pass defense worse than my Washington Redskins.
The games opening score was around a 60 yard pass from Jets QB (#17) to wide receiver (#85). From then on until near to the half it was all Coventry.We only stayed for the first half as the 50 or so fans had to make the decision if they wanted to watch the game as it started to spit down. With a 1 year old daughter it was time to go, but to anyone who is in the UK you should check out some homegrown american football action.
The game had no entry fee and access to get right close up to the action. Hopefully if the weather improves I will be going back with the family and will make sure there is a full picnic and foldaway chairs.
