Hello my name is Lawrence Vos and I am the author of this Blog. I am 39 years old, happily married, a dad of two beautiful daughters, and a Redskins fan since 1985. I live in Walmley, in the West Midlands, England, near to the Belfry Golf Course and the city of Birmingham.
I campaigned for many years to see former Redskin wideout Art Monk get into the NFL Hall of Fame – and actually ran out into the street and screamed Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees about 3 times when he was finally included into the Class of 2008.
I have attended six NFL pre-season games at Wembley Stadium, around 10 London Monarchs games (including the 1991 World Bowl), five NFL regular season games held at Wembley Stadium (see below), as well as the following NFL games in the USA;
- San Francisco 49ers v Washington Redskins (2002 in San Francisco)
- San Diego Chargers v New York Jets (2004 in San Diego)
- Washington Redskins v Dallas Cowboys (2004 in Washington)
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Washington Redskins (2007 in Tampa Bay)
- Miami Dolphins v New York Giants (2007 – at Wembley, London)
- New Orleans Saints v San Diego Chargers (2008- at Wembley, London)
- Miami Dolphins v Buffalo Bills (2009 in Miami)
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers v New England Patriots (2009 – at Wembley, London)
- San Francisco 49ers v Denver Broncos (2010 – at Wembley, London)
- Miami Dolphins v Oakland Raiders (2012 – in Miami)
- Minnesota Vikings v Pittsburgh Steelers (2013 – at Wembley, London)
- Atlanta Falcons v Detroit Lions (got ticket for 2014 – at Wembley, London)
That’s 16 teams out of 32 (50%) and 5 NFL stadiums plus the neutral Wembley venue 5 times. Only 16 teams and 27 stadiums to go (well 26 as I’ve been to the Oakland Collesium to see the Oakland A’s play baseball).
I have also seen the following NCAA College football games live;
- California v Air Force (2002)
- University of Central Florida v University of Texas El Paso (2007)
- Miami, Fla U v Oklahoma (2009)
