I Am the Masked One.  The British are Coming.

 

Collusion between the NFL and Queen Elizabeth has resulted in multiple sanctioned games being played overseas.  I’m not quite sure why though I shouldn’t argue getting to watch football while eating my Cheerios.  Certainly conspiracy looms whenever things don’t make sense.  Football in England has a different meaning than to those of us in the USA.  I doubt we’re going to change their culture.

Seriously now how much commitment can you get from fans half a world away.  Would you get up at 3 am on a regular basis to see your favorite football team playing in America?  Or would you be tailgating at the Chelsea/Tottenham Spurs game?  There are at least twelve professional football (soccer) teams, dozens of semi pro teams and hundreds of youth teams, just in London.  I’m thinking we’re just a side show.

Sending the Cleveland Browns to represent why they should embrace American football probably adds to that carnival sentiment.  Actually I predicted an upset of the Vikings and if that pesky fourth quarter hadn’t got in the way they would have done just that.  As it is they remain one of two teams without a win.  Maybe they can find a phone booth and transform themselves during their bye week.

One if by land.  Two if by sea.  Apparently it was the latter as the Seahawks outlasted the Texans in one of the best duals of the week.  A total of seventy nine points was scored as the defenses traded high fives trotting on and off the field.  Both teams are home and heavily favored in week nine. Houston should have no problem where as Seattle will have more of a battle with Washington.

I heard rumor of a tea party in New England having something to do with these games in the United Kingdom.  So does the NFL have hopes of the British building an American style football program in England?  If so we’re going to have to get used to English broadcasters saying things like… look at that bloke running like (h)is mum caught (h)im with (h)is knickers down!.
