This weekend will be more exciting than most for me. As for those who aren’t aware I am currently a UK resident, and due to the economic hardships of late, I haven’t had the opportunity to come back over and watch the Falcons play for the last few years.
That makes this weekend special for me as I am able to travel about 50 miles to go and watch an NFL game, live at Wembley Stadium in London. Although the Falcons aren’t playing it is still a great opportunity for all the NFL fans over here.
Before the game on Sunday, I also have a great opportunity to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell with 50 or so other NFL fans at a Q&A event in central London on Saturday Morning.
On Blogging Dirty this weekend, for the Falcons coverage I leave you in the trusty hands of Ian, Scott and Greg, to keep you updated with latest from the Falcons – Lions game.
I will also supply coverage from London, I will post the main points that come out of the Q&A with Goodell, as well as photos and news from all the events that have been planned around the game at Wembley.
If you haven’t already done so follow Blogging Dirty on Twitter, for lots of interesting tweets from across the pond this weekend.
If you do happen to flick over to the game, look out for me in my Red Julio Jones jersey, cheering on the Bears to beat the NFC South rivals Tampa Bay!
