SOH's birthday present this year was tickets to the NFL game on 26th October 2008 at Wembley, between San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints. The tickets arrived by special delivery on Saturday morning, courtesy of our friendly postman.
Unlike many other sports, this ticketing purchase is done by a lottery, you enter the lottery to get a chance to buy tickets early before they get sold out. Now last year I entered, but no luck at all. This year I got the first draft of tickets so we will be heading to Wembley to watch the game; keep your fingers crossed that the weather stays kind to us as it is an evening game.
Not too worried about being with either group of supporters, quite happy to cheer on both sides but I will admit to a warmth for New Orleans.
