|It's hard to know where to start really as everything was amazing.||
On Sunday I went to the international series game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears in London. My first ever NFL game and it was awesome!
It's hard to know where to start really as everything was amazing. On the way in to the game I went to the Tailgate party and got some Colts merchandise from the NFL Shop. The stadium itself was huge and there were 76,981 fans and they were all wearing the colors of all 32 NFL teams. It was very colorful.
The evening got going with the American and the English national anthems and then the game started. Everything was brilliant because I saw all of the things that I see on TV and Madden; from the coin toss, the team mascots, the cheerleaders, the noise of the crowd, the players themselves and even the yellow penalty flags!
It was so cool to actually see the players in person. Brian Urlacher was really impressive and Jay Cutler handing off to Matt Forte and Marion Barber for a TD each was pretty awesome.
For the Buccaneers, Kellen Winslow and Josh freeman were awesome to see in person. They are so tall! I guess you can tell from my list that this was the Bears game, although Tampa did come back really strong in the fourth quarter.
Would I go again? Absolutely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
