    #12 Jersey

    i am still here in London and i will come back to Italy tomorrow...it was a very nice experience,no doubt: more then 80,000 fans on the fantastic new Wembley Stadium

    i have seen all NFL jerseys from the fans with only 1 exception: Houston (but probably someone had it too but personally i did not seen it).

    there were many Pats jerseys (i have seen different Brady's plus 1 Vrabel, 1 Troy Brown, 1 with still Wilie Mc Ginest, 1 Moss, 1 Seymour).
    I had a jacket with written ''Patriots since 1960 and Pat Patriot logo''.

    When i arrived in my place there were all Dolphins fans, expecially from Scotland.

    My place was a very good one: the ticket cost was quite high but no problem (you are not going to see an NFL game every day...) anyway his cost was Lst. 90, approx 160 Usd.

    i was interviewed by a London radio at the half time; they asked me how and why from Italy i was there and if i was jealous that game was not playied in Italy...
    they were surprised too i was a Pat Fan instead of a fan of one of the 2 teams playing...

    during the trip i met some MIA and NYG fans coming from Us, all of them very nice people...

    at the end of the game i was able, outside the Stadium before players were taking their bus, to shake hands with Strahan and J.Taylor (it was a nice experience !); it was impossible to go near Tom Coughlin (he was quite happy for the win)

    weather conditions ? not so good (rain, not heavy, and some wind), but i can not complain.

    so generally it was really good.

    the athmosfera was nice too, the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders very awesome and the game too could have been re-opened at the end after Ted Ginn td but the onside kick went out and so game over with 'boos' at the end (why ? i do not know...) it is normal in cases like that QB put the knee down to expire the time, so why 'booo' ?


    anyway Eli Manning was only able to complete if i am not wrong 59 yards...Jacobs was good...Miami was totally unable to score and they have done it only at the end...too late

    if they should have recovered the onside kick i think the fans would have really been excited

    at the end me and my friends went to the exit to try to met players (we done it) and also to wait as thousands and thousands of fans were going, like us, to take the train

    i arrived at our Hotel approx midnight quite tired but happy - the NFL is the best sport, no doubt

    and i was happy to have showed with proud NE Patriots colours !!!

    when i returned to the hotel i saw the score...Pats 52/Wsh zero...and i thought there wasa mistake...

    i saw a Giants fan at the reception and i said him: Pats won 52/0 and he said me ''The Pats are a good team...we playied a bad game...'...

    then i saw a season ticket holder from Miami (an old person) and he told me too: Pats are a very good team

    Molto bene (is that right?). Excellent report. You should find that radio interview and upload it, if possible. That would be great.

    The skins did score a TD late.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. I thought about you and wondered how you would manage in the chaos that is London. :D

    and going with undeground you avoid the traffic
