    It has been announced by Chelsea FC that England's national soccer team's captain, John Terry, will act as Honorary Captain of the New York Football Giants at an official NFL game to be played at Wembley Stadium on October 28th of this year.

    Terry had this to say, "I have always been a big fan of American football and it is great to be asked to be honorary captain."

    Anyone out there fortunate enough to get tickets to this oversold event?

    At 500,000 subscribers I understand it was the most sought after ticket in the UK this year.

    Is this more propaganda? How can Footie Fan Land get so many people wanting NFL tickets?

    Wembley Stadium seats 90,000 and is sold out for the game, the first ever to be played outside North America.

    Unfortunately, there are not enough seats to hold all 500,000 of the people who requested tickets.


    Apparently the Dolphins have a large following in England, who knew?

    Kudos to London Mayor Ken Livingstone who spent countless hours "lobbying for the honor of having this game staged in London,"

    Because Brits have the capacity to understand and appreciate more than just 1 or 2 sports?

    That goes back to 1972. There was a caller on my sports radio once that said, "most people who come to the US to live you can figure out what year they arrived by their favorite teams. More often than not they will go with the team that won it all that year."

    Something must have happened in England in 72 for them to like the Dolphins.

    "it was the most sought after ticket in the UK this year" was what had me baffled.
