Taken a while for me to get these online due to my internet being offline for a while. However here are my photos from the NFL International Series in London between the Dolphins and Giants.

It wasn't the best of games Football wise, but it was a great experience and a great day. My seats were quite far away in the nosebleed sections but it didnt take anything away from the day.

I have to say though the game in Wembley did not compare at all to the Texans game I went too, the atmosphere, noise and everything was so much better in Houston. The lack of Football knowledge from the fans around me was quite annoying, I have never had to explain so many rules in my life. And it was quite annoying to hear a loud chorus of boos when the Giants took a knee at the end.

Not the greatest photgraphs and by far not all of them online, had to handpick them though as I have a limit on flickr. I hope you enjoy them, you may be able to tell that I am no photographer.

Thanks for posting. We love hearing from you. Well I know I do after hearing about your experience of a lifetime here in Houston.

They were failrly knowledgeable on a general view of the game, but at times I had many dumb founded guys around me, such as an intentional grounding call. It was probably just where I was sat as I know alot of people who went are fanatics like myself.

I did actually have more than just the Texans cap on, however it got very cold....and then the rains came, resulting in me putting a sweatshirt on lol. I was going to go with some paint also however the rains spoiled that idea.

Thanks for the pix. How's the new Wembley Stadium - I've heard it's pretty awesome?
