    It was bound to happen... could think of other teams I'd prefer the Texans to play there

    Yous may disagree, but this is about time. I've been waiting 12 years for them to come here

    I'm happy for you guys overseas that get a chance like this. It doesn't affect my view, since I always watch on TV and never go to the games anyway. When this game approaches, I'll have to check the local Pubs to see if any might be open. I really like going to my favorite Pub on Sundays at noon and getting steak and eggs and watching the first half of the game.

    I watched the Jags play the 49ers, Cowboys, Bills and Colts in London from 2013-16, mainly to root against the Jags. Wish I could have seen the Texans when I lived there.

    God'ell sucks.

    Looks like I might be missing at least the first half of that game.

    Your loss. Americans come from all over Europe, especially the bases in Germany, to watch these games. It was always a great atmosphere.

    You’re correct, it is certainly an experience that I will never forget. In addition to all of the activities leading up to the game surrounding the stadium, I attended a party in Piccadilly Circus hosted by some of those in the sports media, and met lots of fans in the military and others from several countries. I also became a Joss Stone fan.

    Is that a recently built stadium where the Texans will be playing?

    I can only hope so as a Spurs supporter; however, the NFL has yet to announce the location as they plan to use Tottenham Stadium (New White Hart Lane*) and Wembley.

    It's not been determined yet. Assuming Tottenham ever finish their new stadium it will host two games and Wembley the other two.

    So we'll either be at Wembley or the Toilet Bowl.

    My office was a few blocks from Oxford Circus so I'm all too familiar with those Regent Street game day experience parties.

    The year the Cowboys played they were going to show up on the concert stage on Wembley grounds. Supposed to get dropped off backstage but something went wrong and they ended up walking to the stage right through the crowd. Fist-bumped Witten and Romo as they walked by. I need to go find those photos. I was representing Texas so went to the game in Cowboys gear.

    That is the game I went to. I missed the players appearance, but was there for the broadcast with Emmett, Irvin and trying to recall who else. Saw Boselli on stage, too.
    I would love to see the photos.
