British Teal (@britishteal) are doing some good work organising and publicising get-togethers for gridiron fans in the UK. They have had pub nights in Cambridge and Manchester recently, and now I am helping organise one next Thursday, July 30th, in Southampton.
If you are in or around Southampton - come along!
If you are further away, then do what I did, get in touich with British Teal and organise one of these yourself
Very very good great work on who ever organised these
Thanks for the heads up, could be interesting, what exactly should I expect if I make the journey?
If only you had some of the business cards to hand out - site needs more patrons and I need more signups for my big daddy IDP live offline NFL draft league.
Cheers for the comments guys. I posted a link to this thread in the British Teal Facebook page, and I will certainly talk up this site and the fantasy games.
As a first attempt at this there are no real expectations - 7 people have said on Facebook that they are coming (thats since I posted lastnight, so should be more added over next week). Just want to meet new people and talk some football and have a beer. Hopefully there will be one or two people who are enthusiastic and prepared to set up a Facebook page for the group or a pick em game for the season or whatever.
Will update on here as I hear more!
Will see where I am that week, spending most of my days in Yorkshire at the mo. I was one of the unlucky ones that got caught in the mad traffic tonight on my way home so I did what one always does when its pouring down and stuck in traffic… Wind down the window, turn up the tunes and sing ones heart out.
Traffic was gridlocked here in Southampton. Took 45 mins to get 1.5 miles home in the pouring rain, would have been quicker on a space hopper…
haha not even seen one of them for a while, do they still sell?
Yours for under a tenner mate!
Haha might just bring one to the draft
Apparently they are still used by people in getting from A to B and in some cases as getaway vehicles…
Only in Scotland, right…
