It's Not Football, It's Gridiron

The American game may be following us to London, the Guardian tells us (scroll down to the second headline):
London is on a shortlist of five cities being considered to host an NFL game next year. Nail-biting, isn't it? Shall we send them Watford v Charlton in return? It would, I'm sure, be a great accolade to be chosen it but if it does come here, as the late Peter Cook said to David Frost in response to a dinner invitation from the Duke and Duchess of York: "Oh dear. I find I'm watching television that night."

The prices of NFL tickets being what they are, I'm guessing this will be a relative bargain compared to seeing a game in the States--and easier than getting tickets for Arsenal.
