Just a quick word about all the NFL team to London talk this morning as I take a break from packing up my house. Personally, I think it's a hell of an idea.
I can't understand why anyone wouldn't be for this. If you aren't, it's just ethnocentrism talking. I say spread the love. You know the city would be behind the team and it actually would be financially successful. In fact, it would be a team for sn entire country. I find that much more appealing than the Jacksonville's and Minnesota's out there. In fact, since they aren't going to dissolve the Vikings like they should, wouldn't London make a great place to send them?
Having a team in London might also start the ball rolling on having professional football in the summer Olympics, something that has been sorely missing all along. I would like nothing more than to see the Pro Bowl 2.0 in the next summer games. This coupled with the fact that hopefully more people pay less attention to soccer, and it's a total win-win.
I say let them have a team and do it now. But only if they call themselves the "Werewolves."
Yes, I know this has nothing to do with the Packers. We are playing the third string, flu infested Browns. The only thing to talk about is how much we will bitch at not scoring more.
