Bears, Buccaneers and a little bit of Knitting...

On Sunday I went to the International Series NFL game at Wembley. I am an American Football fan - this is the third time I've been to Wembley to watch it and I'm sure it won't be the last.


We started at the Tailgate party which was super busy so we didn't really see much, I paid £15 for 2 hotdogs and 2 bottles of coke - and there weren't even any onions! I was wearing handknitted items - it started off fairly warm but the wind picked up throughout the day and it did turn chilly, I was glad I had my hat, gloves and shawl!


The Goo Goo Dolls played the pre-show and I do love the National Anthems! This years game was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. the Chicago Bears, I don't have a favourite team (although I am drawn to the Green Bay Packers because of the Cheese Heads) so I support the team who have to give up a home game to come to the UK to try and make up for the reduction in the number of their fans coming. Unfortunately the score was 18-24 to the Bears but it was an exciting game anyway!

I took my knitting, I was a little bit worried they wouldn't let me it to the stadium with it but they were only concerned about glass bottles, I didn't get much done though.


I'm still knitting my Gothy Gauntlets for the Goth Socks KAL, I hope they will be finished by the 31st but this weekend I will be at Fibre Flurry so I am going to be cutting it fine...


  1. My brother and his wife were at the game too!! Looks like you had a good time!

  2. Fun! It would definitely be too hard to knit here at the football (American NFL) games because the seats are pretty tight and the fans tend to get pretty crazy :) Jay Cutler used to be our starting QB (Denver Broncos.) Love your Gothy Gauntlets!!!

  3. I love the Goo Goo Dolls :)
