London Patriots Game Update: Setting the Scene

SoB’s Jeff is live in London for the Patriots-Buccaneers game all weekend. Be sure to check back for more updates.

London is abuzz with Boston accents, Budweiser, and flying Elvis’. From the moment I arrived at Boston’s Logan Airport for our Virgin Atlantic flight to Heathrow, Patriots fans have been in my sight. Hundreds of Bostonians, New Englanders and fans from all over the world have come to London to see the Patriots play the Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium today.

On Saturday night, the Sports Zone near Picadilly Circus was the sight for a VIP pre-game party for Patriots fans. Pats owner Robert Kraft, Andre Tippett, the Patirots Cheerleaders and others were on hand as fans congregated to throw back a few pints and get psyched for the game.

I had the pleasure of chatting with two young guys who flew in from Denmark to see their first ever NFL game (and they are Patriots fans). The game is just a few hours away and the atmosphere is building as I get ready to hop on the tube to head to Wembley for ‘pre-game festivities’. The Patriots are big favorites in this game and judging from how filled the streets are with our supporters, we will be well represented at the national stadium of England.
