    Well, I head across the pond tomorrow for the Pats/Bucs game in London. Hopefully this "canon fodder" section of our schedule doesn't lull the team into a false sense of security. We need all the wins we can get.

    If they lose I may not come back. I'll do the whole expatriate thing.....no pun intended.

    It should be a lot like a Pats home game. They had to add several more Boston - London planes to handle all the fans traveling over there.:tup:

    I hope your Chiefs/Raiders weeks ahead work out like our Titans/Bucs should.

    Have a safe trip, dude. Plenty of good pubs in London, although I got to drink more in Nottingham myself.

    I recommend Strongbow. :icon_toast:

    Patriots need the road win...they are 0-2 so far. This game and then the bye week, and then they move into the tough part of the schedule. They meet a red hot Miami, then Indianapolis, the Jets, New Orleans, and Miami again...five tough games that will make or break their season.

    Have a great weekend Beer Guy...give my best to the Queen.

    Thanks everyone.

    Usually, these work trips are of the "What happens in Vegas....stays in Vegas," variety. That being said, I am still bringing a camera and I will definitely post pics.

    I wonder if the Pats brought the Minutemen, that fire their muskets after a score, with them to London. That would be a pretty nice poke in the eye for the Brits.......:tup:

    Have a blast BG!. Don't drink the Guinness, not as good as over here. I would recommend sticking to the real ales eg. Bombardier, Deuchars, Landlord IPA. All very gorgeous indeed. Pity I am not over there this weekend, would loved to have shared a few scoops with ya!. Enjoy!.

    Is that right? Are you talking about the Guinness in London? Or in Ireland?

    Thank gawd. Now I can visit Ireland. :lol:

    Not sure what beer(s) I was drinking in London, but I don't remember Guinness being in the regular rotation. The food was so bad the only thing I consumed was beer.

    I'm not sure that the minutemen would be the best idea for public relations

    The Strongbow that I had wasn't cider. Or maybe I'm mistaken on the name. :icon_huh:

    Excuse me... let me rephrase that.

    Imported Guiness is still better than all known forms of American beer produced commercially by major brewing companies. :lol:

    Have you ever tried a Black Velvet. Half pint of Guinness with a half pint of cider thrown in on top. Sounds lethal.
