NFL CHAT

Good morning GMs

1. Who's your team? (NFL or other sport/league)
2. Favorite sports memory
3. Least favorite team
4. Worst sports memory

I'd like to use this forum to talk about NFL news, updates, things that interest you guys. Free for all, but keep it polite. Don't say anything, for example, like "The Eagles ****," or "The Cowboys are irrelevant!," or "The Commanders? What a terrible name." I don't want to hear it, and we all already know that.
I'm kidding, and obviously a Giants fan... sadly.

Good luck in our inaugural seasons GMs. Feel free to reach out to me any time for anything.

Okay, here we go...

1. My favorite team(s) are #1Penn State #2Houston Astros #3Indy Colts. I love Penn State, and was accepted to go there until "Uncle Sam" wanted me to do a little service for him. While in the Air Force, i became a Houston Astros fan. Baseball is my true love, and i play three on line baseball games along with this game.

2.Favorite sports memory was when i was nine years old, our little league baseball coach said "boys if you win tonight, i'll buy ice cream at a new restaurant." Well we won, piled into 3 coaches cars and went to opening night at a restaurant named Gino's. Being opening nite, the owner was there with two of his friends. The owner was Gino Marchetti (hall of fame), Artie Donavan (hall of fame) and Johnny Unitas (hall of fame). I shook their hands, got an autographed picture of each of them and was a Colts fan the rest of my life.

3. Least favorite team.....the Yankees...'nuff said.

4.Playing volleyball in a co-ed tournament, i went up to block a shot by some girl on the other team, and as she followed through on her shot, our hands met over the net and she broke my hand. My buddies wouldnt let me live it down that a girl broke my hand.

5.Extra points: I also love golf. I have one hole in one, and once shot even par on a difficult par 72 golf course. Currently my handicap is 12 in our senior league and i am looking forward to the weather getting warmer so we can get out and play.

H....

Good morning GMs

1. Who's your team? (NFL or other sport/league)

Seattle Seahawks/Liverpool FC

UK based, so real football came first. Liverpool were my first love from knee high to today. I was fortunate enough that my Dad took me to hundreds of games from 8 years old (standing on a crate in the Kop end. He was a Wolverhampton Wanderers fan and wanted me to follow but I convinced him to take me to Anfield and he was converted.

American Football arrived in the UK in the mid '80's with a once a week, one hour highlights program on a Sunday evening. I went with one of the youngest teams (Seahawks or Buccaneers) and went with Seattle because I didn't like Tampa's orange uniform.

2. Favorite sports memory

European nights at Anfield under the floodlights were always incredible. Favourite memory is probably starting a chant at Wembley in a League Cup Final which the teams supporters then started singing en masse #Goosebumps.

With Seattle, the Superbowl win was special, but it wasn't a great game. Maybe Beastquake 1.0 and 2.0 or the improbable comeback against Green Bay in the playoffs

3. Least favorite team

Manchester United

Denver, Kansas City, San Diego Chargers (now LA), Oakland Raiders (now Las Vegas), Pittsburgh, New England, San Francisco, St Louis Rams (now LA), Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay, Tampa Bay (well anywhere where Tom Brady plays), the crew of officials in the Pittsburgh - Seattle Superbowl

4. Worst sports memory

Heysel

The two Superbowl losses

I wish I grew up watching the Premiere League. I started watching about 5 years ago, and while I don't feel right about claiming a team I do love when Arsenal wins. Maybe it's because my wife's name is Chelsea ha. My buddy, who got me into it, is a huge Liverpool fan so it's fun watching matches with him.

It's cool hearing that the NFL has had some draw in The UK since the 80's. I've always thought it would be awesome if there were some UK expansion teams.

1. Who's your team? (NFL or other sport/league). I started following the nfl about a year ago (from the uk)and my daughter picked the buffalo bills as she thought I said the gruffalo bills and that’s a story she reads at school . Got pretty lucky and a big J.Allen fan . Probably watches more nfl than the premier league in the last year and I’m an Arsenal fan .
2. Favorite sports memory - when I was 11 played in a Sunday league final in front of about 2000 people and we won . Complete underdogs too.
3. Least favorite team - Liverpool and the chiefs
4. Worst sports memory - I’d say them last 13 seconds against the chiefs a few weeks back stayed up all night to watch it too

Awesome!

Yeah that Bills Chiefs game was absurd. Absolutely absurd.
