Rams 3 Year Commitment To The UK

So I got an email today from NFL UK which informed me that the St. Louis Rams have agreed to host one of their home games in London for the next 3 years. The first game will be on October 28th against the New England Patriots. Being from London this information excites me... if only it was the Redskins agreeing to do this!

I love that interest in the NFL is gradually starting to grow again here in the UK and I look forward to many more teams taking this step. I understand that diehard American fans might be upset about this as they might have to miss a home game because they can't afford the airfare but in my opinion it's excellent progress. It shows the great influence a great sport can have all over the world, not just in America.
