I'd definitely like to see an NFL game live, and NBA. Always ended up in America in the off season.

You'll get tickets to the Sixers no problem.

You don't want to go to an NFL game anyway. Just find a good bar for it.

It's just for the experience. Chances are I'll not get to one again. Seems a waste to not do it while I'm there. Have heard (possibly from you), that there's a lot of dickheads at football games and a lot of standing about doing f*** all. :lol:
14-2 for the Colts this season. I can feel it.

Yeah, knowing what you're walking into and doing it just for the experience is fine. It's more of an issue for people who think that they're going to go and get a good view of what's happening on the field and really be able to pay attention that are in for a shock.

You allowed to drink in your seat at NFL?

Yes

Selling beer and food is the main reason they let people into the stadium.

Vomiting in your seat is also allowed.

Having been to a Giants game I can say apart from the tailgating it was the worst American sports experience I've had, the usual replay and commentary during the huddle you see on TV is just silence or some dummers in the stadium filling the void.

Football is one of the few sports I prefer to watch on TV than go to an actual game.

Going to New York, Boston and Washington for 10 nights at the start of October. Other than the obvious stuff, any recommendations of places to go/see/do?

When you're in New York there's a secret burger place in Le Meridian Hotel that's worth checking out. If you get inside the hotel and think that there's no possible way you're in the right place, then you're definitely in the right place. It's hidden in some random corner behind a curtain.

If you don't know your whole order by the time you get to the till they send you to the back of the line. It's reminiscent of the soup nazi.

If you're in Boston on Friday 7th, get yourself to a bar called Whiskey Priest. I had one of the best nights of my life in there last year.
They have a live band playing and they're absolutely brilliant

Whats the best way to book a trip to New York? I was there last year but I never booked it. There's 3 of us going in November and at the minute we're looking at £400 each on the flights then find a hotel after that. Is a travel agent better? I'm finding it difficult finding rooms for 3 people even if one is a sofa bed.
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.” - Sir Bobby Robson
