Tampa BayWatch – My Thoughts on the Bucs

UK to get another NFL Game

leave a comment »

So Wembley 07 has sparked some interest in another trip to this side of the pond and if this article is to be believed then its going to be the Saints and the Chargers that will be making the trip. This has all the makings of a great game, if the weather decides to be better than the Fins Giants game. So will Shawne Merriman get to do his “Lights Out” sack dance on the hallowed Wembley turf. An official announcement is due sometime this week.

The Chargers will play the New Orleans Saints at Wembley Stadium in London on Oct. 26, sources confirmed today.
“We want to go,” Chargers president Dean Spanos said. “I’m cautiously optimistic.”

Sources said the Chargers have been speaking with the league for more than two months about the game. Spanos is a member of the league’s International Committee.

This will be the second regular-season NFL game played outside North America. The New York Giants and Miami Dolphins played at Wembley Stadium this past October.

The game will be the Chargers’ eighth next season, and they will have a bye the next week. New Orleans will be the home team, so the Chargers still will have eight regular-season home games at Qualcomm Stadium.

Will we see Merriman dance at Wembley ?
