Anyone in London or been to London and watched the Vikes? Just found out I am traveling in 3 days and going nuts. Any help would be great. I am staying at 196 Bishopsgate in London. Looking for a pint and would buy a pint for a fan if they can send me to watch the game.

Keep the peace

The NFL is pretty big in the UK

Try on this site maybe.. NFL UK Forums - Powered by vBulletin (http://forum.nfluk.com/)

As it happens you're in luck regarding the Vikes game this weekend as it will be shown live on the regular terrestrial tv channel. It will be on Channel 4 ( often referred to as just 4 ) and the coverage starts at 01:00 UK time on Monday morning. So that will be available on the TV in your room for sure.

For future info you can catch NFL games at the Sports Cafe ( Sports Cafe London - Home Page (http://www.thesportscafe.com/london/index.aspx) ) but they will only show the two live games that are transmitted on Sky Sports ( which is the UK satellite provider ). This Sunday is the Panthers/Falcons and then Saints/Buccaneers.
Unlike the US we don't get the option to pick the game we want to see and have to rely on Sky Sports for the early/late game on a Sunday, C4 for the Sunday night game and ESPN ( available via cable and satellite ) for MNF.

For info for anyone reading this who is coming to the UK in the next couple of weeks.. the GB game on 23/10 and road game against Carolina on 30/10 are both on Sky Sports - so you will be able to see them :D

Hope you enjoy the game SGE and have a safe trip

Thank you again. I am going to be in London/Dublin for both the Bear and Slacker games. Here is going 2 - 0. Might have to find this bar so I can watch some football on Sunday.

Take care
