Well, week 4 saw the first of the 3 (yes, 3) NFL games in London this season. It’s an important season, because it’s the first time there have been 3 games, and one of them is a 1.30pm kick off, to test the market in the US for a breakfast kickoff.
So, I wanted to pick a moment from the game between Miami and Oakland, and the moment that struck me the most came early on – before kick off in fact!
The national anthems of both the USA and Great Britain were sung, and soprano Laura Wright sang God Save The Queen. Normally at sporting events, a soprano will go right up to the top notes at the end, but it’s changing the tune, the actual tune comes down at the end!
It’s a bug bear of mine, because it happens so often that people think this wrong version is actually how it goes – it isn’t!
I just find myself getting annoyed and wishingthe singer would just do the proper tune.
Lo and behold, Laura Wright sang the proper tune, which brought a smile to my face!
Roll on the next London game, which sees Detroit take on Atlanta, and I guess another moment of the week is that I got a ticket to the game! Having seen Atlanta on the ‘behind the scenes’ show called Hard Knocks, I decided that now would be the time to make the effort to get to a game, so I got a ticket – very excited!
Ok, let me know what you think!
‘Til Next Time,
