Going to Wembley.

The National Football League (NFL) received 1/2 million ticket requests within 72 hours when it announced that one regular season game was to be played in London in 2007. I also registered my interest on the NFL homepage, though not quite within 3 days.

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail notifying that I had been selected, by lottery, and was now entitled to purchase tickets in the second round of sales, beginning September 12 at 10.00 AM. The e-mail also stated that there where more applicants than seats available.

So this morning I sat ready in front of my computer and logged in at precisely 10.00 AM. I got through and for the ridiculous price of £45 ($90, €66) I am now the "proud" owner of one ticket to see the Miami Dolphins vs. New York Giants at Wembley stadium the 28th of October.

Turns out I was one of the lucky ones. The 10.000 tickets set on sale today were sold within 5 minutes.

p.s. special message to Karlund: I tried to buy two tickets so you could come with me, but they only offered me one. Sorry ;-(
