Im Sam from Stamford, England! Im 23 and went back to University at Lincoln University with one of the main reasons to extend my Football Playing Career by another few years before riding off int othe sunset Hollywood style (Or probably on crutches after blowing out a knee or something ) Previous played Football at the University of East Anglia, but left due to the wrong course!!

I'm the Vice President of My University Team (god help the rookies comes september ), played MLB last year but moving to play TE this year as I have good hands (many years of playing goalkeeper in soccer had to help). I live with 14 other of my Brothers in a Team House, which will be providing some entertainment I'm sure esp with fans of most teams in there! My QB is from Pittsburgh so that is pretty sweet, not many guys over here can say they played with an American QB, so looking forward to that a lot!!

Ummm, yeh, not sure what else to say. Been an NFL fan for more years than I can remember, looking forward to seeing the International Series Game in London again this year and getting over to see the Steelers next year now probably. Pretty much a fan of most sports as I like to keep fit and health, so do alot of cycling and Basketball!

Oh i love Sundays, Play the game in the day, come back get the beers ready and watch Sunday night Football..unless playing on a Monday when we do it all 2 nights a week!!

Many Thanks for the welcome :)

I know i said it before, but trying to do a degree and run the University Football team takes sooooo much time but will all be worth it in 9 days time when we win the opening game.

Will hopefully get more posting done then... and hope to see the game this sunday after I get to a pub from the NFL London game! Roll on another W!
