London game

Koldegaard : 9/15/2022 12:32 pm
Hi guys

Well I guess I just have to pay the insane amount it costs to go to the game :-D

Who is coming to the game?

It would be awesome to meet up - I met some fantastic BBI'ers back in 07.

DCPollaro is out -- he's scheduled to have a baby DCPollaro right around game time
Hi Gide  
Koldegaard : 9/15/2022 12:36 pm : link
Yeah I saw that :-) The world will be a better place with a Mini Pollaro

Are you coming?
I can't -- I wish I could

...
I'll be there. We have credits left over from a cancelled flight  
mikeinbloomfield : 9/15/2022 12:38 pm : link
so the whole fam is going, but me and the son are going to the game.

I am following a group on Facebook (New York Giants Fans UK (@NYGiantsFansUK)), it looks like they are setting up something around the game.

We can't wait!

Aw that sucks. I will come back to NY in the near future.

Mike thanks 🙏 I will look into that.
I can't go either

parent company is shoving multiple projects my way, I had to fire one lazy lying engineer and then my right hand man submitted his resignation. Sooooo ... I'll be buried and probably job hunting before long. I've got six months of hell lined up, and probably more.

That sucks :-(

in thet past there was a rally at a designated Giants bar  
PatersonPlank : 9/15/2022 2:22 pm : link
I haven't seen anything yet, is there one?

The Packers have one near Tower Bridge.
We're there ...

There are also a few people trying to sale tickets in the group above ... they are tring to sale to NY fans ... One guy is do a non-profit sale (face value tickets I believe) ... he is trying to figure out a fair way to get rid of them (other than 1st come 1st serve) so the window is still open
the Giants and Packers are two of the most popular teams over there  
PatersonPlank : 9/15/2022 2:56 pm : link
If you look at the prices, the other games are at face value or $100s less per ticket. I think you can go to the Jax game for $70.

Koldegaard : 9/22/2022 7:59 am : link
The prices are going down now.

I will be in 504 row 4.

Hope to see some of you there.


Has there been any announcement of where the Giants bar is?  
PatersonPlank : 9/22/2022 11:05 am : link
Usually every NFL team has a bar where fans, ex-players, media, all hang out for a day. The Packers bar is Belushi's London Bridge.
Haven't heard anything  
Koldegaard : 9/22/2022 3:50 pm : link
Maybe it will be in that UK group on Facebook

What type of engineer? Civil or Computer type engineer?
I went in 2016, it was awesome.

I wish I could make it this time, but I'll be looking forward to the next one in 5-10 years.
Meet Up  
GetsByBuckner : 9/23/2022 9:44 am : link
There is a meet up at Wapping Tavern, 78-80 Wapping Ln, London E1W 2RT on Saturday, 10/8, 7pm-Late.

Hosted by the UK Giants & Big Blue UK IRL Podcast.

No ticketing. Free.

Just drink some pints, watch college football, and hand w. Giant fans, it seems.

I have no affiliation with these folks. I'm just on a FB Group that posted this. There is a photo w. info, i just don't know how to post.

FYI.

GBB!
