It was a work night and it was a pre-season game, but this didn’t stop plenty of people from making the trek from Manhattan over to New Jersey to watch the New York Jets play the Philadelphia Eagles.
This was only my third time watching a NFL game, and my first time watching it live. Tonight there were a lot of people in the crowd who were watching the game live for the first time. The crowd that went to the game is very similar to the crowd of an NRL match – some bogans, some drunks, and people passionate about the game. The game stops a lot for timeouts and “TV breaks” which to me makes the game drag out for way too long. But it was an interesting game and the Jets won. Woohoo!
