Good read, Sean.  

 

Sounds like you had a good time despite the game

 

Just curious,  how tight was security?

Not very. It was much easier to get into Wembley than it is M&T. But that is probably because people weren't waiting for the very last minute to go into M&T, wanting more time at their tailgate or at the bar.

 

I was also thinking of how easy it would be to explode a bomb in the crowds heading into Wembley as there was no security on the outer perimeter of the stadium like there was at Super Bowl. Same thing occurred to me while in the crowds outside of the Ravens bar. Sad that those things have to be on your mind nowadays but it's the world we live in.

Thanks for sharing the experience.

 

Did they "Americanize" so to speak things at the game? Concessions like hot dogs, burgers, nachos. Or was it a lot of traditional things fish and chips? More Carlesburg, Bass, Boddington beers? Or Bud, Light, Miller, Coors, you know, American crap lol.

Carlsberg was the beer of choice from what I saw. I had a bunch (needed it) but the alc levels are lower. I tihnk it was around 3.5% so they must sell weaker beer in the stadiums because it's 5% normally. I also saw a lot of people walking around with 2-foot long sausages which actually looked really good. Definitely not the hot dogs and nachos you get here.
