The NFL is heading to China

Posted in American football at 3:33 am by Nicole

The Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will play a pre-season game in Beijing in 2007. Whispers of an NFL game in China have been making the rounds for months but the official announcement was finally made this weekend. A great choice of teams, especially for your CSB correspondent, who went to university in Boston and spent almost ten years there…and who has now relocated to Seattle. Who do I cheer for? Oh, the angst! At least, I have almost a year to figure it out…the game will be held on August 8, 2007, exactly one year before the opening ceremonies for the Beijing Olympics.
