May 26, 2006
Ok, so I'm copying Lorna with the capital letter title thingy but it got my attention so here goes…
Ok, so as most of you know already I am manic about American Football and I am aware that I am in a minority here. I am also aware that there's Rugby on the telly on Sunday and that it is a Sunday and should be spent in bed but go with me here.
On Sunday at 2.30pm the Coventry Cassidy Jets (your local team for those of you at Warwick) will be playing the Birmingham Bulls at home. This means that one of the most important games of the 2006 season is going to be played on Sunday in the Butts arena in Coventry. The Jets are 14 games undefeated and, having just moved up to Division 1A and played their first game of the season last week (thrashing Staffordshire Surge 39–0 away) they now face the best team in the Division, local rivals Birmingham. Although you might be unaware of it there's a lot of rivalry between Birmingham and Coventry teams so this game is a really important one for the Jets. If they can beat the Bulls they can look forward to more wins this season.
So with that in mind it's important that they get the support they deserve. They should be able to pack out the Butts Arena but they need your help. You may not understand the game, you may not care about American Football, you may think it's Rugby with pads on but don't knock it til you've tried it. This is a game that's making a big comeback in this country and it's your chance to see two of the best teams in the country battle it out. It promises to be a good game, possibly very high scoring and without doubt it's going to be a game that comes right down to the wire, every play is going to matter.
So even if you've never even seen American Football before, if you don't think you could understand it but if you need to get out for a few hours on Sunday, escaping revision or maybe your exams are over get in touch!! You can buy tickets on the Jets website Coventry Cassidy Jets but hopefully there will also be tickets available on the day. Get in touch with me by email if you fancy giving this a try, I'll be getting the bus from Leam and can meet people on Campus or in Cov and I'll explain the rules as we go along if needed.
Tell everyone!!! It's going to be awesome!!! GO JETS!!!
