London - Anyone Going?
#1
My wife has wanted to go for years. If I can swing the money, I'm considering it.

Anyone else?

If you all hear of any "package deals" let us know!

Probably. 
It's not that far for me though.

From the article about playing the Rams in London on the home page--

The Bengals have partnered with On Location Experiences, the official hospitality partner of the National Football League, to be the official travel partner for this season’s international series game in London.

Fans will be able to follow the Bengals to London for an incredible weekend packed with unique experiences and plenty of football. Official Fan Travel Packages, powered by PrimeSport, will include hotel accommodations, pregame brunch, game tickets, guided tours, deluxe transportation, official souvenirs and more.

$250/person sounds like a great deal.  Though, you'd likely need another $1000 for a couple to actually enjoy themselves and take advantage of the tourism aspect of the trip.

That's just the deposit, it's thousands more once you get into the details.

Looked at it earlier... it's expected to be upwards of 4 grand per person.

Gotta move further along in the process and you'll find out that the $250 is just a deposit, which is refundable. You won't actually find out what the package prices are until the different packages are announced.

You will be contacted once package offerings are finalized with the ability to select your preferred package or cancel your order and receive refund for deposit paid.

Hell we don't go to games at PBS. Why the hell would we go all the way to London to watch the Bengals?

With the current political state of affairs in London now it could errupt into padamonium, chaos and rioting at any time OR they could figure out some kind of solution to avoid it all. Personally I'm not quite ready to take that kind of chance just to go watch an American football game in a city I may or may not be welcome...
An old Taxi dispatcher i knew was born in the US and raised in East London. His accounts of things about how Americans were treated at the time didn't seem all that welcoming..Potatoes filled with razor blades flying around doesn't sound like my idea of a good time.. The Brits take their rioting pretty serious over there from what I can tell..But then again who doesn't take rioting seriously? 
This is the absolute last signature change I'll ever make...right up until the next one. The last will be just as soon as someone pays a funeral director on my behalf.

I don't believe that will be the case.

No doubt. Canada is off the charts.
