NFL exports football — but more important, the tailgate — to England

Today's light note:

It may not be the golf course at War Memorial Park, but the New York Times has a good feature on the effort to create a tailgating experience at the Vikings-Steelers game at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday.

The Brits don't know from tailgating, apparently. Doesn't happen at soccer games. So they rolled in food trucks with nachos, cheese steak sandwiches and American beer (about $7 per cup) for the crowd. In Little Rock fashion, you didn't have to have a ticket to the game to attend the tailgate party.

The YouTube above isn't pro quality, but it rounds up a lot of the NFL hoopla in London, particularly a street party on Regent Street.
