Although, I am not a Seahawks fan myself (i'm from NYC), you can't spit in a MS office without hitting a SeaHawks fan. I went to school in Boston so I would have to claim Patriot favoritism. The first ever NFL game to be held in China will be held in Beijing on Aug 8, 2007. I hope that the writers for the Patriots website learn to spell Beijing correctly before that (sic).

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was on hand at Gillette Stadium Sunday night. In a press conference held before the Patriots-Broncos game, Goodell announced that the Patriots and the Seahawks will play in the first NFL game in China – the world’s fastest growing market – when the teams meet in Bejing on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2007.


Officially titled the “China Bowl,” by the NFL, the game will be held at Workers Stadium. The game will be played exactly one year before the 2008 Olympics begin in Bejing. Workers Stadium will be the site of the soccer competitions during the Olympics.

I wonder if pro football players will still stick out here.
