Folks, I've been working in the US Embassy in Poland for a bit over two years. I feared the worst with regards to my football addiction, but luckily AFN broadcasts almost all Auburn's truly critical games (8 times on AFN last year). Then I discovered that Poland has an American Football league, consisting of eight teams, including the Warsaw Eagles, so I've become a fan and can take my 12-year old son. American football is quickly gaining popularity in Poland, which is fascinated with all things American. The 2012 League championship was played in the beautiful new National Stadium, where many of the Euro Cup games were played. 25,000 fans showed up and others were turned away because the organizers hadn't predicted such a turn-out. The game was great (but all offense, no defense).
This week, I was happy to find out that they are holding a "Europe vs. America All-Star Football Game" in Warsaw on September 1st and they are expecting 40,000 fans. We'll be there, of course. I just looked at the rosters and noticed that the US roster includes a RB Wes Holland from North Alabama. That's Jake's older brother, right? Would be neat to give him a shout. I wonder if he takes "War Eagles?" War Eagle to All, MT in Warsaw
I just had a mental image of a concession stand selling pierogies and borscht.
been to that embassy before and remembered a great pizza joint a block or so from there as well as the underground shopping. looks like a good place to be for a few years, hope it is a good assignment for you.
I wish. The pierogi here is awesome. Unfortunately, the National Stadium concession is very "American"- hot dogs and stale nachos - but at least its only about half the price as in the US. WDE!
