SuperBowl Night in Iceland
I was invited by NFL Sports Iceland to join a very large and enthusiastic group of Icelandic and some American fans of Football (the American kind) to watch Super Bowl XLVI. It was so great to see so many young people following the sport , enjoying it, and getting really excited about it. And did I mention, so knowledgeable about it as well? In fact, when I looked at the pop quiz that organizers passed around, I must confess that I did not know many of the answers. The locale where the event took place had so many TV screens that there was not a single spot in the place where one would not have a good look atthe game. My gratitude to Sverrir Juli for keeping the American football flame alive in Iceland.
