The Americans show the British how it's done at Wembley
I'm getting excited about our return to Wembley Stadium on Saturday for the Saracens, Harlequins tie (with a McFly pre-match). The last time we were at the stadium was for the once yearly visit the American NFL pays to the UK. The San Francisco 49ers were playing the Denver Broncos and travelling thousands of miles for a match did not mean that they would not put on a show.
And what a show, the Americans sure know how to make an entrance. There were flashing lights, fire canons, hot air balloons, flags, cheerleaders and it would not be complete without the Star Spangled Banner - sung by Michelle Williams who was taking part in Strictly that year - reverberating around the stadium. Brilliant.
