So the China Bowl isn't officially a Preseason game?

Yeah, coulda sworn I heard it was cancelled.

No sense in going overseas. Football is at it's peak, no sense in trying something that will be a resounding failure (imo)

I don't know if it would have been a "resounding failure"...

I actually think it could've garnered quite a bit of interest, considering that China-US relations have warmed up over the past decade, and Chinese are becoming more and more westernized. And the fact that the NFL would have probably advertised this game thoroughly in mainland China.

Personally I just don't think the Chinese would care much for a preseason game which is going to be treated like it's the super bowl by NFL Execs.

If they care about football, they'll tape it and watch it. (Assuming our games are on when they're asleep :))

Baltimore Washington game is always fun, the time to remind them DC boys by how much our team is better.
First the federal government borrowed money; then gave the money to Bank of America; then I borrowed some of that money from Bank of America and gave it to the federal government; then the federal government gave the money back to Bank of America.
