I’m a Manchester United fan. Went to my first game as a two year old with my Dad. Was able to take my eldest son his first game last year when he turned three with my dad also which was pretty cool. 
 

Luckily enough to sell diamonds and other precious stones. We also have a big business in the second hand market and gold bullion which is a busy, as is repairs. 
 

We like to visit Florida once a year but have mixed in some different Caribbean islands over the last few years as our main vacation for the year.

Yes it’s very easy and inexpensive to travel around Europe. My father is Italian and we visit there very frequently. We went very recently for a few nights to see family and our combined expenses for myself my wife and our two boys was £140 which included plane tickets etc. So very easy to get around Europe.

We had a beautiful German Shepard that we rescued from Thailand. Her name was Xena, and that’s when I created my account so it was fitting really. 
 

Erm...the obvious sight seeing jobs in London is a must. Any Harry Potter fans should check out the studios in Watford which is very good. 
 

Also if you were able to get tickets (v. difficult) for a Manchester United vs Liverpool match then that’s without doubt the best sporting event we put on imo

Iv just turned 30 😬

Been with my wife since we were 16 which is cool. 

Not sure on combine numbers as I only really played sports that were popular in the Uk. I played football (soccer) to a decent standard. Made it pro but by the time I was 22 I realised I wouldn’t have a proper career in it. My claim to fame was I finished second in a Nike speed drill when I played with and without the ball. 
Second only to Cristiano Ronaldo 😏

Yeah it was a good ride while it lasted to be fair. Very lucky to have played in some awesome stadiums both here and in Europe. 
 

Being in the north west of England the four big teams are Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool & Everton. I had trials with all four teams and then  I was signed to Everton at 6 years of age and then at 11 signed for Bolton. 

Unfortunately after dropping down the leagues as I got older the love and hunger had complete gone. I’d already began in the family business and playing semi pro and working was too much. Called it quits and barely kicked a ball since. 
 

Actually as luck would have it I then regained my love and interest in martial arts. My grandfather was a second degree black belt in Karate and had taught me since about 3yrs of age.

Started BJJ about a year ago and fell in love with it. Had my first major no-gi competition lined up for June which more than likely will be cancelled due to recent events. I train 5 mornings a week, 5:45-7:15am so back in time before anyone’s up in the morning so fits in nice with my lifestyle.

If there's one silver lining to this quarantine BS, I've liked seeing some of the people from '06 era pop in recently lol. Our lives are bound to get back to normal but hopefully some of you stay around for the draft/2020 season. 

Anyway, @xenajets I could imagine it being kind of fun living in the UK with other NFL fans; kind of makes me think about my college days when it was a melting pot of people who rooted for different teams. So two questions:

  1. How do you spend your Sunday's - in solitude, at a Jets bar, or with a bunch of fans with different teams?
  2. How often (if ever) do you go to Jets games?
