"I jump into a sand pit for a living"
Vikings at WembleyWhen the Minnasota Vikings met the Pittsburg Steelers at Wembley in the NFL International Series, Stuart was asked to arrange a chapel service for the Vikings. Rev Gary Piper, chaplain to Fulham FC spoke at the event in the team hotel a few hours before the game, with Stuart in attendance. Stuart and Gary's "fee" for the chapel was an invitation to attend the game.
It was an interesting and fascinating experience but the concept of a 60 minute stop-start-stop game which took 3 hours to complete took some getting used to.

Spot the ball!
Americans certainly know how to put on a spectacle
I suppose that is one place to collect autographs
