Default One game to rule him on all...

Sorry for the bad LOTR reference...couldn't help myself. I currently have a friend visiting from the Netherlands who knows absolutely nothing about "American football." He is willing to watch one game to let me try to explain the rules. Which game should I use? Of course, I would prefer the Gamecocks to be involved, but I really would like something that will be both fun to watch and easy to educate a novice. I just can't choose...

Helpful...but he's driven in Europe, so I don't think anything like that would be educational.

Well, I had kind of hoped for something useful...if it was 2 weeks later, I would have tried to take him to the UNC game.

Find one of those legends of the NFL videos were the guy with the great voice and symphony music plays and he talks about the grit and come backs and what not. Those memories from my childhood are what make football the end all be all of sports for me.

No pro bowls are terrible, they make american football look like a joke. you could go with the LSU-Bama angle since they are low scoring, dude being from across the pond and probably a soccer fan might like that angle.

I know they're terrible...unwatchable without an enormous amount of alcohol in your system...but a bama/lsu might be a good pick

I have kind of had the USC/UGA 2011 game in my head after watching some older pump up vids, but it's hard to argue against USC/Bama.

Default Re: One game to rule him on all...

I'd explain the rules outside of a game, then watch the game, pausing when he had questions. And I would show the Outback bowl, for a few reasons:
-You want a current game with current rules (challenges, replays, etc.)
-You want an exciting game
-You want to show blown calls
-You want to show the Gamecocks

Default Re: One game to rule him on all...

I've taken many foreigners to games, and the best thing you can do is:

1. Take them to a tailgate and get them drunk.
2. Find a sexy southern girl to talk to them during the tailgate.
3. Take them to a BIG game and Get to the stadium 25 minutes early.
4. Let them watch the game and ask you questions.
5. After the game. Take them back to the tailgate, and hope they score with said sexy southern girl.

All of this equals football fan for life.
