The NFL in Poland?

Well, not exactly

But we hope some day -- maybe I'll even get to see it -- the league whose games begin this weekend will be spread across the country, drawing large crowds to watch top-quality games with top-quality players, maybe even ones who are paid.

Poland's first (American) football league begins play this weekend, as the Warsaw Eagles face off against the Wielkopolska Fireballs. The two other teams in the league are The Wrocław Crew and the Pomorze Seahawks. All the teams will play each other once, and then meet up for a championship tournament in Warsaw on November 12.

Read the Warsaw Business Journal article or listen to the Radio Polonia report.

So if you're in Łódź this weekend, why not come out, have some fun, and maybe watch a little bit of history? (find time and location here)

Oh yes, and by the way:

Go Eagles!

Go Fireballs! (Sorry Gustav, but they've got so much heart!)
