What an exciting day, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Denver Broncos and make it to the Superbowl. I have been an avid fan for many years and love watching a good ole American football game. I live in New Zealand and manage to watch quite a few games on the sports channels. But there is nothing like watching a game with friends or at a sports bar cheering for your team. In New Zealand we have Rugby, the mighty All Blacks, great to watch, but just not the same.

I was hoping there may be someone like me out there looking for some like minded American football fans in New Zealand with any tips on where to watch the game. So, I can understand the lady from Alaska. It's not easy when your team heads to the Superbowl and you want someone to cheer them on with you. My Kiwi husband will be helping me, but who knows there may be others out there. GO STEELERS!!!
