    I know this sounds a little crazy... but the time between the end of football in February, to the start of preseason in August, feels virtually never ending to someone living abroad. There is nary a trace of American culture here in Taiwan (cept a Starbucks and a Micky D’s), so keeping up with the NFL season both on Gotitans with y’all and via streaming football with NFL game pass is the closest thing I have to home sometimes.

    This year the offseason looked daunting... but flying back to Nashville with my wife and meeting up with the gang for the Draft (in the VILLE!) was one of those life affirming moments that will help carry me through countless off seasons to come. Man that was epic as f*{<.

    Shout out to AAS for bringing one of the best fan bases in sports a truly memorable time we’ll be telling our grandkids about.

    Seasons around the corner boys. Gettin ready to log back in witcha and will our boys to victory!

    February to August feels never-ending for us here too lol




    I have been there, living in Asia having to watch games at 1 am lol.


    At least the NBA is huge where I lived, biggest sports league, so I did get that aspect of North American culture. And there are NFL fans there.

    I know what you mean. I lived in Sweden for only 6 months and ate nothing but American fast food for like a week after I got back. You don't notice the little things until you leave. I would assume it is worse in Taiwan.

    Are you there for work or did you just decide you wanted to live there?

    Yeah man it sucks. No other way around it. It's like they discovered sausage, liver, and potatoes... Then decided that was the pentacle of food and stopped all innovation lol.

    Like I said though Sweden is a straight westernized country and I was still feeling homesick from the culture difference. I would imagine long stays in a place like Taiwan would be much worse, so kudos for being able to make it happen @Dangermode.

    Football is right around the corner.

    Thats not surprising to hear. The further from the equator the worse the food seems to get.

    My brother-in-law's sister is married to a Swedish guy and lives in Stockholm. She made his whole family a traditional North American Christmas dinner for the extended family while my sister and her husband was there. The Swedish family had zero interest in it lol. They wanted their gross fishy stuff.

    Pretty much the same out here in Dubai. Basketball has a decent following, but not a football town by any means.

    The struggle is real :)
