And of course, there's our currently unbeaten American football outfit - the Denver Broncos. Football is almost a religion in many parts of the country, so it pains a lot of people to miss it while they're off on their cheap travel holidays across the globe. But there's good news for any of my fellow countrymen planning a trip to visit London hostels this month, as the NFL is heading to the UK!
For the third year in a row, the capital's Wembley stadium is hosting a regular season game. The inaugural one, which saw the New York Giants face off against the Miami Dophins, represented the first time such a matchup was held outside North America.
Last year the San Diego Chargers and the New Orleans Saints flew the flag, but the game on October 25th could be the most popular yet as the participants - the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - have won four Super Bowls between them in recent years!
If you're not staying in London hostels around the time of what is likely to be an incredibly atmospheric event, you may still be able to catch some American football. That's because the capital actually has some teams of its own, with the London Blitz recently reaching the BritBowl - the UK equivalent of the Super Bowl - only to miss out on the top prize to the Coventry Jets.
