Austria's Game of Thrones NFL Intro Shows America How to Do a Pre-Game

American football isn't just popular in America. It's also an attraction in Austria, whose PULS 4 network concocted this Game of Thrones-style introduction for the two conference championships the NFL plays today. It beats Cleatus, that doofus Fox Sports robot, by a mile, er, several kilometers.

PULS 4 also went American-style with its pregame coverage, too, offering some eight hours of it yesterday. The games begin at 3 p.m. EST with New England at Denver, followed by San Francisco at Seattle at 6:30.

I don't speak German and Google translate is imprecise here, but the text more or less says that the heroes of the land are gathering, all want to be champion, and today will decide who will claim the throne. Sounds like one of Chris Kluwe's quests from last year.

I have never heard of a European who watches American Football, unless they are also American or lived there for a really long time, and I've been all over the place there (and lived in the UK and Germany all my life)
