The Frankfurt Galaxy have become the first NFL Europe franchise to win three World Bowls as they have defeated the Rhein Fire 35-16 in World Bowl XI at Hampden Park in Glasgow. The Galaxy jumped out to an 25-9 halftime lead and never looked back while cruising to their first title since 1999.
Running back Jonas Lewis rushed for 126 yard and a touchdown and was named the games MVP as the Galaxy's offense proved to be too much for the Rhein Fire defense to handle.

The NFL season in America runs from August (preseason games) to January (Super Bowl)...tickets are typically very hard to get and also ridiculously expensive as there arent that many games compared to other sports and due to the immense popularity of the NFL here...
As to an NFL Europe team versus a college...it would be interesting...fairly evenly matched I think, considering that most of the players are American and played in college but the fact that the NFLE players have a little more experience would have me lean towards them...

Not a bad crowd at Hampden for the game - around 28,100. This was higher than most of the attendances for the Euro 2004 soccer qualifiers last week, but only about half of the number that turned out to watch Scotland v Germany at the same stadium. About 10,000 Germans made the journey for the World Bowl. It made Page 11 of the sports section in the main nationals in Scotland.
Better crowd than I thought they'd get, but well down the list of priorities compared to the US Masters, Rugby tests, shinty and general fitbaw coverage in the media.
