I can't remember who had the idea but we once organised an American football match at St George's Lane stadium in Worcester. Chad will know this as it was the home of Worcester City football club until recently. Sadly the ground has now been demolished and houses are being built on the site.
Still back to the story. We had to go and mark up the pitch with the many white lines required to indicate that one side or the other had gained 6 inches.
As I recall we had a reasonable crowd turn up. We took the kids and endured about 45 minutes of mind numbing boredom. Suddenly one player caught the ball practically at his end of the pitch and went off like a rocket the full length scoring the equivalent of a try.
This must have been in the late 80s
