As Head coach of the Cornish Sharks American football team, I'm proud of the Cornish Players that went and played in the minor league hall of fame game in Las Vegas USA . from the 5th to thew 12th of dec 2006.
This has showed the agents and scouts that there are American football players in Cornwall. to see the Cornish Flag raised before the game was a hugh buzz.
the two Cornish players were Andy Dixon the Rugby player for the Newquay Hornets, and Danile Hills from Newquay, the other Sharks players came from Devon,
Andy impressed many of the coach's as he has only been playing for 6 months. I,m glad to announce that the Cornish Sharks have been asked again to send players to the game in Dec 2007 in Las Vegas.
if your up for it then come along to the Team training camp on the 14th of Jan 2007.

Most Las Vegasians will be about as familiar with Kernow and St. Piran's flag as most Californians are. The California Cornish Cousins and people of Grass Valley (North Eastern California) are the exception to this, since they have reason to know differently. But kudos for making it over and raising some curiocity - at least - about Kernow and Cornishmen. Unfortunately, for the most part, we're still all grouped as 'Englishmen', rather than a minority people from the British Isles. I take issue with people almost on a daily basis about this.

Superbowl day here today. Best day of the year for freeway driving and supermarket shopping!

and, let's face it, American football is the biggest pile of shite on the planet - even the Canucks only need three downs before they're bored!



Magnificent quote from the 'Bard' Stonefly - I didn't know they played American football in his day!
