"BBD2 in the UK"
Just to let y’all know that BBD2 fever spread to the UK, and we just finished watching the finale that aired last night (it airs at an even worse time over here 0100). Big kudos to Exodus for riding out a deserved victory, and commiserations to Cake for coming up short.

Myself and some other football (not soccer) crazed UK based fans usually find ourselves out in the US every fall, racing round different NFL and college campuses taking in games. That’s pretty knackering in itself – God knows what it’s like without good food or a good bed! One year we were shooting a video diary for a UK TV station, and since we had no accreditation we had to beg a few favours from some NFL teams. Most of time it went OK, however there was one notable exception that seemed to ring true in BBD2 – Chicago!

Enjoyed reading the contestants posts here – offers a lot of extra insight that isn’t obvious due to the editing. Keep up the good work! One thing I wondered though, were there any rides the teams couldn't take because of the requirement to fit 5 people in rather than just 4 since the producer always had to be there?

1. "RE: BBD2 in the UK"
Hey Preston -

ya know - we were extremely lucky in our methods of transportation. To review:

Jeep Cherokee
Private Jet
Jeep Cherokee again..
Land Rover

Chevy Tahoe
Hyundai Santa Fe
Mercedes (not shown)
Toyota Land Crusier
Hummer

Jeep Liberty
Chevy Blazer

things just worked out. There were a couple times (one in Chicago) that we were all crammed in a ford escort - but it was only for a 10 minute ride...we got pretty damn lucky -

glad you dig the show


greg

Thanks for replying Greg. Too bad you missed out on the stretch limo eh

Some more questions if you don't mind. Since it was May, what was up with that ice fishing task? And the one in the Diamondbacks stadium? As good as that hot tub sounds, surely if you'd ended up in Arizona you would have been way off course! Were there any of the remaining tasks that stuck out as stuff you wanted to do but it just wasn't feasible to make it happen?

actuallt - we did have a stretch limo ride. THe Maloof brothers had a stretch navigator waiting at the airpoet to take us to a hotel....woops, forgot about that!

The ice fishing task was on the list only because the show was originally supposed to end in Alaska. At the last minute, the show organizers changed the final destination to Mt. Rushmore...I guess Canada is a bigger barrier for stuff like this than initially thought.

The Diamondbacks task -- though cool, would've taken us way off course, you're right. But who the hell thought we could do a task in California and still win the game?

As far as other tasks go - man, just look at the list. Every one is unique and challenging and would've been great to do. Taking the field during batting practice was one that I wanted to do...fly fishing with an NFL all-pro very cool idea as well. Tough to say what else - they all would've been great to try.

4. "OK, however there was one notable exception that seemed to ring true in BBD2 – Chicago! "
Preston welcome to the boards...I am happy that the UK got to see this fun program. However, please do not slam Chicago...it is the greatest city in the USA. I have not lived in NYC and choose not to because this is a big city with a lot of heart. Don't forget the Chi-town QB who made not only one trip but two to help them get the task done. It is too bad you didn't get to see BB&D I; the Cubs let them sing the national anthem at the start of the game. I suspect that whoever did that favor got into major trouble and couldn't let them do it again (although who knows why, it would be good PR for the team, but then again this team hasn't won a World Series in almost 100 years and are still going strong, (go figure)).

Once again, welcome to the boards (we are very nice and civilized).

travelingbetty - I think you've misunderstood my comment but sorry if you took offense! I love the Windy City and have had good times there both times I've been. What I was trying to say in my post, what that the only trouble we had when we had to blag our way past security with cameras and stuff, was at the Bears game. No big deal, but the incident came to mind when Cake were having their struggles at Wrigley!

...that UK has their own BB&D series? In case this is true, good luck and I hope we have it shown stateside. No offense taken, I just had to stick up for my adopted city. And I lived less than two blocks from Wrigley for at least thirteen years that I have been in this great city.

7. "Technical details"
In BB&D Classic, Team Cobi threw out the first pitch at a White Sox game and sung the national anthem at Miller Park, in Milwaukee. They didn't do anything with the Cubs.
