UPDATED INFO – August 2013

This is a “two-for-one” online class. It’s a combo teaching networking and the fundamentals of football. The purpose was to help people feel they could attend a game or party and participate in the conversation then and later around the watercooler.

It is unlikely you’ll be ready to be a football commentator after watching it.

As noted below the class is made from a live event.

DISCLOSURE – This event was filmed in front of a live audience at the British Consulate.

CBS Sunday Morning with Bill Geist filmed this event. There are times when there are multiple cameras angles but it’s not too distracting.

There were ~ 100 in attendance from 7 countries.
