In Qatar Dreaming of the NFL

by on November 20, 2008 updated April 19, 2014

 OK, so I’m sitting in the air terminal on a military base in Qatar. I’m waiting for a flight to Afghanistan, and watching a news report on MLS soccer. My traveling companion, a Columbian by birth, is expounding on the virtues of the World Cup and which teams will make it. All I’m thinking is “Where’s the beer?”. You see, Qatar is about the only place around here where you can acyually have a drink. Since I haven’t seen or tasted REAL beer in over 4 months, it’s at the top of my list. One cold beer, one NFL FOOTBALL game.
