When we received an invitation to go to London for an afternoon of bowling with NFL star and San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon we had to say yes!

We vlogged the day, you can watch our video here.

Meeting Melvin Gordon of the San Diego Chargers!

After an early morning train to London we went to the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes for the event.  The bowling lanes are set up in a traditional American style which was cool!  The invitation was for San Diego Chargers fans as Melvin was in the UK for the weekend and wanted to meet some UK fans.

Having watched the San Diego Chargers twice when we've been in San Diego as well as watching them countless times on the TV it was a great honour to meet a real-life player!  Last year Melvin Gordon was drafted in the first round by the Chargers as a rookie in the running back position.

Melvin arrived with no entourage and hosted the event himself.  Talking and joking with everyone.  It was a delight to meet him and see how down to earth he is, despite playing for a huge NFL franchise.

Once Melvin arrived it was time to start bowling!  It's been a long time since we've done any bowling. We had 2 games and the top 5 overall won a prize.  Keil finished in the top 5 and he was delighted to win a signed American football, Melvin had the ball signed by Quarterback Philip Rivers, Tight End Antonio Gates (who's jersey Keil was wearing on the day) Wide Reciever Keenan Allen before adding his own signature to the prize!

Once the game was finished it was time for a few photos and autographs before the event ended.  We went for some food and a couple of drinks before it was time to get the train back home.

We had a wonderful afternoon full of bowling, NFL talk and of course it was an absolute pleasure to meet Melvin Gordon!
