When Blake Bortles punted the football into the stands at Londons Wembley Stadium, he was probably unaware just how special a catch it would make. Ersan Ilyasova Thunder Jersey .Underneath his kick in the British capital was a fan named Katie Edwards, who was lucky just to be in the ground, let alone on the receiving end of the Jacksonville quarterbacks punt.Edwards was at the Jaguars narrow victory over the Colts on Sunday as a volunteer to help fans find their way around the vast stadium -- a role that does not guarantee her a seat at the game.But a stroke of luck saw her grab a last-minute ticket in the third row and her afternoon was made even more special when Bortles celebratory punt following his second-quarter touchdown landed in her lap.My friend tried to catch [the ball], but it literally came right at me, Edwards, a 39-year-old personal assistant from London, told ESPN. Im a terrible catch, I used to play in defense, so the idea that not only have I managed to catch a ball, but Ive actually caught a punt from Bortles -- that just blows me away.I tried to get a ticket for the game, but of course it was sold out. Sometimes though, as a thank you for volunteering, we get given tickets. So I was really lucky to be there. That chair may have been empty if I hadnt been sat there.Speaking in his postgame media conference, Bortles admitted he hoped the ball would make a fitting souvenir for a British fan, but Edwards wasnt sure she would be able to keep it. A fan catching a ball at a Premier League soccer match, for example, is usually expected to return it.I wasnt sure what happened when they kick a ball into the crowd, Edwards said. Very quickly a lady came up to me asking me to give the ball back, which I did. But then a man said theyd replace it, so Ive actually got the practice ball.Im definitely going to keep it. Ill probably buy a case for it and keep it forever.The Jaguars have committed to playing a regular season game in London every year until 2020 and were nominally the home team against the Colts on Sunday.But the NFLs International Series is becoming known for the sheer range of fans that show up to the games, with almost every team represented by the jerseys in the stands.While she was rooting for the Jaguars on Sunday, Edwards admitted she is a Packers fan at heart, and revealed the touching story behind her choice of teams.Im a big NFL fan, she said. The Packers are my main team. Its quite an embarrassing reason, but Wisconsin is where Dungeons and Dragons was invented.When I was young I used to watch it on Channel 4 with my dad. Then I was looking for a team to support and Green Bay were from Wisconsin, I loved everything about Wisconsin, so it had to be Green Bay.A lot of fans Ive spoken to here have a primary team and then a secondary team. Thats kind of how I am. Ill always be a main Packers fan, but the Jags are my second team because theyve given so much to London and the sport in this country. Victor Oladipo Jersey . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. Mitch McGary Thunder Jersey . Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. http://www.thundershopauthentic.com/hoodie/ . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim.Trainer Adrian Keatley is considering a transatlantic voyage with Jet Setting following her thrilling victory in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday. Snapped up for the bargain-basement price of just 12,000 guineas last October, the daughter of Fast Company has proved the shrewdest of acquisitions.After winning a Cork maiden and a Group Three at Leopardstown, Jet Setting was ninth in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, but raised her game to emphatically reverse form with Minding at the Curragh. The Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot is her likely next port of call, but connections already have one eye on the autumn, with races in America and in Canada on Jet Settings agenda.Keatley said: Theres not a bother on her after the race - shes in great form.It was an unbelievable day and I dont think there was any fluke about it. The best filly on the day won.Ascot is the next option and if therres an an ease in the ground shell run there - even good ground would be fine. Victor Oladipo Thunder Jersey. Well take it one race at a time, but even before Sunday we were looking at possibly taking her to America later in the year.Theres the Flower Bowl Invitational at Belmont and a couple of weeks later theres the EP Taylor up at Woodbine.David Wachman ran Curvy in both races last year and it was something weve had in mind for a while as you can get some juice in the ground out there at that time of the year.
