New York Jets NFL team ship toilet rolls to London

NFL team The New York Jets shipped their own toilet tissue to London for their clash with the Miami Dolphins earlier this month, because someone had warned them British paper was "very thin".

New York Times sports reporter Ben Shpigel was writing an article about the logistics of bringing the NFL team over and obtained the shipping list. It recorded 350 rolls of toilet paper along with other items such as breakfast cereal.

Shpigel told the BBC the toilet rolls were ordered for the players' use in the hotel and at Wembley Stadium, on the recommendation of an intern who had been to London a number of times. He is reported to have said: "The toilet paper was very thin because their plumbing isn't as good."
