(Newser) – The New York Jets are playing the Miami Dolphins at London's Wembley Stadium Sunday—and though the Jets will only be overseas for 65 hours, the team is bringing a lot of stuff. The New York Times takes an amusing look:

  • 220 people in the delegation
  • 350 rolls of toilet paper (because the kind used in England is too thin)
  • 263 boxes or cases of food
  • 315 power devices, from extension cords to adapters

  • 472 pieces of athletic training supplies, from ice bags to tape
  • 2,683 pieces of equipment, from T-shirts to knee pads
  • 1,268 promo items, from mini helmets to key chains
