Well this wee bit is in the area of sports. Now personally, I LOVE arena football. It is just what the name suggests, football played indoors. Its fast, hard hitting, and is a very, very fan oriented sport that anyone can afford. ....well, if you like football anyway. NFL tickets cost a fortune, but I can go to arena home games for every time there is one. I can't say that about the other. Between mini fireworks, cool sound effects, the dancers, the jumbo tran, and all those neat souvenirs.....not to mention the food!!! I probably shouldn't mention the food. I am trying to lose some weight here. But I do have to admit, I cannot still see how a league managed to fold after being in operation for 20 years, and was backed by the NFL!!! Gone are teams like the Dallas Desperados.....which have been replaced with the likes of the Dallas Vigilantes. Hmmmmm....their uniforms seem really familiar. OH YEEAAAHHHH....Now I remember! The uniforms once were those of the Desperados. They simply put a new logo onto the helmet!! .......yeah.....ok. Well, if you have this sport in your area....you should check it out.....well, at least if you're a big fan of american football. Yes, I grew up playing rugby, but thats a blog for some other time. Granted, this indoor sport isn't for everyone. But wow. for the price?!?!? Its a great show! And the action is non stop.......especially since there really isn't an "out of bounds" area per se. Just a big, thick foam padded wall of sorts. And none of this, "Oh we're going to win 'cause there's only 10 seconds left on the clock, and we have the ball....so we can just take the knee". WRONG!!! If you have the ball & time is almost out, 2 options....either make yardage or go for a field goal, and pray to God you make it if you do. If that ball bounces back into the field of play from off the goal uprights, or falls short, it can be returned by the opponent. You can also watch afl games for free by downloading NiftyTV. They do most all afl games anyway. If you fancie this sport like I do, let me know. Oye! Even if you don't & you think its for pansies, let me know. You got something you wanna say?? Leave it on the wall!
