Arena Football

  • If you have nothing better going on (face it, you don't) turn on CBS Network tonight and watch the undefeated SPOKANE SHOCK take on the Tampa Bay Storm.

    My buddy aptly described Arena Football as the NFL taken over by a Japanese game show. It is silly and ridiculous and fun. It's the off-season so why not give it a shot???

    The Shock are 5-0 and led by QB Eric Meyer the former EWU star who was in the Seahawks camp a few years ago. He's playing lights out. Tampa Bay is led by QB Adrian McPherson who is one of the true running threat QBs in the league (where 95% of the plays are passing).

    Arena Football is stupid and ridiculous and entertaining if you just let yourself sit back and enjoy. Why not root for your home state Spokane Shock? After all, Spokanites have no problem root for Seattle teams.

    Live on National TV. Face it, you have nothing else to do.

    And if you're ever in Spokane and want to take in a game, just let me know!

  • I havnt watched an arena league game for a few years but did have season tickets for a couple years back when we had the Portland Forrest Dragons. Its definatly not big time football, but it is highly entertaining in person.

  • I was there.

    I'm a Season ticket holder and the beginning was attrocious.

    In the Arena game you cant win a game when you throw two INTs and fail to capitalize on multiple drives.

    In the AFL is 95% Offense, 5% Defense

  • I used to go to a lot of Milwaukee Mustang games, when I lived in Wisconsin and they still existed in the AFL.

  • One of my wife's friends in college was a Shock cheerleader. God, she was smokin hot. Went to a few games when she was living in Spokane.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • Yesterday on Bob and Groz they were talking about Tebow getting an offer from the Omaha Beef. I can't say that team name without laughing.

  • Wait, that's where Adrian McPherson has been?! Still remember the day he got ran over by the golf cart driven by the Titans' mascot like it was yesterday.

    But you're telling me, a team actually won a game with him at quarterback? A few years ago he didn't even know how to line-up under center to even take the snap! :lol:

  • Its where crappy players go to be less crappy. Or the ultra rare gem goes to be found by the NFL (Kurt Warner, Isiah Trufant).
