Football season extended?!

Some of you may not realize that a large chunk of my life revolves around football. From the first regular season game through the Pro-Bowl, I track my team and players. Whenever football is on TV, I generally want to watch it, unless it’s two teams I could care less about and the game has no impact on the Green Bay Packers.

Now my football season may be extended, much to the chagrin of my understanding wife. It seems that Rockford has picked up an Indoor Football League team called the Raptors. Today, with my wife’s permission, I looked into purchasing season tickets.

I know it’s only Indoor or “Arena” football… but once February hits I tend to get depressed and that is a long time from February to September. This would fill part of that gap. Plus indoor football is better then no football!

Now if I could only get my season tickets to the Packers! I’m only 1051 away!

I've always thought indoor football could be pretty fun to watch.

I was checking out their website ( to see if I could find past scores for these guys, but couldn't find anything.
They have to lose pretty consistantly to fit in well with the other local teams ;)

I saw that and let me just say ARENA FOOTBALL ROCKS!! I am very excited about this.

It's a good thing. A very good thing!!

1051, huh? SO that's what? 30 years?

Well good, when I get my season tickets I know I'll add you to the list of possibles to give them to if I can't make a game.

CTG: that puts me about about 10 years.
