So excited!

Tomorrow is a big day. Iíve been counting the days for a while now in anticipation. Now I could tell you that tomorrow is important because itís Cloneís birthday, and I guess that wouldnít be wrong. But thatís not why Iím so excited. Tomorrow is the first day of football season!

Wait, did I say football season? Yes I did. The Rock River Raptors have their first game tomorrow night. I bought my season tickets again this year, the same incredible seats I had last year. Now I know some people say that Arena football is not real football. They would be wrong. Sure the field is shorter and there are fewer players on the field, but they hit just as hard, if not harder. Remember they are playing on lightly padded concrete and constantly are run into walls and flipped into the stands. These guys get hit so hard that you can feel it in the stands. A lot of these players played college ball or are trying to get into the NFL. They work hard and trust me; they are worthy of the respect that should go toward any athlete.

Iíve completely thrown myself onto the Raptor bandwagon. Well, it is only their second season in Rockford and Iíve had season tickets, best seats in the house if you ask me, for both seasons. Iíve bought jerseys, shirts, hats, etc. Iíve even bought Ktreva and the boys various Raptor gear. Iím even getting a custom made Jersey this year. They changed their jersey style and I wanted to get one of my favorite playerís jerseysÖ so I did. Iíve completely thrown myself into the Raptor camp.

So tomorrow night at this time, Iíll be in the stands getting ready for kick off. What are you going to be doing? If youíre in the area, Iíd suggest heading to the MetroCentre and watching the game. Itís well worth the price of admission.
