The train wreck has begun

Well, ye socks, a lot of folks in this little corner of heaven were sorely disappointed by the collapse of the Arena Football League.

We had come to enjoy the Orlando Predators as a local sports institution--one of the only really successful football franchises to ever grace the City Beautiful.

Remember the Orlando Renegades from the early 80s?

How 'bout the fictional Orlando Breakers in the 90s?

The XFL's Orlando Rage?


Well, now we have the United Football League coming to town this fall, awarding our fair city with one of only six franchises.

They will be playing 3 . . . count 'em . . . THREE whole home games at the Citrus Bowl downtown! Whoo-hoo! (sarcasm detected?)

The sad thing is that there is a lot of pent-up potential football fandom in Central Florida.

But, you're not going to unleash that potential with only 3 home games a season.

And, don't even get me started on the stupid name they've chosen. The Orlando Tuskers? Really?!
