The undefeated Sioux City Bandits took the lead in the first half of the game and never looked back, beating the Phantoms 62 to 35. The Bandits clearly have a good team. Their status clearly show that they had the upper hand. And let’s be as fair as we can be.

Arena Football Returns to Kansas City. Okay, it’s not the Arena Football League we all remember from back when the Brigade and Command played in Kansas City.

There is ONE hotel in Linn Missouri. I guess I could have driven into Jefferson City, but I went ahead and got a room at the Stone Hearth Hotel by the school I was taking class at. Hey, I got my AARP discount! And he even tossed in a room upgrade for me. NICE ROOM! Internet was a bit sketchy, and on this trip that was an problem with Verizon barely connected in the area. (more…)
