Stand with the Avengers!
The buzz around Southern California in the wake of the Avengers HUGE playoff victory last night is palpable. That is if palpable means nobody cares except for a former Avengers beat writer.
John Elway, according to a couple of “rumor mongers,” would like to make the AFL into a feeder league for the NFL. Yeah, that will do it because American sports fans love minor league sports such as roller hockey and the WNBA—you know, the feeder league for the Kentucky Derby. Would you be more apt to watch the Avengers game if Cleo Lemon, A.J. Feeley or some other NFL scrub was the quarterback?
Did you watch NFL Europa? No. Although Lil’ Hater made a good point during last night’s game in that maybe they should ship the AFL over to Europe.
You want to know what the only answer is?
Bring back the XFL. Think of the drama when the Los Angeles Xtreme plays host to the Atlanta Stranglers. That, we all would watch.
