Arena Football. You've Never Heard Of It. Now, You Never Will.
The Arena Football League has voted to shutter its doors for the coming season. They claim that, rather than sounding the death knell on the League, the move will shield it from doom. I am one of the very few Americans who know that there is a team called the Philadelphia Soul, that Ron Jaworski has an ownership stake in that team, and that it has won the Arena bowl several times. Catch me a year from now, and I might not even remember that. I am not sure that disappearing is the best tactic for sticking around.
