Calumny: Jeff Schultz v Georgia Force: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jeff Schultz lights up Atlanta for its lack of enthusiasm regarding the local Arena Football League team. I'm not sure what's more amusing though. That nobody in Atlanta cares (sound familiar?), or that enough people watched nationally to get better ratings than the NHL All-Star Game. NHL, what.. was.. that?

Choice quote (completely unrelated): Tonya Harding reportedly will fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson's next train wreck in Memphis in two weeks. You know, some setups just don't need a punch line.

Meanwhile, this AFL stuff looks like it might actually have traction. Are any of you football junkies actually watching this stuff?

I have been a fan of it for years! I am glad it finally has a network TV slot for the regular season. BTW, be sure to watch Tampa Bay vs Orlando. Its always a great game!

Memo to self: AFL has been around for more than 10 years. Traction refers to AFL on major network television.

I used to watch Hooters games back in Miami. They were a lot of fun- good atmosphere, crazy action on the field. I'm not entirely convinced that translates well to TV, though.

I'm trying... but it's not really holding my interest vs. Goldeneye on USA. And this is supposedly the game of the year or something? Oh well... 7 more months...
