A Match Made in Heaven, the AFL and Me!(2/21) As the 30th season of the Arena Football League approaches, I have been thinking a lot about what the league has meant to me over the years. It has been a really fun league to follow as a reporter and as a fan.

Ted Leonsis brings The DMV to the top of the AFL(12/15) The old expression that two is better than one seem’s to be Washington businessman and AFL Owner Ted Leonsis motto. After announcing in March that he would be bringing the AFL back to Washington D.C. to add to his already impressive resume, Leonsis and his company Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced last month that they would be adding a second expansion team, bringing the AFL to Baltimore for the first time.

eBay Today #2 - A Phantom Arena Teams Merchandise(11/29) We are back again with more "off the wall" AFL finds on Ebay. This time, we've uncovered some phantom Arena Football merchandise. No, not the old Toronto Phantoms, although you can find some old Phantom mascot bobbleheads and other items pop up from time to time. But, this week we'll be pointing out some actual products that were made for an af2 team that never even hit the field!

Monumental Sports & Entertainment All in on AFL; Adds Second Team for 2017 (11/14) The Arena Football League was hit with a major spark earlier today as Monumental Sports & Entertainment announced in a press release that it has agreed to field a new team in Baltimore that will start play in the upcoming 2017 season.

An Homage to the Orlando Predators(10/12) No city should ever lose a sports franchise at any level. There's just too much invested in each franchise. Too many fans, too many players, too many coaches, too many guys who sell popcorn, too many interns who are just hoping to get a start in sports. When a team goes away at any level, all of that goes away, too.
