Arena Football: Back in the Nation's Capital(4/19) The year was 1987 and the Arena Football League was a new face in the professional football scene.

Storm Drop Third Consecutive Home Opener, Fall Short Against Defending Champs(4/16) Number of the night not found in the box score? 2014. First 2-0 start to the season since 2014. First home opener victory since 2014. First win over the Philadelphia Soul since 2014. All of that, and more, was at stake on Saturday night at Amalie Arena. And for the Tampa Bay Storm, it just wasn’t meant to be.

FIRST. GAME. EVER.(4/9) It's officially official. Week 1 is in the books. While I only got a chance to catch some of the Cleveland/Tampa Bay game, I was at the Washington Valor home opener. Verizon Center was buzzing, with the energy in the air, it felt like this was a playoff game and Arena Football had been a staple in D.C. for the last fifteen years.
