Columbus Football, More Than a Game, A Way of Life(2/22) The bells rings. The clock is rested at 3 P.M. I run out from class to catch the bus. The year is 2005. Nine years young, excited to leave school on a Friday. Everyone is making plans for the weekend, except me. My weekend is booked.

Remembering Tim Marcum(12/5) December 5th is a sad day for me every year, and this morning, Facebook once again reminded me of the passing of the great Tim Marcum. Today marks five years since the demise of the best coach in AFL history, and it only felt appropriate for me to come out of my retirement to heap some praise on what has inevitably become one of the forgotten heroes of the Arena Football League.

Despite Playoff Fall, Empire Inaugural Season a Success(7/25) Back in April, I wasn’t sure what to expect on opening night of Albany’s comeback into the Arena Football League. With only four teams participating in the league this season and a smattering of players that was only together for four weeks, there was a lot of uncertainty on how the Capital District would respond.
