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. The Washington Commandos played throughout out D.C., Maryland and Virginia from 1987-1990, opening the inaugural season away against the Pittsburgh Gladiators.

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.
