Farewell, Arena Football League

August 4th, 2009 · No Comments

We can’t say we ever watched more than 90 seconds of an Arena Football game, so news of the league’s imminent demise didn’t exactly make us cry hot, salty tears. But 22 years is a long time for an upstart pro-sports league to make it—the likes of the USFL could only dream of achieving such longevity. So the clip above shall serve at our tribute to the soon-to-be-defunt AFL and its unique brand of heavily regulated violence. Here’s to hoping some of the laid-off players can find gigs in the Japanese league.
