I’m depressed today as I just found out, two months after the fact, that the Toronto Phantoms of the Arena Football League have folded. That picture up there is the pure childlike innocence of a man who has experienced his first AFL game. Never again shall I exhibit such youthful exuberance from a $10 sporting event. Never again shall I know the joys of a league that has girlies dance after every touchdown when the average score is 64-58. The pursuit of the almighty American greenback has soiled my day.
That’s the SECOND non-CFL/NFL football league I’ve enjoyed that’s been ripped from my grasp like a Twinkie at Jenny Craig meeting. HEHATEME indeed.
