I was a fan of Arena Football from its infancy. Way back when Arena Football first came into existence, and before the league was purchased by the NFL, there was a team in Chicago known as the Chicago Bruisers. Sadly, the Bruisers only lasted a single season. That's a shame because my friends and I would get great seats right near the cheerleaders. It was great.
Well, a few years back the Chicago Rush came into town. They are now poised to win their first championship and bring championship football back to Chicago. This team is awesome and the stadium, Allstate Arena, is awesome. Arena football is intense and great. No separation between offense and defense. No sidelines. You can play a kickoff off of the nets. The field is only 50 yards. Tha confined, fights between teams are inevitable.
Go see the Rush. Enjoy.
