    Arena football....Cincinnati Jungle Kats

    http://www.bengals.com/news/news.asp?story_id=5681

    Do you think it will work? I see Junior and the Doc are co-owners along with Big Sam Adams and others. I like the nickname.

    Adams heads up the CAF Holdings group that purchased the operating rights in a partnership that also includes Reds center fielder Ken Griffey Jr., and Reds doctor Tim Kremcheck. Other Bengals such as running back Rudi Johnson, cornerback Tory James, and wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh are tentative partners.
    "Some of the guys who pitched well for us last year aren't going to make the ballclub," Narron said.

    Pete Rose, when asked by David Letterman who he likes in the MLB playoffs:

    "You sound like you're betting on baseball."

    I think it CAN work if the ownership group can promote it well and gear it toward the right audience...the entertainment value has to be there....the reason other leagues failed at US Bank Arena is because the ownership was clueless and couldn't gain the interest of the fans.

    I actually went to see the Cincinnati Swarm while they were in Cincinnati. I went to the first game ever and US Bank Arena was about half full. It was pretty enjoyable but definitely different to say the least. If you read the article it says they are an AFL 2 team which is basically the minor leagues of the AFL. This is also what the Cincinnati Swarm were during there tenure at US Bank Arena.

    Odds are Art Schlicter is interested.

    His involvement is contingent upon there being an arenaball version of "The Longest Yard."

    Makes all the routine posts.
