Perhaps, like me, you have yet to become truly interested in the Arena League's version of football. Maybe the field seems too short, the defenses unfairly marginalized, the rock star owners too clueless.
Or maybe you're not like trusty reader Bo, who watched an LA Avengers-Orlando Predators game a few weeks back in between sets of crunches. Bo noticed the unique fashion stylings of the Predators' "Prowlers," and I don't think I'm overstating it when I say these are the greatest pants ever created since the invention of pants… which I believe happened in 1775 — the British tried to force pants on the American colonies, and that's what led to the first shots at Lexington and the bombs dropped by Concorde jets. Then Levi Strauss invented the denim pant for the Second Continental Congress, and jeans were pretty much unchanged until the Prowlers re-introduced these Dirrty-era Christina Aguilera wonders.
In conclusion, a proper understanding of history will help you appreciate the Arena Football League.
