A football team that I might love.

Every year, I go into the NFL season thinking, “I’m going to enjoy it.” And every year, by the middle of the season, I remember that I can’t stand the NFL. This year I couldn’t even make it to the first pre-season game without thinking, “This is just stupid.” There is no reasonable or logical explanation…I just can’t get into the product that is put on the field by either the NFL or the NCAA.

Maybe I’m too much of a rooter for the underdogs. I miss the XFL. I miss the Cincinnati Rockers of the AFL. Those games were exciting and fun to watch…but the NFL is not.

But finally, coming back to the Cincinnati area, a team that I might actually love…the Northern Kentucky River Monsters. Yeah, that’s right, nine whole syllables (ten if you count the “the”)! And check out that monstrosity of a mascot! I LOVE IT!

Of course, even with a cool mascot, a team could go wrong quickly. But one look at the helmet dispels any fears I previously had…

Is that not the most awesomest football helmet you have ever seen in your entire life???

The first home game is March 18, and I will probably be out of town that weekend. But if those plans should change and I am free that night…I WILL BE THERE! The next game is Monday, March 28, and if nothing else comes up…I WILL BE THERE! I still have to compare the rest of the schedule to my work schedule, but I will not miss out on seeing these guys bash heads at the Bank of Kentucky Center in Highland Heights, Kentucky…especially at only $7 (for the cheap seats).

The Northern Kentucky River Monsters (it just flows off the tongue, doesn’t it?) are one of six teams in the brand new Ultimate Indoor Football League. I wish them the best of luck and will do what I can (within my budget) to support the team and the league! Where do I buy a t-shirt?
