Just a quick note (mainly for myself) before we get into the Regional Previews for March Madness. I watched the better part of the AFL "Monday Night" game on ESPN 2 last night....and you know what? It wasn't half bad.
- -The hitting seems extra vicious this year with people actually trying to pick others up and throw them over the boards.
- -The on-field mic is amazing, and the interviews with coaches and players are interesting.
- -Jaws and Merrill are actually pretty good together, and are insanely knowledgeable about the AFL.
- -You get to play the Berman-Jackson "From?" Game with just about every player (this is perhaps the best drinking game I've ever invented).
I say twice. Jaws asked Jon Gruden's brother (coach of Orlando) this about 14 times. The on-field interviews are neat, but don't over do it. Two each half (one with a player, one with the coach) should suffice.
Oh and this quote by Jaws made me laugh....."Orlando is the Green Bay of the Arena Football League."
On second thought......maybe I didn't like it as much as I thought I did.
