Date Night

Saturday night, Tom and I dropped the kids off at Susan and Kurt's, and went to an arena football game. It is the "Spokane Shock's" first year and they are already number one in the AFL 2 league. Our Elder's Quorum Pres. and the 1st counselor in the bishopric, actually started and own the team, so they were nice enough to give us some really good tickets. We were standing right behind the end zone. Everytime the players made a touchdown, they would run by and high-five all of the fans who were standing in the same area as us. (There were some chairs to sit down in if you wanted) It was fun being so up-close to all of the action.
We can't believe how popular arena football is here in Spokane. Every game is sold out and you have to get tickets far in advance. It is becoming very popular in our ward too, because of the owners! Now we are hoping to be able to go to another game sometime soon. It was a fun night and we were so glad to finally go on a date!

We thought they didn't exist any more (shows you how much we are in to arena football), but Billings does have a team in the National Indoor Football League (NIFL) called the Outlaws. Different league than Spokane -- probably the little leagues! They are 15-1 this season and will play in the NIFL championship next week.
