Sacramento Mountain Lions..hear them roar!

It's been an interesting year in Sacramento. We have a professional football team and they are selling thousands of tickets for their home game. Have you been to a Mountain Lions game yet? They play at Sac State's Hornet Stadium and pretty much sell it out every game. I guess we are hungry for pro football in this town.  With the Forty Niners so dismal it's not hard to root for these guys in the UFL. The team began play as the California Redwoods in October 2009. In the league's 2009 season, the Redwoods played were originally slated to play all of its home games at AT&T Park in San Francisco, including the first ever UFL game. Due to a conflict with the San Francisco Giants, the UFL's first game was instead played in Las Vegas. Poor attendance in San Francisco led to the league relocating one of the Redwoods' home games to Spartan Stadium in San Jose. Former NFL head coach Dennis Green was hired as the Redwoods' head coach prior to the season. Our Quarterback is Daunte Culpepper and he is a veteran of many NFL games. This weekend is the 9th and final game of the regular season. The Mountain Lions take on Omaha and their well worn QB Jeff Garcia, who we all remeber worked with the Forty Niners for several seasons. Win or lose, it's always a pretty good time at the game. This last game on Saturday will have live music, tailgate parties and lots of prizes for the fans. The Eagle will be out there, stay tuned for your tickets, listen to the Cafe Rock everyday.
