Back from the dead...for now....

As you know from the post below I had a long week and I really could have another for the week ahead. For my job this next week is like tax season for an accountant….it’s a busy time of the year. However I do have some time this week to smack up a post or two and cut a spring video that I’ll roll out on tomorrow morning.

Let’s cut to the chase and bring you a re-cap/preview of what is happening for our 5 former ‘Cats that are working hard in the Arena/Europe leagues.

Fire has yet to toss a TD

Brett Elliott’s Rhein fire has be a little ticked today. The Fire lost yesterday in Dusseldorf to their arch rival Cologne Centurions, 14-6. I’ve yet seen the game because the NFL Network is busy with that draft thing but they’ll be broadcasting the game tonight at 9 pm (PST).

The stats show BE was 10-22 for 81 yards but the stats also show that Cody Pickett started the 4th quarter (where the first two games Brett takes all new drives started in the 2nd and 4th quarter) and gave up an interception that was returned for touchdown for Cologne. Elliott was inserted back into the game with 4:41 left in the game but came up short.

Really, I’m not sure what’s going on there…Brett has looked very effective during the first two games and in my biased opinion he’s played better than Pickett. It should be a very interesting game next week as the Fire tangles with the Hamberg Sea Devils (1-2).

Game action clips of The Butcher will be posted up on Wednesday on

Burn lets the Dwagz out.

Our adopted Boise Burn continues to impress as they up their record to 3-1 with a tight victory over the Okalahoma City Yard Dawgz, 48-42. Right now the Burn is tied for 1st in the AF2 Western division with the Bakersfield Blitz.

Down 42-41 with :56 left in the ball game, Burn QB Bart Hendricks found former Linfield great Casey Allen from 4 yards out for the game winning TD. It’s simple…you’re in the red zone…you go the Casey. It should be made a City Ordinance in Boise.

Haze had three tackles on the day and recovered a fumble for the Burn. You can check out highlights from their previous victory over the Everett Hawks Here.

Monday nights in the Tri Cities

George Carter is off the shelf for the Tri Cities Fever (1-2) has they host the banged up and winless Everett Hawks (0-3). The Fever has played well in their previous two games so look for them to put a good hurting on the Hawks.

Wild get plundered in Louisiana

The Alaska Wild continues their 5 week roadie and it was an ugly one as the Louisiana Swashbucklers down the boys from Alaska 57-9. Former Wildcat, Thomas Ford had three receptions for 17 yards for the Wild. The Wild continue their brutal road trip next week in Texas as they play the Katy Ruff Riders.

Indoor Note: Former Linfield standout Defensive Tackle, Ricky Gaspar (’02) might pop up on an indoor roster before the season is out. Ricky started the season on the roster with the AFL’s Arizona Rattlers but is currently weighing his options for the remainder of 2007.

Rhein Fire: Das Stats
Boise Burn: Dawgz get muzzled/stats
Tri Cities: Tri Cities is ready for a party.
