(untitled 257)

If pressed, I think the average person could correctly name five or six teams from the three major sports in America. For basketball, they might name teams like the Chicago Bulls, the Boston Celtics, or the L.A. Lakers. For football, they'd probably mention teams like the Miami Dolphins or the the Dallas Cowboys. And readers of this blog had better be able to name the Colorado Rockies as a baseball team. (Other examples include the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.) But here's a stumper for you: can you name any of the 17 Arena Football League teams? Here, I'll even give you the 17 locations they play in:

San Jose
Arizona
Los Angeles
Utah
Chicago
Grand Rapids
Colorado
Kansas City
Dallas
Philadelphia
Cleveland
New York
Columbus
Georgia
Orlando
New Orleans
Tampa Bay

Fame and glory go to anyone who can correctly name more than two of them. Honest, I couldn't, and I'm a pretty committed sports fan.

I know the Rattlers and the Sabrecats... I think they're the sabrecats.

I know the New Orleans Soul. Or, something about soul...

All I knew was the Rattlers. And there is little chance I'll ever know the other 16.

Ha Ha! I know four! I can't believe I know four! All for different reasons actually.

It's not New Orleans Soul, it's Philadelphia Soul. I know that one because of the Real World and Bon Jovi owns the team. I know the Utah Blaze because of Utah. I know the Chicago Rush because a friend of mine is obsessed with the team and would always say the name very loud and excited. Rushhhhh! And lastly I know the Georgia Force because my entire mom's side of the family who are obsessed with sports live in Georgia. I've never actually seen a game all the way through.
