First of all, let me start by saying thank you for coming out and supporting us Friday night in our victory (62-33) over the Spokane Shock. You guys kept the US Airways Center rocking all night long and it played a huge part in the Rattlers (17-2) getting the victory.
The Quarterfinal was a huge win, not only because Spokane is one of our biggest rivals, but also because we advanced to the National Conference Championship game to match up against the Chicago Rush (14-5). Chicago is a well-coached team that gave us our only loss in the Snake Pit during the regular season.
This week of practice has got everyone a little more focused and upbeat because we know what is at stake. Not only do we want to avenge the loss from earlier this season, but we also want to become the National Conference Champions and punch our ticket to Arena Bowl XXIV.
As always, I thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you all on Saturday night (7 p.m.) in the Snake Pit!!
Let’s Go Rattlers!!!!
