In case you missed it during the lead up to the Super Bowl, ESPN aired a terrific 30 for 30 on February 2, “This Was the XFL.” If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a great watch.
This opening scramble definitely took me back to early 2001. It’s a shame no one has figured out yet how to keep a spring football league going. There are dozens of independent baseball leagues and teams, why can’t someone do the same with football?
Anyway, enjoy the nostalgia rush that is the XFL. Too bad I can’t go down to Building 19 to look for a Memphis Maniax jersey today.
