It’s already March 29, which means it’ll soon be April 1. Which means that the Arena Football League will soon be returning.
Our friends at NFL Network will be televising the first of 18 weekly games on Friday night, when the Chicago Rush visit the Iowa Barnstormers.
Calling the action will be Paul Burmeister and Solomon Wilcots. Throughout the year, Fran Charles will handle some of the play-by-play duties for Burmeister, and Charles Davis and Tom Waddle will sub for Wilcots in the analyst chair.
The games will be televised in HD, and they’ll feature “in-game audio techniques” aimed at capturing “the high-scoring action and fast-paced intensity” of the AFL.
We’re not entirely sure what that means, and the only way to find out will be to tune in and watch.
