For those of you who haven’t been paying attention, pro football has returned to Los Angeles. And while it’s not NFL football, it’s a team named for soon-to-be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees KISS.
The L.A. KISS recently launched their official existence with a 41-38 win over the San Antonio Talons, with linebacker Beau Bell winning the defensive player of the week award. (They play defense in the AFL?)
I’ve already marked the calendar for Saturday, May 17, when the L.A. KISS travel to Pittsburgh for a game against the Power. And I’ve marked the calendar for August 24, when the real KISS returns to Pittsburgh on their 40th anniversary tour.
None of this means we’ll be expanding our coverage to include the Arena Football League, but from time to time we’ll be keeping tabs on the L.A. KISS.
