...This "expansion" MLL team called the Denver Outlaws is for real. Oh, sure, you thought that their 24-14 victory over the expansion Chicago Machine and their 15-11 victory over the expansion San Francisco Dragons (stop it, I’m a dragon!) didn’t prove anything. That’s fine. I’ll go along with that. However, Saturday’s win over the defending MLL champion Baltimore Bayhawks was no joke, and I witnessed it in person – from the front freakin’ row!
My beloved Outlaws found themselves down five minutes into the second quarter by a score of 6-2. The team looked way out of synch, maybe even nervous as they played the first real team they face this season. Then something clicked. Maybe one or two of the FIVE former Bayhawks that now play from
In the second half, the Outlaws made the Bayhawks look absolutely pathetic. Phenomenal defense paired with great ball movement and precise shots turned this game into another 24-14 laugher.
I’m here to say, I love this sport, and I love this team. I don’t even care if we win or lose, I just have a ton of respect and appreciation for these guys who still have day jobs, yet they come out every weekend and work their asses off for a minimal paycheck. Top pay is $24K, most players make less than $18K. No millions implied here! So I’m telling you right here, right now – at $14.50 per seat, THIS is the best value for your entertainment dollar in
