Sports Central!

I have to be honest and tell you that I didn’t know there was such a thing as the North American Football League or that Nashville has a team in that league called the Nashville Storm. A couple of years ago I found out about the Nashville Dream, part of the National Women’s Football Association. I know both of these teams are still active and playing at local high school stadiums in Middle Tennessee. The Nashville Rhythm, part of the American Basketball Association, made a run at enticing basketball fans for their 2004-2005 season which ended with some drama. The owners of the team say they plan to have an active team again, but that is yet to be seen. The Tennessean recently had a great article on the Nashville Roller Girls that I mentioned in my blog last month.

It never ceases to amaze me all that’s going on around this place. I love the Titans, the Predators, the Sounds, and of course I follow the colleg teams… but I’d love to see what else is out there. Are there any other teams you guys know of, active or defunct? Give me a history lesson!

    The Nashville Kangaroos have been playing Australian Rules Football in Elmington Park since 1998. We were also the hosts of the Australian Festival, the largest in the country, up until this year.

    I’ve been playing footy since 2002. It’s a great sport to play, and it’s even better to watch. The Roos Website has more information on upcoming games. We’d love to have a huge crowd at our next home game, August 12 against Dallas.

    I had no idea, Bo! I’d seriously love to come watch you all knock heads. :)

    So… you aren’t hosting the Australian Festival anymore?
