There Is Always A Smaller Fish

So here's something we probably should have known but didn't: Arena Football has a minor league, affectionately called "Arena Football 2." As you could probably guess, minor-league arena teams end up in strange place, including the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings, the Amarillo Dusters and, presumably coached by Michael Scott, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers.

A certain part of this makes sense: If we lived in Scranton — a perfectly fine city, by the way — we probably wouldn't mind having an Arena League team around either. But here's something we really didn't know anything about it: Apparently, the Arena League is hosting its first Draft Combine in Las Vegas on June 10. This means that somewhere, somehow, there is a miniature Mel Kiper Jr., putting together endless Excel spreadsheets on all the hot prospects with upside coming into the Arena League. Honestly, the thirst for sport in this country is unquenchable. If there isn't a national Sorry! league out there somewhere, we're going to be disappointed.
