“THERE’S A GLEAM MEN, THERE’S A GLEAM”

To quote the late great Marty Schottenheimer ” There’s a gleam men” when it comes to getting back to the games of the Los Angeles Electric Football League. The LAEFL is looking at possible dates to get back to cracking plastic and all the coaches are ready to see their teams kick some serious butt after such a long delay.

Many of the coaches have been scrimmaging other coaches to sharpen their skills so their inside warrior can be set free to overcome their opponents. After being shutdown for over a year, many of the coaches haven’t gotten any games in so they are raring to shatter that ceiling and their opponent. Everyone has had time to get ready, and only those not prepared will be knocked on their backside.

So follow the gleam men and let your inner warrior come out to play. Ready or not it’s about to happen.

STILL SHUTDOWN-1 YEAR LATER

It’s February 2021 and I never thought we’d still be in Covid-19 protocol one year later but here we are. As most of the sports world have started and finished their respective seasons. Los Angeles has two new champions in baseball and basketball. Tampa Bay has 2 new champions in hockey and football. The LAEFL are still trying to finish their 20th anniversary season of 2020.

Although the season is in suspended mode, the LAEFL coaches have not been sitting on the sidelines. Each coach has spent this “off” season adding players to their squads, building new squads, tightening up their college squads and tweaking their teams for a more powerful and explosive presence when the league does continue play. From hearing all the chatter, these coaches are ready to break out of their respective shel look s and crack some serious plastic among other things.

This reporter has been covering the game for many years and this whole Covid-19 thing is a first in history situation. Like the 45th president, I thought it would be over long before now. But unlike the 45th president, I’m glad he didn’t make it to 2021. I digress. When the 2020 season does resume, I expect a season of delayed joy to explode on the field as each coach wants the other coach to pay for the delay they none of the coaches could have prevented. Until that happens, get ready coaches cause that time is coming. Stay safe and we’ll see you at the vibrating field to rumble.

December 1, 2020

As the Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on the LAEFL’S 20th season, the LAEFL coaches are hanging in there to protect themselves and their families. Some of the coaches’ families have been infected and have recovered. Everyone is being cautious for everyone else. October was the last gathering for 4 of the coaches and big fun was had. Since then coaches have been working on their main squads and their secondary squads. Coaches are getting extra figures to prepare all their squads for competition when the next opportunity arise.

Thanksgiving was truly a time of thanks as we were all grateful for our health and having family around to show love and appreciation. December is another month to be thankful as we celebrate Christmas and a time of showing love to those we love.

In the meantime we prep and paint and base up our teams to be ready to crack plastic to those willing to take the field with all the necessary PPE available to protect ourselves and those we face across the vibrating board.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS COACHES to you and your families.

SHOWDOWN IN SAN DIEGO

While the LAEFL, like most of California, are abiding by the CDC rules for gathering we are still having games in small groups. Next game is in San Diego where the Texans, Vikings, Browns and 49ers are looking to crack plastic on 10/10. Since these teams have been isolated since July’s Fun in Funtuckey took place, they are ready to break free and take down their opponent to remind the league they are hungry for a battle. When these teams do get on the field, there could be a 5.9 to 6.8 quake because of the vibrations happening in S.D.

So look out LAEFL coaches and batten down the furniture to protect your loved ones because there’s gonna be a whole lot of shaking going on in S.D. and the city where you live in Southern California.

THE DAWG DAYS OF AUGUST

Usually this time of year the LAEFL coaches would be preparing for the playoffs (in Jim Mora’s voice) playoffs. But now everyone is just trying to play a game.  5 months into the pandemic and some coaches still have not played a game. (playoffs).

These dawg days of summer have seen the Browns erect their stadium, the Vikings move from L.A., the Steelers add specialty men to their squad for the “playoffs”, the Raiders work their squad into a frenzy for whoever is next, the Bills dodging the virus for himself and his family, the Eagles constructing their stadium for a more intimidating presence, the Chiefs looking into adding more dominant players, the Rams working their squad into a force to be reckoned with, the Cowboys getting acquainted with their new team members, the 49ers making up to look like the bandits they are becoming, the Texans gearing up for the final run before their coach rides off into the sunset of life, the Jets flying high above the fray and looking to crack plastic whenever it happens and the Ravens ready to peck out somebody’s eyes as they quote the Raven nevermore.

So the Dawg days of summer are brewing and about to boil over into the fall of the year but the LAEFL crew are ready to explode whenever the pandemic allows them to meet and crack plastic in a safe environment.
