Shock Capture ArenaBowl XXIII 69-57

The best team in the Arena Football League saved its best for last. The Spokane Shock, despite losing two defensive starters in the first 5 minutes, put together their most complete performance of the season, punctuating their inaugural AFL campaign with a convincing 69-57 ArenaBowl XXIII victory over the Tampa Bay Storm on Friday in front of a franchise-record 11,017 at the Arena. The No. 1-ranked Shock (16-3) will hang another championship banner on the Arena walls, to go along with the two Spokane earned in four seasons as a member of arenafootball2. Tampa Bay (13-6), the most successful franchise in the AFL’s 23-year history, was denied as it tried to add to its league-record five titles/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.

Question: Did you watch any Spokane Shock games at the Spokane Arena this year?
