The introductions

The introductions are serving their purpose. The Arena is rocking. And the Shock isn’t on the field yet.

This reminds me a lot of the Rubber Chicken, when both Ferris and LC are good. But even then, I don’t think the Arena gets this loud.

And the amazing thing is, the place isn’t full yet.

The loudest cheers are reserved for Charles Frederick, as should be expected. Frederick has caught the imagination of Spokane and, after scoring five times against Arkansas in the first game, will have the Twisters attention as well.

Pardon my mistake. The loudest cheer was for coach Chris Siegfried, and the announcement about his coach of the year award.

One of the Twisters’ captains, lineman Shakorr Bryant, from the University of Memphis, has longer braids than Frederick, which is the first upset of the night.

Four minutes to game time and the coin flip goes to Arkansas. The Twisters defer and Spokane will get the ball.
