Live from the Arena


Here in the Arena – Shock Central – we’ve already been treated to some trash talking that escalated into some pushing, shoving and all-around mayhem.

Seems that Steamwheeler star wide receiver Kris Peters and some of the Shock quick guys like Antwone Savage and Rob Keefe got into a little bit.

It will be fun to see how that will play out in the game.

• The key to this game is obvious: How well the Shock defense plays.

AJ Olebar, who was in the Redskins training camp, will play tonight and use his 6-foot-3, 275-pound body to clog up the inside.

But the most important people are those who got into the pregame scrap, the defensive backs. The Steamwheelers, who scored 81 points in their season-opening game, will be facing a defensive group that yielded just 35 points to Stockton, most of that after the game was decided.
