More on the incoming Storm

The ArenaBowl matchup is set: AFL neophyte Spokane vs. AFL traditional power Tampa Bay.

The Storm, seeking their sixth AFL title, beat Orlando 63-62 in a wild finish that underscored the value of accurate kickers and the nuances of the arena game (a late Predators touchdown came when a pass intended for Bobby Sippio instead hit the goal post -- or the netting, according to one article -- and bounced back into the arms of teammate T.T. Toliver). This will be ArenaBowl 23, and Tampa Bay will be playing in its ninth title game.

All the details of Tampa Bay's victory can be found here, herehere, here and here. Find the Tampa Bay-Orlando game stats here. And here's the address to a Storm blog in the St. Petersburg newspaper.

We'll get the S-R coverage rolling with a visit to Shock headquarters Monday.
