    ArenaCup Playoffs 2nd Rnd: Green Bay @ Barnstormers

    Iowa Barnstormers enter a second round matchup against division rivals, the Green Bay Blizzard. The division rivals will meet for a third time this season, when Iowa hosts Green Bay on Saturday, August 8 at Wellmark Field in Des Moines, IA. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:05pm.
    The Barnstormers (13-4) enter the game fresh off a 70-53 victory over the Manchester Wolves. Green Bay (11-6) advances to the second round after an impressive road victory on Saturday night, defeating the defending af2 champions, the Tennessee Valley Vipers by a score of 60-56. The two teams split a pair of matchups earlier this season as each team won on the opponent’s home turf. Iowa defeated Green Bay 46-41 on May 8 in Green Bay, but the Blizzard got their revenge with a 71-65 overtime victory over the Barnstormers on June 13 in Des Moines.

    How much are tickets? If I go by myself, are there any kind CF souls that would adopt a college kid for the duration of the game? Football is fun, but football by yourself isn't as much fun.

    Tix start at $14. Make sure to call the Barnstormers directly at 515-633-2255 to get around those pesky handling fees.

    Re: ArenaCup Playoffs 2nd Rnd: Green Bay @ Barnstormers

    Green Bay is quickly becoming a hated rival of the Barnstormers, this game should be awesome! The Blizzard players were really showboating after their win here last month, and I heard their coach got into it with John Gregory's wife! Let's hope we have a great crowd, nobody is going to want to be outside Saturday anyways!

    And if I'm understanding things correctly, we need to win (obviously) and have Wilkes-Barre/Scranton lose in order to get a 3rd home playoff?

    Green Bay is hands down my least favorite team in the af2.

    Yes, if WB/S wins then Iowa will need to pass through Pennsylvania to make it to Vegas this year. If Kentucky wins (they've beaten the Pioneers previously this season) then the American Conference title game will be in Wells-Fargo Arena next week.

    Last year QC was my least favorite, but now it is definitely GB.


    Might as well use this thread to request a CyBookie for tomorrow too.

    QC is a heated rivalry. It can get intense, but I've never considered any of their players of low-character.

    Green Bay on the other hand is terrible. Keep a close eye on them on Saturday. You'll see what I mean.

    Here are the "arena enthusiasts" lines for the games this weekend:

    Kentucky +9
    WBS -9 o/u 100

    Green Bay +5
    Iowa -5 o/u 101

    Boise +7
    Spokane -7 o/u 98

    Bossier +4.5
    Tulsa -4.5 o/u 104

    Prices and seating chart. I'll be in 103! Arena games are a blast.

    I must say I'm a little nervous about this game with the way our last game against GB went. I'm surprised the spread is 5 pts...

    Were you at that game? We teed it up for them in OT.

    If the Barnstormers defense is playing well today, we're getting another bonus game next week.

    Man I hate Green Bay.

    Re: ArenaCup Playoffs 2nd Rnd: Green Bay @ Barnstormers

    Sorry to be a noob, but I have questions:

    1) How long do games usually go? We'd be coming from Iowa City.
    2) Are most of the downtown restaurants hopelessly packed beforehand?
    3) My girl just invited me to a double kegger at her house in Omaha... do I go to that or this game?

    Yeah, I was there. We also ****** it down our legs for it to even get to OT, I'm just worried about it happening again. Assuming the team stays focused for the whole game, it should not be a problem though.
