    Default LA to FINALLY get a football team...wait for it...

    AND BOOM

    Members of KISS buy stake in L.A. arena expansion franchise - ESPN Los Angeles

    The guys dressed in black and silver are bringing football back to the Los Angeles area.

    The Raiders? Not quite.


    LA Kiss
    Legendary band KISS has bought a stake in an L.A. arena football team.
    It's KISS, the heavy metal band known for performing in black, white and silver that has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide during a 40-year career.

    On Thursday, the Arena Football League announced it was awarding an expansion team to a group of individuals that includes KISS band members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. The team, called the LA KISS, will begin playing in March at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

    "As a fast-paced, high-action band, this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us," Simmons said in a statement. "Attending an LA KISS game in 2014 will be similar to a live KISS show, with thrilling, heart-pounding action."

    Season tickets, which went on sale Thursday starting at $99, will include a free KISS concert.

    While the team will use the band's logo, it is not known whether the team's uniforms will be silver and black.

    Next season will mark the 27th season for the Arena Football League, which begins its games in March and culminates with the ArenaBowl in August.

    The league and the music world have joined forces before. The Philadelphia Soul, who will be playing in the championship game Saturday, were partly owned by Jon Bon Jovi until 2010.

    Is it bad if I just pay the $99 for a season ticket just for the concert?

    KISS = good name for a 70's rock band.
    KISS = TERRIBLE name for an arena football team. The other players already have hundreds of pages of smack talk written down.

    GO KINGS GO!!!

    But in Vegas dollars that actually works out to be about $5...the time spent golfing actually saves you money because that it less time to be losing in the casinos.
