Despite the fact the Cardinals season is over, some say local football hasnt looked this good since Kurt Warner was flinging the ball around the field like a real life version of his PlayStation video game. Long before he was a Cardinal, Warner got his pro start in arena football, so its only fitting that the team in question be a part of the Arena Football League.
The Arizona Rattlers will wrap up their final home game of the season when they take on the Spokane Shock at US Airways Center. Although theyve already wrapped up the Western Division crown after a thrilling come-from-behind victory over hated rivals the San Jose Sabercats, this game will go a long way to determining if the Rattlers can lock up home field advantage for the entire playoffs.
Plus, a win over the Shock would be sweet revenge over the team that knocked the Rattlers out of last years playoffs.
