Serpent's Lair

Indiana Jones, it's well known, was no fan of snakes. We’d be traumatized, too, if we fell into a boxcar of slithering reptiles.

However, we’re pretty sure if Indy had lived in the Valley, he would've gotten over it. How can you not love snakes when your home team is the Arizona Rattlers? It’s a squad that brings home trophies (like the Foster Trophy from last year’s ArenaBowl XXV) and keeps on stacking up the wins. Nobody could fear a Sidewinder after seeing the lovely ladies of the same-named dance team perform during a Rattlers game. After watching the Rattlers give their all against the San Jose Sabercats in the Snake Pit, a.k.a. US Airways Center all ophidiophobia should be obliterated.
