Looks like the Blast didn't play one of their better games. They were beaten 56-13 by Rochester. This would be the 4th Title in a row for Rochester. As usual the Rochester Giants ran up the score and showed extremely poor sportsmanship with cheap shots. Obviously not good PR for the league. I would love for one of the teams in this league to get better and catch the Giants on an off day. Paybacks are a bitch. But I have always been a firm believer in what comes around goes around and in due time the Giants will get theirs.

Great year for the Blast. I think they were better this year and keep getting better every year. They need more players help them out next season. Still extremely thin as far as depth. Far too many two way starters.

I will post details when I receive the press release.

This one was all the Rochester Giants. They scored once and the closest the Blast could come was 6 – 7 at the beginning of the second quarter. The Super Bowl was one of a bigger and faster team prevailing. Once the Giant offense penetrated the line of scrimmage the Blast was not able to recover and stop the play. The result was then that the faster team on artificial turf was the winner, big time.

The statistics included speak well for themselves.

Lee Jarvi’s kick off totals represent the fact that the Blast used a different strategy for kickoffs based on recent performances.

WE all look forward to taking a significant step forward during the 2007 schedule. It is not too early to indicate one’s interest in playing for the Blast next year. Please visit website http://www.arcticblastfootball or call 906-563-8426.
