Good morning, Chargers fans!
The first game of the new 2023 XFL season will begin at 12:00 p.m. PT tomorrow as the Las Vegas Vipers take on the Arlington Renegades. I’ll be cheering for the Renegades as they’ve got several former Iowa coaches/players among their staff, including one of the Co-OCs who happens to be a good family friend. So that’s where my allegiances lie!
Are any of you going to be watching the XFL this season? If so, which team(s) will you be rooting for, if at all? If you won’t be watching it, why not?
I want to hear all of your thoughts below! More football is always good, right?
