You Wanted The Best And You Got...An AFL Team

KISS is one of my all-time favorite rock bands.  Period.  For years of my life as a kid growing up, I wanted nothing more than to be a fifth member of the band.  I had KISS records, posters, cut up music magazine pics, a Gene mask, you name it.  Even during the makeup-less years, I was still a fan and even prefer many of those albums over the costumed versions.

My dreams were only exacerbated by the return of Peter Criss and Ace Frehley in the reunion of the original members back in 1995.  I camped out for tickets, bought the t-shirts, the posters, the calendars, all over again.  But even I, the most loyal of loyal fans, have officially decided the I think I have had too much.  I made mention of the fact before on here that I thought Gene "jumped the shark" with his Family Jewels reality show about his adventures with his quirky family.  Well...I was wrong.  Now it is official...

Check out this article by Jay Busbee on the Shutdown Corner blog on Yahoo! that first made me think that it was April Fools day again...

But it wasn't a joke...

You can even buy advanced tickets...

Or link to them on Facebook

And Twitter

I guess all I did here was promote them even further to the 25 people that read this blog.  Oh well.  I suppose I could think of worse bands to brand a professional sports team.  Go ahead and give me your own Rock/Sports combo in the comments and tell me why that would be a good fit for a sports ownership relationship.


  1. this is awesome.

    I'd have season tickets in a second... but the commute for me is a bit much.

    1. As much as I hate it...I love it. Reminds me of when Vince McMahon and the WWE folks tried to launch and sustain the XFL. Everything was over-the-top, bombastically grandiose. I loved the Las Vegas Outlaws. I had 2 t-shirts, a hat, and a beach towel. I still have the hat somewhere.


Do you think I actually care about your opinion?
I might. So leave a comment and find out.
