    Are the Steamers still playing in any league? If so:
    What league?
    Are they going to be good?
    When does the season start and how long does it last?

    The home opener was last night. It was tons of fun, I hadn't been to an indoor game since the old Storm. It was high scoring (Steamers won 12-6), so the zillions of kids in the stands had a great time, especially with old man Doran scoring twice and assisting on a bunch of others. The paper said there were about 5000 people there-- in a place that holds 10,000 or so, I'm not sure that's a good sign...

    Interesting to look at the teams-- the Steamers are 80% from St Louis with only 2 foreign players, while KC was 75% from eastern Europe. KC's backup keeper Josh Shreck (sp?) played for the St Louis Strikers over the summer, as did a handful of the Steamers.

    i can't believe doran is still playing! i remember when the old steamers used to get 17,000 at the arena, man those games were fun

    as for 5,000, is that a good attendance figure for MISL these days?

    Daryl's player/coach of the new Steamers, and I think he's financially behind them, too, at least to a degree. He's 1000 years old, but the thing is that he can still play. Crazy.

    There was a "Steamers Legends" game (including, of course, Slobo) at the half-- I bet a couple of those guys were younger than Daryl.

    And, just to add to the insanity of the whole Old Man Doran situation, he was named MISL offensive player of the week. Those kids must be peeved.
