Tomorrow night, the Chicago Bliss will face the Philadelphia Passion for the Legends Football League championship in Las Vegas at 9 pm (CST). The Bliss have continued to improve and impress and go into the Legends Cup at 5-1, while the Passion is 4-1.
Statistically, the two teams are pretty close offensively. The defensive stats are also fairly close, but one area stands out. The Bliss give up far fewer yards per game (131-176). I don't want to get bogged down in stats though.
Coach Hac has stated that nobody will stop the Bliss. He also guaranteed past wins. Some might call that coach-speak, but some have never met Hac. Some have never seen him coach nor seen the Bliss play.
Actually, that is another topic, but I will quickly point out that those who have not seen the Bliss are really missing out. This is fun stuff and the women are as tough as any athletes I have ever seen. This is full tackle football with very little body-padding and just a thin layer of field padding. These women give this their all and they deserve a loyal and growing fan base.
Getting back to Hac and his thoughts, I happen to agree with him. I have watch the team and I have watched other LFL teams. The Bliss deserves everything they have gotten and they deserve a championship.
The LFL writers have made predictions over the last five weeks. Throwing modesty out the window, I can say that my predictions have won in each of those weeks. That's right...I am five for five. I will put my perfect record on the line and predict a 21-14 Bliss win!
Win or lose, I will applaud the Bliss on a fine season. I also thank them for so much fun. The Bliss is a great team. I can't say enough about Coach Hac and all of the players. I have interviewed or talked to most of the players at some point and they are all fun, intelligent and interesting. Whatever happens tomorrow night will end the season and I am sad about that. I have immensely enjoyed covering the Bliss.
