The Chicago Bliss beat the Atlanta Steam 27-24 in the Legends Football League Season Opener. My game recap can be found at Chicago Bliss Defeat Atlanta Steam on Tru School Sports.
This Saturday, April 25, the Bliss host the Omaha Heart at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL. Omaha is coming off of an 86-0 pounding courtesy of the Steam. The Bliss should handle the Heart easily, but I don't expect Coach Keith Hac to run up the score like Atlanta did.
Hac and his coaching staff are true professionals. I have written about them many times and they deserve all of the publicity they get and more.
The coaches are unsung heroes. In a league that was founded as the Lingerie Football League, the emphasis is not usually on the coaching staff. Yet, it is the coaching staff which put the Bliss team in the position to win back-to-back LFL titles.
The Bliss coaching staff often gets criticized for having a one dimensional team. While it is true that Coach Hac likes to run ChrisDell Harris a lot, I would hardly call the team one dimensional. I will also say if this team is so one dimensional, why can't anyone beat them these days? The Bliss is 11-1-1 since the start of the 2013 season. I wish the Chicago Bears were that one dimensional.
