Huge Crowds Joyfully Returned in 2021. Always Stick Together and Let's Have an Amazing New Year in 2022!

Genuinely humble back on July 8th, 2020, I wrote a blog piece about how important it is for all of us to stick together and remain positive, and to respect each other's opinion during the pandemic. Most of all as people know, the importance of staying strong while humanity galvanized and worked together throughout the comeback period to win against the evil virus that scourged the globe.

Overall against daunting odds throughout the 2021 IFL spring-summer season, the IFL had 11 teams operating in 9 different states, and yet the IFL did NOT have to cancel any games due to COVID. Better yet, as a reward for its remarkable handling in guiding a multitude of pro football teams through the pandemic, the IFL played its annual and thrilling United Bowl championship game on September 12th, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ. 

Dutifully as its moniker implies, all IFL games are played Indoors. Therefore, the IFL's perfect accomplishment of NOT missing any games for the entirety of its 2021 season is amazing! To be clear the IFL's stunning achievement was sheer perfection overall.  Looking ahead to 2022, the IFL will have 15 teams playing football in 12 different states. A very healthy growth of the IFL's expanding footprint and with other new teams in attractive markets coming onboard in 2023 and beyond.

Willfully and eagerly nationwide in 2021, high school and collegiate football programs returned and their respective institutions hosted huge crowds with thousands-and-thousands of people having a great time together once again. Overall a great accomplishment, not perfect but wonderful when their collective seasons are taken as a whole.

It's time to rejoice and celebrate in our shared victory. Together we shall always prevail.

Never once did our nation quit and we have earned it by sticking together through the worst of times.

So the lesson is clear - always stick together and never let anything divide us.

Embrace it and have a blast - because by working together we have achieved a hard-fought victory and it's time for us to enjoy living a fun life once again!

On March 21st, 2022 - the Bay Area Panthers will kick off the team's inaugural season on Monday Night Football at the SAP Center in beautiful downtown San Jose, CA and it's going to be awesome!  All Panthers Home games will be broadcast live on television throughout the greater bay area and every Panthers game (home & away) will be shown live on You Tube.
