LEXINGTON - In today's world of high-dollar sporting events and the almighty dollar, it sure is refreshing to take in a sporting event like a Lexington Horsemen game.
Indoor football is a very entertaining evening for the whole family and the Horsemen do it up right. How many college or professional sporting events can you attend and expect to go out onto the field after the game for autograph sessions with players and coaches? How many college or professional events can you attend and expect to possibly win prizes or trips? Those are just some of the nice touches added by the Horsemen to make the evening more "fan friendly" - much to the liking of all fans.
Indoor football is as they say "wall-to-wall action" as the sidelines are indeed the walls. Nonstop action is another thing to like about this type of football, but the most appealing aspect (at least for me) has to be the players not really playing for the money. After all, they only make around $200 per game. They're not exactly getting rich are they?
The games are almost always high scoring with lots of action and the fans really get involved in the games. The ticket prices are very reasonable with lower arena seats priced at as low as $12 for adults and $10 for children. The Horsemen fans are loyal and dedicated, and the office personal make sure your game experience is enjoyable. The season is winding down for 2004, but the team will be back in action next season. Do yourself a favor and take the family to a Lexington Horsemen game. after all it is (wall to wall action).
The Horsemen defeated the Houma Bayou Bucks 70-63. Lexington scored on 10 of its 11 possessions.
