Pull on your Z. Cavaricci’s and slap on your, well, slap bracelets, because the United Football League has its up-and-coming finger directly on the pulse of football fan fever. Screw the NFL and their Dave Matthews Band playing with a huge New Orleans street jazz ensemble, and forget stupid old Green Day and their Meadowlands halftime show. No way, brah! The UFL is kicking off with the radical sounds of Sugar Ray. Unfortunately, Smash Mouth and the Nixons were unavailable due to not paying their phone bills.
Mark McGrath and Co. will play the halftime show of the season opener between the Las Vegas Locomotives and the Florida Tuskers this Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium. The Locos opened last season to a reported crowd of just under 15,000 people. The bad news is that local newspapers suggested it was closer to 5,000. The badder news is that the stadium holds 45,000. But the good news is that Sugar Ray is used to playing for crowds at bar mitzvahs.
