New Orleans Voodoo Fanfest

This afternoon I went with my dad and little brother to the New Orleans Voodoo Fanfest, a promotional event for an arena football team new to town. The event was free an open to the public. It was a decent way to introduce the AFL to New Orleans. Fans got to meet the players and cheerleaders, dubbed the 'Voodoo Dolls.' The head coach and players were on the field for a while explaining the rules of the game and taking questions. Most of the rules match the NFL's regulations, although there are some differences to make it more interesting and to accommodate the smaller playing field, about the size of a hockey rink. After a while the audience was allowed on the field to mingle with the players and get autographs and such. The pictures I took at the event can be viewed here.
