LA KISS Arena Football: Experience the Excitement

The LA KISS suffered the biggest defeat of its short history last Saturday, losing 46-64 to the Spokane Shock at the Home Depot Center in Anaheim, delaying a chance to win a spot in the playoffs.

It was a hard fought, action-packed, fast pace game, but at the end of the day the LA KISS offense was no match for the Shock’s defense, which shut down a couple of crucial drives on their road to the win. Adding to the loss were two interceptions thrown by six-foot-one KISS Quarterback Aaron Garcia (Sacramento State) that killed a pair of promising drives.

The team must now win all four of its remaining games to have a shot at a wild card berth in the playoffs.

As hard as a loss may be, an LA KISS game is not just about football; it’s an experience on and off the field that includes nostalgic hot rods, motorcycle stunts, go-go dancers, KISS dancers, live rock & roll bands and free football giveaways throughout the game.

Spectators decked out in iconic KISS attire and makeup join in the fun and perform for the cameras that play back their antics on the stadium’s jumbo screens. Following last Saturday’s game, KISS and Shock players mingled with the enthusiastic crowd, signing autographs and taking pictures with their fans.

    FYI – LA KISS does not have to win the rest of the season. They are a game behind Portland (still have a game against them) and if they tie in the standings at the end of the season, LA KISS wins the tie-breaker since they have already beaten Portland twice.
