Here are all the deets since the UFL‘s California Redwoods started playing professional at AT&T Park in 2009.
Our “local” team has upped and moved to Sacramento – they’re called the Mountain Lions now. Oh well. At least the uniforms have a dignified, old-school look, so that should please area writer Joe Eskenazi.
You’d think the enormous squad of cheerleaders would be called the Kittens, or the Pumettes, or maybe even the Cougars, but no, they’re called the Lady Lions. See?

Anywho, elements of the UFL, as you might imagine, are having trouble paying the bills. Uh oh. (Hey you know what happens to a McDonalds what doesn’t pay its employees as agreed? Bad tings, that’s what happens. But if the UFL doesn’t doesn’t make sure that its employees get paid, well that’s A-OK, huh?)
But maybe the 2011 NFL lockout will result in an increase in talent tout de suite?
Sacramento, Sacramento, where you at, after the jump
