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.

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?

Stay tooned…

Sacramento, Sacramento, where you at, after the jump
