Everett Gets Football Team
With the success of the Silvertips expansion Hockey team, this is no shock. But it is cool, nonetheless. The northend of the Puget Sound has now added Hockey, Football & soon to be a major NASCAR race. Yeehaw!
The National Indoor Football League approved the expansion team at its annual meeting in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
The team hopes to call the Everett Events Center home, and could roll out the green turf in March for a 14-game season that includes seven home games.

The expansion team will be owned by a local group headed by National Football League player Sam Adams. Now with the Buffalo Bills, Adams is a former Seattle Seahawk.
Everett Hawks spokeswoman Lisa Balmes said the organization is ready to roll with its brand of "affordable family fun." Ticket prices will range from $7 to $43, she said.
