As usual, I am 1 to 101 weeks late on the goings on in Sacramento, but I was reminded today that popular rapper Flo Rida will perform both during Fan Fest and at halftime when the Sacramento Mountain Lions (1-2) play host to the Las Vegas Locomotives (2-1) in a key game for both teams Friday at 8 p.m. Pacific at Hornet Stadium.
Flo Rida will perform on the “Coors Light Entertainment Stage” in Lot 8 of the Hornet Stadium parking lot during Fan Fest, which begins at 5 p.m. He then will perform a 12-minute set at halftime inside the stadium. “I’m excited to come to Sacramento and turn it out for the crowd at the Mountain Lions game,” Flo Rida said last week. “I’m going to bring the energy, get the fans out of their seats and have the players ready to go. The Locomotives won’t know what hit them.”
Is this a big score for Sacramento? I don’t follow popular music at all, but I would guess that for a fledgling professional football league like the UFL, this has to be good for business. Has anyone been to a game? Apparently, their first home game played to a sold out crowd at Sac Stateâ€™s Hornet Stadium and lead to a traffic nightmare. This is being addressed for the October 15th game.
Also, a $40,000 scholarship will be awarded to a college student if he or she is able to kick a field goal. Students with proper identification will receive $5 off tickets to Friday’s game. And, tickets for Friday’s game are just $10 for California state employees.
Anyone that has ever tried to kick a field goal knows that it is extremely difficult to do. Even from 30 yards out. Any joker can get lucky with a half court shot at a Kings game, but knocking it through the uprights would be fun to see.
