The Las Vegas Locomotives are the two-time defending United Football League champions and, well, they’re our only professional football team. Locos coach Jim Fassel, who led the New York Giants to Super Bowl XXXV in 2001, is as capable as many of his peers in the NFL, and is arguably the best coach ever to walk a sideline in Las Vegas. And with ex-Giants running back Tiki Barber preparing for a comeback, perhaps he’ll choose to play here for his former coach, which would give the Locos and the UFL even greater legitimacy and recognition.
