I came here to chew bubble gum and kick....

I will let Jeff Potter talk about the team/games in his blog. I want to use this blog to look at some fun things the Mad Ants have done over the past several weeks.

My favorite event/partnership/program that the Mad Ants have done this year is building a great relationship with the YMCA's of Greater Fort Wayne. Every Y-Ball (YMCA's youth basketball program) participant received a free Mad Ants ticket and a chance to participate in a Mad Ants Coach/Players basketball clinic at the Jorgensen YMCA on Feb. 13th. We had well over 250 kids participate int he clinic and everyone had a great time. Here is a picture of the early session of kids at the clinic.

We recently had YMCA Night at our Feb. 28th home game with over 400 people from the Y-Ball program coming out to the game.

Another fun night was February 20th which was "Awesome 80's Night". I always tend to go overboard on these theme nights and the 20th was no exception. Here it is....the long awaited, never duplicated....

If you don't know who I am, shame on you. Rowdy Roddy Piper was an icon of the 80's pro wrestling scene. The classic bad guy who was so bad he was cool long before Stone Cold came onto the scene. Note the authentic pro wrestling boots.

And for your enjoyment a shot of the Madame Ants in their 80's gear:

LA D-Fenders come to town tomrrow and Friday! Be there! Tip-off is at 7pm on Thursday and 7:3opm on Friday.
