"It’s the sport of kings, better than diamond rings"

I have reason to believe that there will be a particularly interesting development in world sport on Monday as there may be the announcement of significant new information about a new American Football league in the US, the strangely-titled United Football League. (What torn-asunder things are being brought back together?) Despite the name, the organisation represents the most significant challenge to the dominance of the National Football League for some time. Since about February, I've been following UFL Access, rather a good blog about the foetal league, and lurking within its forums. The smart money is on the league starting with six teams, and Sports Illustrated have suggested they are most likely to be as follows: Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Orlando and - possibly - Hartford, CT.
