My Local Sports Franchise (Well, One Of Them)*

Tirol has an American Football team called the Raiders. I have never followed them nor managed to see a game,  but evidently they’re good enough to have made it to the Eurobowl, and will play the Berlin Adlers (Eagles) right here in Innsbruck on June 18th.

Far from being just a bunch of guys with spare equipment from home, the Raiders have two men’s teams and a youth team. They even have several levels of cheerleaders.

But do they have a marching band? And can it play Bed Intruder?
