I have participated in many sports, but not football. But, I can appreciate the grace, strength, and pure grit of the Omaha Beef indoor football team. My husband and I had up close and personal seats near midfield when the Omaha Beef went up against the Sioux City Bandits—nice!

We walked into the Civic Center (AKAThe Slaughter House”) 45 minutes before kick-off. The place was buzzing! Or should say ‘sizzling’! The Rump Roasters (that would be the Beef’s male dance team) were working the crowd along with the regular dancers, etc. We bought a couple of t-shirts, dinner, and settle in to watch the game.

WHAT a fun time we had! The Omaha Beef scored on the very first play. From there, we saw a fast paced game with a lot of action and some amazing touchdown catches.

There was never a dull moment. They get kids on the field for fun contests. The half-time show was the Elite Cheer girls from right here in Omaha. They put on an amazing show. There were so many of them, and some of the girls were just little ones! The Rump Roasters routine was my favorite and very funny (click here for some photos of this motley male crew). I have to mention the Prime Dancers, they were wonderful and professional.

The Omaha Beef will accommodate your child’s birthday party at the game. You can go online and request a player/mascot appearance. This organization is interested in making the Omaha Beef experience fun for everyone!

Oh, Ann, well written, and if I lived nearby I’d be wanting to go see a game just from the beautiful images you painted in my head. You have a clear way with words, well written, informative and to the point. Very nicely done! Perfect!
