SAN JOSE -- The Spokane Shock open the 2011 regular season on Friday against the San Jose SaberCats.
You can watch the game live on KREM 2 starting at 8:00pm. KREM 2 and KSKN are the new home of the Spokane Shock. We'll televise every home game and many away games throughout the season.
The Shock won the ArenaBowl Championship in their first season as a member of the Arena Football League. It was the third championship in team history (they won two ArenaCup titles in the af2). They expect another solid run this year (ranked No. 1 in the preseason coaches poll).
The SaberCats are one of the original AFL teams (they started in 1995), but they didn't exist last season. This is their first year in the newly formed Arena Football League. They also have three championships to their name (2002, 2004, 2007), and they're predicted to compete for another. San Jose is listed at No. 2 in the preseason poll.
