Home sweet new homes

The Tampa Bay Vipers step onto the field in their new digs: Raymond James Stadium.
Another new XFL environment: the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
This awesomeness comes as the ball used in the first kickoff of Week 1 (Seattle Dragons at DC Defenders) now holds a spot in the cathedral of the gridiron.
Show Up, Show Out
Catch up on the latest episode of The Showcase, including Charly Arnolt's interview with Los Angeles Wildcats wideout Nelson Spruce, the XFL's leader in receiving yards.

The spotlight will travel to the four games this weekend. We're going to have a lot more clarity with the East and West standings by Sunday night: Both undefeated teams play both 0-2 squads, and the four 1-1 clubs will jockey for position in two intradivision matchups.
