The XFL got off to a good start yesterday with two games, and two more today.  One of which will involve 97.3 ESPN host Colin Thompson, a Cape May resident.

Thompson was a host for the popular Countdown to Kickoff Show with Tony Bruno and John McMullen, and contributor to The Sports Bash.


Thompson played his college football at the University of Florida before transferring to Temple.  He appeared in camp with the Chicago Bears, New York Giants and played in the now defunct AAF.

Now he is a member of the Tampa Vipers of the XFL.

So 97.3 ESPN listeners, we have a team to root for in the XFL - we're all Vipers fans here in South Jersey!
