Well that didn't last long but I hope that it will come back soon. I'm talking about the Binghamton Bombers and the Professional Box Lacrosse Association (PBLA). On December, 30th, the Bombers flew into the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena to take on the Elmira Renegades.

They started out the season with an exciting 15-14 win and it looked like the team was ready for take-off. Friday the 13th was truly unlucky for the Bombers has they came up short against the Syracuse Sparks, 17-11

They ran out of fuel against the Jim Thorpe All-Americans on Saturday, January 28th by a 18-8 score. They were looking to rebound when they would take to the sky (away game) for a rematch against the All-Americans on Saturday, February 4th. That flight has been canceled.

Professional Box Lacrosse Association Postpones All Remaining Game

On Tuesday, January 31st, the decision was made by the Professional Box Lacrosse Association that all remaining games across the league will be postponed. Owner Carmen Kesner had this to say.

"We made a difficult decision to postpone the remainder of the inaugural season. Our vision is to implement a fast, physical, safe and exciting experience for our fans and players.

We believe we have been able to create this experience, but we feel there are elements we need to improve upon. For that reason, we are halting the season to re-organize the league and team operations."

Season ticket holders will be contacted and will get a full refund for the duration of the season. They are hopeful that the coming season will show that they have made the right decision for now.

The PBLA started the reorganization process with the appointment of Brad Bryant as the new Chief Executive Officer of the PBLA. I love that they gave it a try and that Binghamton was selected as one of the locations.

We'll keep our fingers crossed for next season when the Bombers will once again engage stealth mode at the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena.
