KENNEWICK, Wash. - Saturday is certainly a big day for the Tri-cities Fever. They host the 10-0 Spokane Shock, who have already beaten the Fever twice this year. There should be a huge crowd to watch the Rivalry game. It's also military night, and the Seahawks Blue Tour is in town.
"I think it's gonna be a rowdy atmosphere," said QB/DL Talie Ena. "But we can't get up in it though. We just need to do what we do. We did a good job of it last time up in Spokane in front of ten thousand people. We just got to tune all that out and don't be distracted by it." Ena almost led the Fever to the upset of the Shock last time they played. He came in for the injured Josh Kellett in that game and has stayed hot the last three weeks while Kellett has nursed his strained achilles. It looks like the two quarterbacks will split time Saturday, but Ena has a starters mentality.
"I understand the next six weeks anything can happen. Obviously but I'm going into believing I'm number the number one guy. That's the best way I can get my mind ready for it. I just go into the next six games knowing I'm the number one guy. That's all I'm thinking about."
