In 2015 the IronPigs were dethroned as the Lehigh Valley’s favorite team by the dedicated fans of the LV Phantoms, despite the Roller Derby’s close battle… hockey won out.
So without further adieu, here is the Noise Nation’s Horn and Bell Blog’s Lehigh Valley’s Favorite Team Poll for 2016!!
|Around since 2006, the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls have been growing strong in our hearts. Now playing their Home games in the Hamburg Field House, their 2016 schedule can be found on their website. Leave some room on yours to catch the excitement of Roller Derby this year!|
|We added the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks in 2011, spending their first four seasons out at Stabler Arena. After a spectacular first season at the PPL Center, the Steelhawks are looking forward to a new league affiliation in 2016 as well as an added bonus of a Philly Soul game in their home arena! The Steelhawk’s family is strong and the fans are dedicated. Definitely need to catch ALL of these home games, and maybe a couple road games as well.|
|The Lehigh Valley Phantoms came to town amid much fanfare. Kram and Dipro have been busy covering the Phantoms and the Lehigh Valley has quickly embraced the team and the new arena. The sophomore year for the Phantoms is just as exciting and with a rabid Phan base (Shout out to our friends in the Phantom’s Official Phan Club!) could easily be the favorite to repeat as the Lehigh Valley’s Favorite team!|
|Our first newcomer to this list has been around for a couple years. Two Rivers Roller Derby has been providing roller derby excitement in Bethlehem for the past few years. Check them out!|
|Our second newcomer to this year’s ballot is the Bethlehem Steel Football Club! I am excited for this one! If the local football fans haven’t proven themselves to be the most fanatical and exciting, this will be their chance to shine!|
|Finally, the team that almost defines the Lehigh Valley Sports scene. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The sheer amount of IronPig gear seen around the Lehigh Valley is staggering considering the options we now have. Spring can’t get here soon enough.|
This poll is complete. Stay tuned for results!
Me… I really don’t have a favorite. It’s like the love for children. Each one has their own peculiarities. Each one has their own benefits and each one has its own limitations. Unique enough on their own they have all grown to help define what the Lehigh Valley Sports scene now is and will be for a long time.
Oink! Screech! Roll on! WooOOooOOooOOoo (The sound a Phantom makes)
