The XFL kicked off its season this past weekend, giving football fans a way to shake off those post-Super Bowl blues. The league reached multiyear agreements with ESPN and Fox Sports to broadcast its games this year, which is the second time Vince McMahon has launched a football league. The first version of the XFL lasted one season in 2001, a joint venture of WWE and NBC. The inaugural game of the XFL kicked off Saturday in front of 17,000-plus fans inside of Audi Stadium and saw the D.C. Defenders (1-0) pull out a solid 31-19 victory against the Seattle Dragons (0-1). Tyler Rausa, who played at Vista Murrieta and went on to kick at Boise State, is on the D.C. Defenders roster this season. Valley News/Courtesy photo[/ca
