Bolts Win!

Daily News excerpt

The fans in attendance were into the action, cheering every big Brooklyn play, undeterred by the downpour, and seem committed to supporting the new club. The other two home games are on Fridays and the team has sold twice as many tickets for each of their remaining two games as it did for Wednesday’s. 

“I think the concept is great,” said 55-year-old Charlie Mandracchia, who lives in Bensonhurst and teaches at Lafayette HS. He wore a black Brooklyn Bolts cap he got through a ticket promotion and came to the game with his sister, Linda, and his niece, Amanda. Linda bought tickets immediately after they found out about the league over the summer and they plan on attending the other two home games.

“Hometown football team,” Mandracchia added. “I put it up on Facebook: Live football in Brooklyn.”
