It's not exactly one of the big four sports leagues but a new start-up football league, the UFL, has placed one of its four franchises in Southern Nevada. The Las Vegas Locomotives will be dressed in aquamarine, but former Giants Super Bowl coach Jim Fassel will be coaching the new team when the season begins October 8th. We talk with him about his new job and the prospects for the league. The Locomotives will play Thursdays and Fridays at Sam Boyd Stadium.
