For the first time since December of 2015, professional football returned to St. Louis on Sunday with the St. Louis BattleHawks playing host to the New York Guardians. More than 29, 000 fans showed up to welcome the XFL's pro franchises to "The Dome" during the home debut for the upstart BattleHawks who feature a number of area players on their roster. The home team rolled to a 29-9 win over New York this past weekend. (2-1) St. Louis will host Seattle this Saturday afternoon in The Gateway City.
