Business is booming for the XFL and the St. Louis BattleHawks.

After having nearly 30,000 people attend their home opener, the BattleHawks had more than 27,000 people in attendance Saturday for their win over the Seattle Dragons, according to ProFootballTalk. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I think it’s pretty safe to say that fans in St. Louis love their football. The NFL ripped the Rams away from them, but the XFL is here with the BattleHawks.

While TV ratings have taken a slight hit, attendance is strong for the XFL, especially in St. Louis.

Getting more than 27,000 people at a game is a great thing for the BattleHawks. It really couldn’t get much better. That’s a huge number.

I know opinions were all over the place on the XFL when the league first started, but anybody who thinks it hasn’t been a raging success just isn’t paying attention.

Hopefully, the BattleHawks and the XFL can keep the momentum high. It’s been a ton of fun to watch.
