WHY:They’ve become synonymous as the lionheart of Hmong Flag Football, as in the defining characteristic of triumph over all no matter the circumstances. They’re one of the fiercest teams on the field, both, either mentally and physically.Nothing is deterred—never missing a step—even when they’re outside of their own element, especially being away from home taking on a long strenuous road trip up north to Minnesota for the 2009 Big Dance, yet to dominate against their opponents at ease. Their indomitable march to the top of this year’s 2009 Big Dance was simply perfection at its truest form.No one was able to match their stride, and on many occasions overrunning their rivals so easily that the umpire awarded a mercy’s rule—to win out their opposition outright after the first half if opposing team didn’t score—because of how dominant they are on the field.Their swagger on field still uncontested, still undefeated, still brushing haters off their shoulders, and still posing with their index fingers vertical to the sky to indicate their status as being numero uno.
WHY:This team is the heart and soul of San Diego, California where the Hmong population is dwindled down to a needle in a haystack.Although, there’s a scarcity of Hmong people in the greater San Diego area; this only encourages a foundation that builds a community of close knit friends and families.They’ve joined this ranking because of the 2 consecutive years of taking the Big Dance for 2006-2007 before Lights Out came trampling down on them in the finals of 2008 season, only to finish second.No other team has met their stride on the field, but the reigning champs Lights Out!
WHY:This is the crème de la crème Hmong Flag Football team of Minnesota since embracing the Hmong Flag Football world.They’ve outshined many opponents to steadily grow as the most lethal defensive team complemented by a strong offensive line to carry a deadly run-based ground attack game similar to what some flag football enthusiast in the past seen in the 2000 Superbowl XXXV champs of the Baltimore Ravens.X-Conz has an uncanny ability to relentlessly brawl on the field with any of the best teams out there.They’ve been saluted by the general consensus in a poll done by us, www.Hmoodle.com, in reaching a conclusive voting-based poll as the best Hmong Flag Football team in Minnesota.In addition, X-Conz has won the 2005 Big Dance and only losing out to Sanstorm in the 2008 semi-finals, plus only to fall short against Lights Out in the 2009 finals of the Big Dance.This team is my choice as my favorite top contender for the 2010 J4th HFF tourney.Watch out Lights Out as they’re coming for you!
WHY:2008 and 2009 years were suppose to be their years to make a statement in the Hmong Flag Football world.They’re always on the prowl to take a leap in conquering the 1st place trophy in any of the local tourneys held throughout the spring through fall months, whenever weather permits in the Midwest.On many occasions, if not first, IDK would only settle for second place among the two dozens of Hmong Flag Football teams that prevails in the Minnesota’s greater Twin Cities’ area.From my previous interview with this team, they’ve marked their primary goal, which is to conquer the hierarchy ladder in winning the coveted title of all titles, the July 4th Tourney trophy of the Big Dance. Watch out Hmong Flag Football teams!
WHY:They’ve been clobbering teams in Minnesota well before handing X-Conz the baton to charge in their stead.They were once the best team in Minnesota reigning with the studs of the upper echelon groups in the Hmong Flag Football world in Minnesota, however.Now more in a dormant phase, their absence hasn’t stop contending teams from saying, “Never count these guys out!”Their talent is definitely still in place, but their drive seems to be descending for the past 2 years.I think we haven’t seen the last of team Plaza Boys, as they’ll definitely refurbish and revive their mode of execution, and in the near future move back up ranks where they once were.
