Have you ever watched the cleavage-flaunting Aphrodites of the Houston Roller Derby grab, claw and tackle each other into a bruise-inducing crash and thought, What was the point of all that? (that is if you werent too distracted by cleavage-flaunting Aphrodites grabbing, clawing and tackling each other to think). Well, believe it or not, roller derby isnt just a feast for the eyes. There was a game being played and a ref keeping score, all leading to todays High Rollin Roulette, the championship bout of the Houston Roller Derbys 2007 season. First, Burlesque Brawlers challenge the Machete Betties in a consolation match to see which takes the third-place ranking this season. Then the Psych Ward Sirens duke it out against the Bayou City Bosses for the Championship Cup. Today, its fair and sporty to say that the victor is whoever has the largest cup size. (heh heh) 5 p.m. Verizon Wireless Theatre, 520 Texas. For tickets and information, call 713-230-1600 or visit www.livenation.com. $10 to $15.
