High Rollin’ Roulette

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 weren’t too distracted by cleavage-flaunting Aphrodites grabbing, clawing and tackling each other to think). Well, believe it or not, roller derby isn’t just a feast for the eyes. There was a game being played and a ref keeping score, all leading to today’s High Rollin’ Roulette, the championship bout of the Houston Roller Derby’s 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, it’s 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.
Sun., Oct. 21, 5 p.m., 2007
