Sunday, Sunday, Sunday: Roller Derby All Star Competition
Major League Baseball aside, most all-star games mean absolutely nothing (and I really don’t think much of the way baseball makes its game count). But that’s not the case with Roller Derby this weekend. The Houston Roller Derby is the host Sunday of this year’s Governor’s Cup, a competition consisting of all-star roller derby squads from Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. And this all-star competition counts because the winner is the best squad in Texas.
Take that, Pro Bowl.
The fast-paced skating action takes place at the Verizon Theater. Gates are opening at 3 with the first match set for 3:30.
Come on out. You won’t be disappointed. Besides, what else are you going to do? Watch the Texans lose to the Panthers or the Astros lose to the Pirates? This is a chance to watch a Houston sports team actually be the best in the state.
You won’t regret it. – John Royal
