It's Time to Take Down Naptown

Warmer weather means Windy City Roller All-Star season kicks into gear! The Windy City Rollers' travel team elite, the All-Stars, will be bouting in their first home game of the season against the Naptown Tornado Sirens from Indianapolis on Saturday, March 31.

This time last year, the two teams faced off in what turned into an upset as the All-Stars miraculously pulled ahead in the last five minutes to win the bout 128-117. I think it's safe to assume Naptown will be looking for revenge, so this bout should be a good one. The first game, featuring the leagues' B teams, starts at 6 p.m., and the main event starts at 7:30. It all goes down at the UIC Pavilion (525 S Racine); tickets start at $20, but use promo code WRECK12 at for $5 off general admission. Get yours online or at the door.
