Being a mega-fan of baseball, I'm saddened every year once the season's over, because that means the days of enjoying live sports outside are pretty much over for the year. There's nothing like sitting outside in the summer weather watching the Red Wings play while eating a Zweigle's and drinking a Rohrbach. Sure, you can go catch a Bills game at the Ralph, but cold weather and overpriced tickets make watching from your couch a better experience. If you're like me and can't put up with the weather, there are still some exciting sports to take in, and the good news is they take place indoors.
Head to the Dome Arena (2695 E. Henrietta Road) this Saturday, November 16, to watch the Roc City Roller Derby league as three teams — the Rottenchesters, 5-H8-5s, and the Midtown Maulers — compete in a round-robin-style tournament. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the action begins at 6 p.m., with tickets going for $5-$20. Check out rocderby.com for more information.
If you're unable to make it to a Sabres game this season, why not catch the future Sabres by going to see an Amerks game? The team's next home game will be Wednesday, November 20, at 7:05 p.m. when they take on the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins at the Blue Cross Arena (1 War Memorial Square). Ticket prices range from $25.40-$29.40. Visit amerks.com for more info.
