Déjà vu: The Warbirds Return

by Ralph Judkins

SAN ANTONIO,TX - The National Arena League released a revised week twelve schedule and it has Texas fans seeing double. For the second week in a row, the San Antonio Gunslingers will host the West Texas Warbirds at the Freeman Coliseum this Saturday, June 24th at 6:00 pm. The Gunslingers have won both games in this series dubbed “The Wild West Showdown”, but the Warbirds came within one completion from winning the second game.

Some are calling this third meeting between the teams “Wild West Showdown: In Space” in regards to the planned Star Warz theme night. The first five hundred guests will receive a lightsaber, and fans can take advantage of the buy one get one half off ticket promotion known as “Recruit a Rebel.” And as always, the team will host a meet and greet immediately following the game where fans can get autographs and take pictures with their favorite players.

West Texas is hungry for some payback. Can San Antonio force a sweep, or will the Warbirds strike back? Come out and see for yourself this Saturday!
