7:05, Alltel Arena. $11-$28.
Even though the Arena Football League cancelled its season this year (the economy, natch), its spin-off league AF2 soldiers on. I guess down here in the hinterlands, same as in places like Amarillo, Lexington and Tulsa, we treasure our pro sports teams no matter what shape or size. As long as there are cheerleaders (check), some violence (check) and T-shirt cannons (surely). The Twisters, who’re expected to hold their own in the AF2 again this season, open against Bossier-Shreveport. New to the team this year: Former UA quarterback turned receiver turned quality football player Robert Johnson.
