Epic Dodgeball At Staples Center w/ Sissy Girl Cry Party, Reignballs, 8-Bit Shit & The League Of Extraordinary Dodgers
A ticket for the Clippers means three games in one tonight at Staples Center. Immediately following the regularly scheduled NBA Clippers vs Magic game, two dodgeball match-ups will defile the shiny floor of downtown's premiere sports palace with a retro lunge and pummel.
The Staples Challenge follows the storied history of the "most decorated team" in the World Dodgeball Society, Reignballs Dodgeball Force, and their triumphant return to smashing domination. It's a reunion show of sorts, and one lucky team, video contest winners and the pride of Poinsettia Rec Center, Sissy Girl Cry Party, will challenge their reign(balls).
An additional nerd alert has been issued for the second (happening simultaneously) exhibition when 8-Bit Shit battles The League of Extraordinary Dodgers. Translation: people dressed as video games will be chucking stuff at people dressed like superheroes. Tickets are $15 and Will Call is open until 8:00 p.m. if you purchase online. Head out early and join the ballhandlers for a special pre-game event at Cana Rum Bar.
