    Smell that? That’s playoff season in the air.

    These playoffs, though, don’t involve a ball or a puck. It’s all about the roller skates … and the women who wear them.

    The Dallas Derby Devils league puts on its championship match — is that the right word? — tomorrow night.

    The game — maybe that’s right? — puts old foes the High Seas Hotties and the Wrecking Crew at each other’s collective throat for the rubber match between them.

    It takes place at 7 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m., Aug. 28, at the NYTEX Sport Centre in North Richland Hills.

    The Dallas Derby Devils gear up for new season.

    According to accounts, league accounts and it’s sounding just a bit WWF, the Hotties won the last bout — yeah, that’s it — but the Crew might have thrown the game to lull the Hotties into a false sense of superiority.

    Oh, this just screams catfight.

    Awe. Some.
