City Paper is not for tourists
The road to the Sup-Her Bowl runs through Landover: The undefeated DC Divas host the Pittsburgh Passion in the first round of the IWFL playoffs. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex.
The Divas, the top-ranked women’s football squad in the land, beat the visiting Passion, 27-7, in a matchup of the same squads early in the season, giving #4-ranked Pitt its only loss.
Along with being quarterback and team captain, Allyson Hamlin (seen above) is the daughter of the Divas owner.
Lest you think there’s some favoritism at play, however, Hamlin’s dad bought the team well after she’d established herself as being among the greatest QB’s in women’s football history.
If you haven’t been a Divas home game, go now. Tickets are cheap ($5-$20), the product is way better than you (guys) expect it to be, and the mood inside the stadium, as marching bands play and little cheerleaders cheer, is small-town in the best sense possible.
The Divas game-night package is so fab, in fact, that if you’ve already been out to see ’em play, you’re probably already planning on going back tonight.
