Shine Bright

This isn't some li'l prissy, powder-puff football team; this is your three-time world champion Dallas Diamonds. Still, the "Tryout FAQ" on the team's Web site reads like Redbook, focusing on the latest diet crazes ("Eat something that will give you energy, but stay down.") and fashion footwear (leave the heels, bring your cleats). Ha, crazy broads. If you have two X chromosomes and think you have what it takes, head down to the tryouts this Saturday at the practice field behind Birdville Stadium, 9200 Mid Cities Blvd. in North Richland Hills. There's a $55 fee for all tryouts and "mini-camps." Even if you don't make the cut, you still get to keep your stylish tryout T-shirt. Call 817-690-3126 or visit for all the details.
Sat., March 3, 1-4 p.m.
