The Las Vegas Showgirlz, Las Vegas’ only semi-pro female tackle football team, is recruiting for the 2010 season that begins in April.
Tryouts will be held Sunday, Dec. 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Ed Fountain Park near Vegas Drive and Decatur Boulevard.
The team, which plays its home games at Faith Lutheran High School, competes in the Women’s Football Alliance, a national league comprised of 50 teams from the United States and Mexico.
Magician Steve Wyrick has been a solid mainstay in Las Vegas since 2007, performing in a $35 million showroom located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. He has disappeared nightly; but, this time the vanishing magic act is apparently a indefinitely canceled show. The performer failed to appear for last night’s show and, apparently, the show is no more.
Wyrick shaped his reputation performing supposed dangerous stunts, but blew his magic cover when a July 4th vanishing act went awry after stage curtains around his “Death Drop” stunt burst into flames and a crew member was injured.
Speculation about his Las Vegas reappearance has not materialized, yet.
