Correction: Yes, the Holy Rollers are still a Texas Roller Derby team

In my positive review of chef Callie Speer’s diner Holy Roller last week, I made the mistake of saying that the restaurant shared a name with a defunct roller derby team. The team is not defunct, and people let me know via email and Twitter (better than an elbow to the jaw).
