Derby Derby Derby

Green Venom, #127, Sugar Kill Gang (co-captain) and Contenders; Rocky Mountain Rollergirls

I had great seats for the roller derby bout last weekend, as you can see. My friend, Green Venom, was not skating, and I'm glad I found her--because that section was the rowdiest Rocky Mountain Rollergirl support group in the whole place. Well, it seemed that way anyway, because I almost went deaf from the shouting. Maybe that's the way the whole place was.

It certainly was mayhem when the 5280 Fight Club (traveling team for RMRG) WON the bout, which meant they were advancing to the National tournament in November. I'm short, so it was difficult to get a good shot of the huge group hug. It's back there.

I did get a couple of clear shots of She Who Cannot Be Named (aka She Who) celebrating the win via breakdancing:


I am strapped for cash as far as traveling to Philadelphia is concerned, but I will still watch the bouts--on Derby News Network! Click the "Live" tab, and you can watch the current bout right on your computer! Rather high quality, as well, I might add. I was very impressed. Watching a bout on DNN is nothing like being there (their motto--ha), but it will give you a good idea of what to expect if you go to a bout. Don't know if you have roller derby near you? Find a league here. You won't be disappointed!
