Virgin Suicides Brawl
Ted Reeve arena
Today's big roller derby event, at least the one I attended, was at the Ted Reeve arena. The Virgin Suicides Brawl. It's called that because most of the teams participating are newish. Newish but still great to watch.
Teams that showed up were...
Bytown Blackhearts (Ottawa, ON)
Death Row Dames (Hamilton, ON)
Derby Debutantes (GTA Rollergirls, Toronto)
London Thrashers (London, ON)
Thames Fatales (London, ON)
Venus Fly Tramps (Kitchener-Waterloo, ON)
Vicious Dishes (Kitchener-Waterloo, ON)
Vicious Dishes sport new uniforms (woo woo).
Hamilton's Death Row Dames squeaked by Ottawa's Bytown Black Hearts and won the bout by one point.
Odd Topsy of the Death Row Dames gets a spiral fracture in the ankle.
During a karaoke session at Wise Guys, Doug sings bust-a-move from memory and gets Roller Girls chanting "Go Grandpa! Go Grandpa!"
