HELL ON WHEELS
Tonight, join all-star derby chicks Beyonsláy, Brigitte Barhot, Scarlett Rage, and Suzy Hotrod for the 2008 Gotham Girls Roller Derby League Championship, where reigning champs the Bronx Gridlock take on the Queens of Pain. The contest should be especially fierce as the Queens are still hurting from their narrow defeat by the Bronx Gridlock last year. New to roller derby? Here are the basics: Two skaters, called jammers, scramble through a pack of blockers who try to knock them down. If the jammers successfully break through the blockers, they sprint around the track and score a point for each person they legally pass. Think you have what it takes to be a Gotham Girl? Tryouts for the 2009 season start December 6; sign up at gothamgirlsrollerderby.com. Doors at 6:30, whistle at 8:30.
