Hi there, roller derby fans. I see a passel of wheels, short shorts, and hip checks in your near future, 'cause it's derby weekend with the Rose City Rollers
. Three nights of fast-flying roller skating kick off tonight with a scrimmage between the Break Neck Betties
and Tacoma's Femme Fianna
from the Dockyard Derby Dames league. Goes down tonight at the Hangar at Oaks Park (8 pm, $7
Saturday sees the Rose City Rollers' big game #3 with the gambling lassies of the High Rollers
vs. the scrappy butt-rockers in Guns N Rollers
(6 pm). And I'm thinking GNR has something to prove this time out, after a brutal loss in January to the Betties. In fact Saturday's game is such a big bout, it's already sold out. But they'll be broadcasting it somewhere—check here
for the as-yet-announced info. Frowny face upsidedown turner: Get your tickets NOW
for the April 2 bout at the Hangar with the Heartless Heathers
vs. Break Neck Betties—it's bound to sell out too.
Finally, Sunday wraps with the darling (but dastardly) li'l dolls of the Rose City Rosebuds
who'll be fighting it out in the two home-team games of their season opener (3 pm, $5
). Aww, their poster
is freakin' adorable—look at mean Princess Leia! See ya there.
