Bridgetown Brawl is starting right now! The 2011 West Region Playoffs are going down all this weekend at the Memorial Coliseum (catch the live stream right here for all you office drones). This is going to be an amazing roller derby tournament with 10 teams facing off in the most competitive region in the world. I'll be reporting the games on Blogtown all weekend. The main thing you need to know is that our Rose City Rollers NEED to win their game against Bay Area tonight (it's at 6 pm) in order to have a shot at Championships. The lovely ladies in purple have never been to the big game—not for lack of effort, though—and they've been achingly close to advancing in years past. So come on out and cheer 'em on in this nail-biter tonight.
