Stix Stomped by Triumphant Tuyas

Sad to say my favorite roller derby team, the Apocalypstix, lost last night to their arch-rivals the Sake Tuyas, and this time it wasn't even close. I don't remember the final score, but the Tuyas kept a 30 point lead throughout the second and third periods. The Stix have some great new skaters (especially Josephine Breakher, JuJu and Pretty Violent). But so do the Sake Tuyas, whose team now boasts promising newcomers TeacHer Pain and Switchblade Siouxie (no pics available yet).

Stix captains Knockin Robin and Billie Clobberday gave it their all, as did stalwarts Shank Ya Ma'am (who almost landed in my lap) and Viva Hate (happy birthday!) But the Tuyas were unstoppable, especially team captain Belle of the Brawl, who scored almost thirty points all by her damn self.

Am I the only fan who misses the Penalty Wheel?

Next month (April 15) the Apocalypstix face the Toxic Shocks. The ARG All-Stars (Atlanta's travel team) will host two Colorado teams: the Pikes Peak Derby Dames (on April 29) and the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls (June 24). Plus the Sockit Wenches (from Seattle) will battle the ARG in the ATL on July 15! The Atlanta Rollergirls website has links to over three dozen women's roller derby teams in other cities.

Today's song is dedicated to Number 714, Knockin Robin (who punched me last month when I mispronounced her name); and to the memory of Social Distortion bassist Brent Liles.
