Hot Chicks and Ass-Kicking: Why Haven’t You Been to the Roller Derby Yet?
I know what you’re thinking: That movie with Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore looked really bad! But don’t take that out on our San Francisco Bay City Bombers (did you know they’re the defending world champions?) because just looking at their website gets me fired up for a good round of ass kicking. Look at this quote from a member of the Orlando Thunder (who, conveniently enough, are taking on the Bay City Bombers next Saturday, May 1st):
“I bash a competitor down on his back in front of thousands, Den I skin his ass good, even if a few rules are broken. Screw da rules. This is Roller Derby. I get paid to kick ass.”
I have no idea what that guy is talking about, but I will gladly contribute several dollars to this bloodsport if it means I get to watch people kick each other’s asses. And luckily enough, now that the Bombers are back in San Francisco proper at Kezar Pavilion, they’ve got cheapo VIP seats on sale through Goldstar for only ten bucks. Which seems like a totally reasonable price to pay to watch people try to murder each other on rollerskates. Plus, I heard they have corn dogs!
