Derby Night, Aug 5th

Tonight we were fortunate enough to witness the Red Ridin' Hoods of the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls put on a clinic versus the always game (but outmatched this night) Sugar Kill Gang. The stars of the night were She Who Cannot Be Named (aka SHEEEE-WHOOOOO!!!), jammer extraordinaire; Peaches & Scream (PEEEEEEACHES!!!), who was on loan from the Pikes Peak Derby Dames league and put on a show both offensively and defensively; and my new secret sweetheart: Pinky 500 (PINKEEEEEEE!!!! - I know she heard me at least one time.) with her Mighty Ass of Defense and her Jammer Whip power move. (That's her in the striped stockings below.)

Good times.
