We extended our second stay at Usery Mountain Recreational Park when we found out there was a Roller Derby scheduled nearby on Saturday evening. Attending a roller derby was on our odd-ball list of things-to-do while on this road trip.
Arizona Derby Games
When we arrived at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, we discovered we’d be seeing two games of the Arizona Derby Dames.
The first bout pitted the Hot Shots against Seattle’s Tilted Thunder Rail Birds. We watched the skating / blocking / jamming skills of players like Ellie Mayhem, Cruella Demille, Piston Vinegar and Creep Suzette.
During the second bout the 2010 Champion Coffin Draggers faced off against the Bombshells. These women were very competitive—but, what do you expect with names like Gingermortis, Cannibelle Corpse, Reese Killersoon (Coffin Draggers) or Lady Lawless, Emma Grenade and HollyHood (Bombshells).
Our family was so inspired by the winning Hot Shots and Coffin Draggers that we decided to form our own team.
These RVers are one road-tripping team. But, don’t take their American family image for a weakness because that’s when these fierce road warriors will attack!
Tonight’s Line Up:
- Blackwater Boyink, #2 - Captain
- Wheelchock Willie, #5th - Co Captain
- Hitch B**ch, #110% - Pivot
- Slideout Suicide, #911 - Jammer
Tonight’s Featured Skater: Ar-Vee Draggers #911
Slideout Suicide is the fastest jammer around. It seems like—no—she HAS eyes in the back of her head.
“If she winks her right eye, we know that the opposing jammer is coming up behind us.” Wheelchock Willy
Slideout Suicide says that “if you put your whole heart into the game and have at least ten die-hard fans in the stands, you are sure to win.”
Now that you’ve been introduced to our team, I recommend that you strap on your seatbelt. It’s going to be a bumpy ride!
