Happy 2017, derby fans! If by some horrible chance you missed our February bout, let me be the first to tell you that you missed some of the most exciting, crazy bouts that the temple has seen in a while! Not only did our Jukes take an amazing win against Muscogee, but our newly chartered all-stars and Rumble Bs went head to head in an IL mashup that kept everyone on the edge of their seats until the very last jam! If you were at the bout, or if you follow us on Facebook, you’ve gotten the sneak peak of those charters already. If not, here is our 2017 Rumble Bs charter, with an interview from a couple of our Bs!
Years playing derby: 7
ARG HomeTeam: Denim Demons
Gear: Riedell 965s matched with white, Sure-Grip Avenger DA45 magnesium plates. 187 Pro knee ads, some ragged elbow pads and wrist guards, all held together by a healthy amount of duct tape. Then, of course, the obligatory helmet (S1).
Greatest Derby Moment: Beach Brawl 2015 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with the Tragic City Rollers. Last jam of our bout against the CenTex Rollergirls. Scores were head-to-head, and we started off with only two blockers on the track (Eiffel Power and myself). She could tell I was freaking out about covering those lines while she braced me. She looked at me and said “We can do this” all calm and collected, she’s so good at that. We killed it. It was magical.
