Night of the Loving Dead III: Only Fools Fall and Shove

This past Sunday McKenzie, Jessica and I attended our first bout! GO PAINS!

This was the first game of the year for the Dead Girl Derby League, which our interviewee Jackie aka Mega Manic invited us to. The bout began at 6 PM so she suggested we get there early because the line usually starts to build up quickly, and boy, she was not kidding!

The lineup for the evening was the Royals Pains vs. Shotgun Shelias and the Lovely Lethals vs Deadly Sirens. It may seem pretty obvious, but reading about roller derby and watching videos online does not compare to experiencing it first hand. Here's a visual walkthrough of our experience...
