I'm going to just say this once.

BERG 2012 Season Opener, double header.

BERG Crescent Wenches -vs- River Region Girls Deadutantes

BERG AllStars - vs- Cape Fear Rollergirls

Doors open at 4:30, game starts at 5 pm. That gives you time for a beer and a snack, then you'll be able to watch the battle for victory between the Wenches and the Deadutauntes begin.

Either way, we mean business. We're athletes. Come and see.

I can remember my first bout. I couldn't stop grinning for three days afterwards. I remember how my skates felt on that Sport Court, I remember feeling like I got hit by a truck to the outside of the track (I got hit by some burly Bloomington blocker). I remember looking over at Teriyaki, who was glaring at every opposing player, ready to get aggressive. She had the fury. I see the same fury in my leaguemates' eyes now. Harm narrows her eyes at opposing players as if she is trying to activate eye-lazers. Or turn them to stone. Cougar is just quiet. Focused, and silent. Its' terrifying.

Afterparty will be at Maison on 508 Frenchman Street. We'll be ready to get down.

Derby is a beautiful thing, ya'll. Come get some!

Black eyes, NEW TEAMS, and March

On March 10th, the Big Easy Rollergirls' own Crescent Wenches will take on the girls from Pearl River Rollerderby. We've got new Wenches this season! They're GOOD. Don't be fooled by their demure smiles or tall bangs in these photos. Harm is an insane strategist/jammer killer, and KreweLT is one of the fastest skaters in the league. There's Diddy, a mosquito on wheels, and Pound Puppy, who has an amazingly lethal bum and can bake a mean Wenchlove cake. That's only a few of the Wenches.

Other news? Diet Choke sported a black eye from scrimmage while she picked up the kids from school this afternoon. (see above photo, made even more dramatic with Teri-Yaki/photoshop) Fleur d'Lethal is back in action on the track this season- as the Crescent Wenches' Coach. She seems even taller as an authority figure, if you can believe it. Anti Em kept up her fresh tattoo safe while scrimmaging by covering it with a sweater fragment. Go, em. Emerald LaGhastly also perfected her bacon brownie recipe. All of the aforementioned skaters are ready to kick some ass fore the start of our 2012 season. Check back for details, ya heard?
