Skating season is upon us. And whether you’ve never seen a roller derby game before or you’re a diehard fan, it’s time to mark your calendars because the skates are hitting the track. This Sunday starts the beginning of the TXRD banked track bout season. The opening game has the All Scar Army taking on last year’s champions the Cherry Bombs. The All Scar Army will consist of skaters from the pick of the litter from each league team that got their ass kicked by the Cherry Bombs last season. For you season regulars, the question is whether Cherry Bomb major point scorer Rocky Casbah is coming back or if she retired at the end of last season after a few awesome faceplants. I know I’ll miss watching her jam, but no worries, the Cherry Bombs added some new names to their roster in the last draft, like Rolla Parks who gives a mean hit and Trainwreck Trina making a comeback from an injury last season. Then there’s the “Wonder Twins,” Scrappy and Milla Juke-a-Bitch, sure to be top point scorers for the Bombs this season. Be on the lookout for Mad Maxican, a Hired Gun that’s been dedicated to becoming a TXRD skater who’s proved herself as a small and speedy jammer. She’s been picked up as an alternate for the Bombs this Sunday. TXRD banked track roller derby is sure to be a spectacle. Be at the Palmer Events Center this Sunday by 6pm to get a good seat. You won’t want to miss any of the action this season!
