Roller Derby. THIS SATURDAY. DC Armory. DOORS AT 3PM!

The sun is shining and the Snowpocalypse of 2010 is but a distant memory. But DAMN it's still colder than a witch's uh...wait, this is a family fun event, uh...colder than a roller derby queen's heart when she goes in to massacre the opposing jammer.

Jammer? What?

No, that is not a nice Amish lady responsible for the tasty treats on your toast in the morning, goober. In roller derby, the jammer is the skater with the star on her helmet, and she scores points for her team by passing opposing players on the track.

So here's the deal:

There's a biggo renaissance of roller derby all over the damn country. Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page made a feature film, leagues are popping up all over like crazy, and you, YOU have a seriously badass (ranked 9th on the East Coast, dig?) league RIGHT HERE at the DC Armory.

Righteous women on wheels? Check.
Speeds that'll make you wish you'd sat farther back? Check.
Suicide seats? Double Check.
Family fun, facepainting for the kiddies *and* beer? Checkity check. Oh yes.

January 16 - THIS SATURDAY
DC Armory
Stadium Armory Metro
Doors at 3pm, bout at 4
Adults $12, Kids 6-11 $5, and 5 and under are free! (fancy new redesign!)
