Melissa and Ginger, also known as Harlot Brontë and Ninja, discuss strategy before a bout. Or maybe they’re plotting someone’s doom.
You know what I haven’t mentioned in a while?
Go on. Guess.
That’s right! Roller derby!
If you’re in Madison on Saturday, and you want something fun to do, come check out the Mad Rollin’ Dolls season opener. It is not, I repeat NOT going to be at the skating rink in town. Those days are through. The Dolls have hit the big time, and will be holding this year’s season at the Alliant Energy Center (some bouts will be in the Exhibition Center while some, like Saturday’s, will be at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum). So there are good views, snacks, and not a bad seat in the house. Oh, and action. Lots of action. If you’re interested in supporting a local non-profit group that donates a lot of time and effort to charity, come on down! Doors open at 5:30, the bouts start at six.Tickets are ten bucks in advance, twelve dollars at the door. Bring cash!
Melissa (pictured above) recently hadan article in the Isthmus regarding this move. I tell ya, those derby girls are talented.
Now, on to early-morning typing. Did I really misspell “Wednesday” the other day?
Yes. Yes, I did. My apologies. I’ll proofread better in the mornings from now on. Probably.
