Toronto Roller Derby double-header - Feb 26, 2011

The end of February is bringing together two bouts on the same night - the main event has some of my favourite players in Toronto including Land Shark and Brim Stone, wearing hot pants and hot pink uniforms while playing with CN Power. The first match has the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (D-VAS, it took me awhile but I picked up the diva part) (I also think they were in one of those Kill Bill movies) against a Sudbury team.

I have just started to hear about the Deadly Vipers so I had to do some in-depth research. Apparently they are rookies that enjoy the roller derby and lingerie, long walks in the park and taking it fast. That and crushing some skulls!

This is what ToRD has to say about the night.

Toronto Roller Derby is proud to announce a special double-header event, Saturday Feburary 26th.
At our season opener, 700+ roller derby fans braved a snowstorm to watch the Gore-Gore Rollergirls take on the Death Track Dolls.
