The opening bout of the Philly Roller Girls‘ fourth season is on February 7th at the 23rd St. Armory. I intend on going clad in my Boston Derby Dames shirt. I’m excited for the ridiculous pseudonyms, hard hits, snarky commentary, and general revelry. I think I’m most excited about the location; bouts are now in Center City, a few blocks away from 30th St. Station, and about 35 minutes away from Swarthmore. I certainly have no desire to repeat odysseys similar to the one I endured in Wilmington, MA, trying to reach the home of the Boston Derby Dames (the Shriner’s Auditorium) via public transportation.
