Pre-Game Run Down: February 14, 2015 http://www.texasrollergirls.org/2015/02/pre-game-run-down-february-14-2015/ http://www.texasrollergirls.org/2015/02/pre-game-run-down-february-14-2015/#comments Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:15:30 +0000 http://www.texasrollergirls.org/?p=10330 Everything you thought you knew about the Texas Rollergirls home teams you can throw out the window, and hold on to your seats. The off-season has seen some big shake ups, and 2015 could be anyone’s year.


Game 1: Hustlers vs. Honky Tonk Heartbreakers14766392649_7be102d467_o

The first bout of the evening is a rematch of the 3rd place game of 2014 with the Hustlers taking on the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. The Heartbreakers had a tough rebuilding season in 2014 after winning champs in an overtime edge-of-your-seat bout in 2013. During the off season, they acquired Trauma formerly of Kansas City, a Team USA skater, and an incredible asset to the team’s blockers. Add her in with Headless Highness and Nine Lives, and they are going to make things difficult for some opposing jammers. Hauss the Boss (from the Hotrod Honeys), Cease Ann Desist, and Babe Ruthless (from the Hustlers) will all be skating in gingham and gold this year. Hauss’s powerful jamming along with the quickness of Sideshow Ho and Deep Dish Nitza, guarantees the Heartbreakers some high scoring jams this season. Keep your eye on the team’s only true rookie, Thugs Bunny, because she has some tricks up her sleeve. Retired skaters Kitty Karnage and Sic Shooter will be running the Heartbreaker’s bench.

The Hustlers are looking terrifyingly strong in their first scrimmages of the season. Fifi Nomenon, Bittercup, and The Killa’ Sal Monella form a wall to be reckoned with. Throw in recent additions CC Boom (from San Antonio) and rookie Couch Crasher, and these blockers can put the fear in any jammer. The Hustlers also added two jammers from the Lonestar Rollergirls: Nicki Ticki Timebomb and Wild Carnage. They both bring an intensity and unpredictability to the jammer rotation which includes the slippery Malice. Sprawkett has traded in her jammer star for a coach’s whistle this season.


Texas Rollergirls Champs  08.16.14 - The Hotrod Honeys vs The HeGame 2: Hell Marys vs. Hotrod Honeys

The second bout of the night is the 2014 Champs rematch between the Hell Marys and the Hotrod Honeys. Both of these teams look very different in 2015, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t both want this big win. The Hotrod’s Bloody Mary has opted to skate “All-Star Only” this season (after 13 years with TXRG!), and with Hauss shifting to the Heartbreakers and Olympia retiring, they had some pretty big skates to fill. DeBella DeBall has joined the Hotrods (from the Heartbreakers), and will take on the role of jammer killer. MariEZ Livin’ (from the Hustlers), and captain LaVoodoo along, with rookie Sum Ho will be making life tough on opposing jammers. Joining Olivia Shootin’ John and Stone Her in the jammer rotation will be Kategory 5, formerly of Lonestar Rollergirls.

Your 2014 champion Hell Marys pulled off a nail-biter of a win last year, and have seen some of the biggest off season changes. They lost key players Sinnerfold, Notorious D.I.E, and Sandy Ravage to retirement, and Smarty Pants opted to play all-star only for 2015. The Hells have the bulk of this season’s rookie class, but don’t let that fool you, they are still looking like tough competitors. Keep your eye on Gravy, Baby!, the jammer powerhouse from Jewel City, as well as Mini Massacre, the sneaky jammer who transferred from Lonestar Rollergirls. Angela Momentum, from our Rec League, and Bullet Sucker, from Houston Roller Derby,  are strong blockers that along with captain Dolores Fuertes, and veteran blocker Virgo Vengeful, are sure to give those Hotrod jammers some trouble off the line.

The Texas Rollergirls 2015 season starts THIS Saturday, February 14. We welcome you to our home, The Blood Shed (6110 Trade Center Drive). Please get there early to tailgate! Doors open at 5:00pm, and the band Rugaroux, comprised of former skaters and coaches, will be playing until the first whistle blows at 6pm. The Hell Marys have a title to defend, but the Heartbreakers, Hotrods, and Hustlers won’t let be easy for them. It’s anybody’s season.

Love ya ‘till it hurts.
