  1. All in all this was a good event. While some of the stuff was over the top (like the women helping each other with leg stretches in the pre-game workout--not that we're complaining), the athletic action on the field was quite good.

    These ladies are both sexy and athletic and some have some real catch/throw/run talent.

    And if you think it was powder puff football think again. These girls smacked each other hard with some jarring hits both into the artificial turf and also into the sideline pads.

    And the game was exciting with LA beating Philly 26-25 on a last minute long-bomb (45, 50 yards in the air).

    A couple of things on the negative side:
    --I know it was just announced but you would think the LFL would have had gear for the new Las Vegas Sin team. The vendors said people kept asking for it but none had been provided. That wasn't coordinated very well. Many of us would have gobbled that stuff up.

    --The T&M needs a new video system, a much larger one. I remember when they didn't even have one at T&M and when they added it we all thought it was cool. But it's so small now compared to other venues and watching the Super Bowl on it wasn't all that pleasant of an experience (except that I had Green Bay & the over).

  2. This town is seriously in need of roller derby!!

  3. "- Never heard of the Sin City Rollergirls?"

    godsick -- I have now! Thanx with extra cheese!

    I'll be there the 19th -- will you?

    "Well, there are three things men can do with women: love them, suffer for them, or turn them into literature. I've had my share of success and failure at all three." -- Stephen Stills in a 1971 interview in Rolling Stone Magazine

  4. We had roller derby for many years at the Showboat Hotel.

  5. Does anyone remember back in the mid to late seventies that billboard advertisement where the dog was pulling that little girls bathing suit down and it showed the tan line, I think it was a tanning lotion ad but never the less when I saw that first picture I thought of that girl being all grown up and playing in the Lingerie bowl lol
