Spring in NYC also means Gotham Girls Roller Derby

Along with forthcoming Big Adventures, Spring in NYC also means the returns of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby. The season continues this coming Saturday, April 16th in Brooklyn at Long Island University as the Bombshells of Brooklyn face off against the Manhattan Mayhem. First match kicks off at 7:30 PM. Matches continue on various Friday and Saturday nights throughout NYC (and beyond!) in Spring and Summer.
There are lots of quality reasons to support Roller Derby in NYC. Personally, the Big Adventure is a big fan of the team names. Along with two mentioned above, you have The Queens of Pain,The Bronx Gridlocks and The Wall Street Traitors. 
The player profiles on their official site are fun enough to make even the most jaded Junior High skating rink reject itch to attend a game. Plus, they even have Jeerleaders on the sidelines. Not sure exactly what a Jeerleader does exactly, but damn if they don't look intimidating.  
We could go into more details, but come on! It is the friggin' awesomeness of ROLLER DERBY.
