In the rink and on the brink

In case you missed it, the Blue Ridge Rollergirls’ first public bout was a smash a Carrier Park’s outdoor hockey rink on Saturday, with the Wham Bam Thank You Ma’ams snatching a last-minute victory from the Candy Apple Razorblades in a 68-63 finish.

An estimated 300+ cheering (and jeering) people showed up for the sport’s Asheville premiere.

The league’s next competition will be on the road against Greeville’s Reedy River Roller Girls on July 22.

Until then, here’s a video taste of what went down at Saturday’s Summer Shovin’.

  1. I still maintain that this boring offshoot of tattoo culture is pro wrestling for the PBR drinking intellegencia.
