Chicks on Skates. Long Island Roller Rebels 2006 season opener: The Wicked Wheelers of the West vs The Rolling Thundercats. April 22 at Skate Safe, Bethpage, Long Island.

Kids, don't try this at home. Or, rather, at the local skating ring. These girls practice. And still get injured. When you're on wheels and pushing each other, it's gonna happen. So don't take these roller derby bouts lightly. And this thing is well organized too, not to mention already mad popular. Hundreds showed up for this opening season game, with one a month scheduled. You can learn on your own how the game is played (I didn't know up till now) and even if you don't know or like me fear of someone getting badly hurt, it's still a blast. Adding two good punk/hardcore bands during intermissions make it a small event.

Two Man Advantage. Songs about hockey. And more songs about hockey.

Kenyon's favorite player name: Killer Tofu. Shannon's favorite player and name: Alison Chains
