It’s the goddamn Roller Derby!

Smash Malice vs Comic Slams 28

This Saturday. Brutal Pageant! Smash Malice! And a whole heap of screaming fans! Be there! Or be that person who says “I’ve always wanted to go to Roller Derby, what’s it like?” Nobody likes that person. Don’t be them!

Wanna win some tickets? Of course you do! Leave a comment saying how much you want to go to the Roller Derby and you could win a double pass. DOUBLE PASS!

We’re gonna draw this at midday today so hurry up!

I want to go to the roller derby so much that I’m going to go regardless of whether or not I win tickets! That’s true love right there.
Winning tickets will mean I have beer and chips money for the bout though and that would be cool.

Sad to say my friend and I are currently “those people” – PLEASE save us!! We’re super keen to head along on saturday, keener than a lima bean. What is a lima bean? Not exactly sure, but we’ll eat one if you’ll give us tickets!

I would LOVE to win the tickets! I know at least 3 people who will be participating so it would be AWESOME to go see them. We’re very poor at the moment so a double pass from wellingtonista would be a LIFE SAVER!!!!

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to relax and unwind from a stressful week of non-sleeping toddler, bleeding nose accident and being interviewed for my own job by screaming, jump, whooping and hollering at chicks in fishnets on wheels

PICK ME PLEASE! PICK ME! Help me to stop being that person that everyone hates saying “I’ve always wanted to go to Roller Derby, what’s it like?”.

I would LOVE to go to the roller derby!!! Always wanted to see a bunch of whipped up feisty ladies on wheels giving hell to each other, but for some reason Ive always got prior engagements when its on. Now I am free but have no cash :(
Help me out puhleeeease!


Cas May 18, 2012 at 10:16 am

Of course I’m going anyway, but damn, winning stuff is so sweet! I really love winning things!

Eeeeeeee, pick meeeeeeeeeeeeee! I would just love to take my wonderful mum, along with my gorgeous sister and her girlfriend (who are regular and enthusiastic followers, despite being DIRT poor students) for an evening out where we can bond over beer, awesome outfits, shoulder barges and spiffing skilled skating ACTION. I’ve been once before, and desperately desire to become a regular… and would also love to make one of my mum, too!! We will be the intergenerational skating ladies appreciation society, we will have costumes, we will shriek and we will dance our appreciation from the sidelines! BRING IT ON, BRUTAL PAGEANT and SMASH MALICE! (Slightly OT: weren’t Comic Slams just unbelievable in that final round of the last bout?)

One of my best mates is playing for her new team for the first time and I really really really really really really reeeaaalllyyy want to come see her and the others play but have not got the cash to come in from paraparaumu and get tickets, help me out pretty please!


Kate May 18, 2012 at 11:13 am

I would LOVE to win tickets! My friend is making her derby debut this bout and her huz is making his ref debut too, it would mean the world to be able to support them!

My desire to hit up the God Damn Roller Derby is probably equivalent to the Facebook IPO in size. Clearly, however, one of these is more entertaining than the other.


Anna May 18, 2012 at 12:00 pm

I’ve never roller derbied before, and this makes me sad. Please make my derby dreams come true!

Is the season almost over already?


Hadyn May 18, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Thanks for all the entries. The winner (as generated by because no way was I going to try and pick a winner based on those sad stories!) was SARAH DILLON. As per your comment, you must now eat a lima bean.

Sarah I’ll email you shortly with the details.
