I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- there is no better entertainment value dollar for dollar than a Boston Derby Dame bout.
The eclectic crowd, the hard hitting fast paced action, the music, the announcers. The shit is off the chains entertaining believe me. These girls mean business.

Montreal and the Massacre have met several times over the last few seasons, but this marks the Skids’ first trip to Shriner’s Auditorium. They’ll br bringing their neon to Boston for the Massacre’s home opener. Long known for their good humor and amazing half-time shows, Montreal spent 2010 showing the WFTDA world what’s up on the track. They swept their games at Philly’s East Coast Extravaganza and made their first appearance at Eastern Regionals. Boston defeated them in the first round of regionals, but Montreal put up a scrappy fight. They’re likely looking for revenge, and this time on Boston’s home track. Keep your eye on two phenomenal Skids jammers, Iron Wench and Ewan Wotarmy. Both have been known to sprint to 20 point jams. Their blockers are no slouches either, with Jess Bandit and Smack Daddy doing serious damage in the pack.
The last these two teams saw of each other, the Cosmos were skating to a playoff’s victory while the Nuts settled in for the third place in the 2010 home team standings. There’s a lot to prove in the home opener, and the Nuts would like to take home a victory fresh out of the gate. The Cosmos, always a bridesmaid, never a bride, are looking to kick off what they hope will finally be a Golden Fez Championship season in 2011.
The Boston Derby Dames are Boston’s first and only all-female, DIY, skater-owned and operated flat track roller derby league and proud members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
