Delinquent Dames in a mad race to capture the title! The Nutcrackers' dance school dropouts take on the Cosmonaughties, BDD's resident Reds, for the chance to yank the Championship crown from the Wicked Pissahs teased tresses.

The Nutcrackers found themselves stuck in neutral against Wicked Pissahs in the first bout of Season Two and suffered an ignoble 142-41 defeat, but rallied to speed past the Cosmonaughties 69-42 in their next outing. When it was the Cosmo's turn to take the line against the Pissahs, they brought high octane derby energy, but still fell victim to townie teamwork with a 103-64 loss.

Now the Nuts and Cosmos are revving their engines, greasing their wheels, and sharpening their nails as they prepare for a match-up that will send one team to the championship and one team back to detention.

With hell-on-wheels jammers like Sarah Doom and Baby Fighterfly, and hard hitters like two-time MVP Quick Sandy, the Nuts can taste the super unleaded tang of victory. But with the mighty whomp of Cosmo blockers Anna Wrecksya and Pussy Venom, and the all-around awesomeness of Tiny Twins Claire D. Way and Maura Buse, the Nuts might end up with little more than a mouthful of space dust.

Not content to sit back and watch, the Wicked Pissahs (whose undefeated record gives them a bye for the championships) have invited the Night Terrors from Baltimore's Charm City Rollergirls for an expo bout to kick the night off.

Halftime music by Boston's own Swinedells:
  • 1 part R&B
  • 1 part Rockabilly
  • 1 part 50's Rock and Roll
  • 1 part punk rawk
  • 6 drunken buffoons
  • a dollop of pomade
Combine ingredients with a washtub full of Miller High Life and set it in the garage till it starts to stink.

The legendary Fez Room after party action continues, with DJ Boo Boo Danger keeping the dance floor hot and sweaty until midnight.

Toy Drive for Children's Hospital Boston

We're trying to help fill the wishlist of the kids and staff on the 10th floor, the Surgical Transplants and Implants department. The items on this list are things that the children use on a daily basis. All the items are cleaned and sterilized after each use, which really shortens a toys life.

Drop off new and gently used, clean toys at the merch table and receive a BDD sticker, plus our sincere thanks. We'll be making a donation in person, and invite you to sign a card to the kids from all of us.
