Close encounters of the third kind for Omens and Belles

HOME is where the heart is – and it’s also where the action is for a lot of up-and-coming skaters at Glasgow Roller Derby.

The travel teams – Irn Bruisers and Maiden Grrders – contain the cream of the crop in the league, but Home Teams bouts are a terrific way to see international players skate alongside emerging talents making their debuts and the cult heroes strutting their stuff.

Saturday, November 9, was not only D-day for the Home Teams finalists Death Stars and Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, it was also the date of the play-off for third place.

Home Teams – the Final … Death Stars vs Dinosaurs!

And so it all came down to this - 18 players, forty minutes, two halves and a whole lotta derby.

Death Stars and Tyrannosaurus Wrecks collided in the final of Glasgow Roller Derby's Home Teams on Saturday (November 9) in a bid for the bragging rights and the grooviest trophy this side of The Hydra.

Pesky winter bugs, war wounds and clashing schedules saw both sides down to a depleted playing squad of nine for the day - ensuring it would be a strength-sapping shift for all the skaters involved.

COMING together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

So said car tycoon Henry Ford, who knew a thing or two about engines, teamwork and firing on all cylinders.

If the Irn Bruisers were a car they would be a cross between a DeLorean, Greased Lightning and Mad Max's V8 Interceptor - with a sprinkling of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, of course.

The Bruisers revved up to take on Rainy City Roller Girls on Saturday (October 26) and hit the accelerator from the first whistle.

Bruisers edge out Berlin in thrilling bout

The jammer slowly taps her hips and then raises her arms aloft, fists clenched – sparking wild celebrations among her exhilerated, exhausted team-mates and the capacity crowd.
I'm not sure what the German is for that feeling between goosebumps and delight, but that was the sensation shared by everyone who watched this engrossing roller derby tussle between two teams of the highest calibre.

Bad Omen for the Death Stars

Sep

THE Superbowl has a pretty jazzy start and the Olympics opening ceremony is good, but when you want to kick off a sporting conquest with a dash of genius and a twist of fun you just cannae beat Glasgow Roller Derby’s Home Teams.
Case in point – Saturday (Aug 31) the seemingly unstoppable Death Stars skate out in their sky-blue t-shirts waving lightsabers menacingly to the tune of Darth Vader’s 'Imperial March'. One by one the Death Stars kill each other until all lie ‘dead’. Then they get up to cheers from the crowd and admiring cries.

Okay pretty awesome.
Then come the Bad Omens - wearing blood red shirts adorned with a crow and a crescent moon – skating out to Carmina Burana (also known as the thundering theme song from The Omen). But hang on, that looks like Darth Vader … then the record changes to a funked-up version of the song played by the chrome-domed aliens in Mos Eisley Cantina in Star Wars. Yep, Darth Vader is dancing to a jazz number played by a space band while Bad Omens bust a move alongside. It’s far and away skate-out of the day and the Death Stars can only laugh and clap along. The atmosphere was noticeably more chillaxed for this, the second of the day’s double-header. With the Death Stars already safe in the final with two wins under their blaster belts, it was up to the Bad Omens to pop their cherry and stop the Stars from shining three games on the trot. It was an especially memorable occasion for Death Star Disco Brawl – playing her last bout before packing up her Millennium Falcon and heading back to Australia.
