Christianburg rains on Robin Souls’ parade
By Sunny Montgomery
On September 8, I attended the Rollergirls of Central Kentucky’s (ROCK) second to last home bout of the season against Christianburg, Virginia’s New River Valley Rollergirls (NRV), aka the Bruisin’ Burgs Rollergirls, who to my horror were sporting the same pink and black jerseys as ROCK.
Regular fans of the roller derby know the sport is fast-paced with lots of action. It can be difficult enough to follow without the added complexity of both teams dressed in the same colors. Twenty minutes before the bout began and already I was confused. This was not a good sign, in hindsight an omen of what was to come.
