The all-female brigades in the amateur Brewcity Bruisers roller-derby league swiftly circle the U.S. Cellular Arena rink during competitive bouts that feature local skating squads. The home-opening double feature commences with a contest between the Betty Clobber-led Maiden Milwaukee and the Shevil Knevils, whose co-captain Moby Nipps dodges opponents and harpoons launched at her by confused, wood-legged seafarers. Servin’ Justice guides the Crazy Eights into a subsequent battle against the tossed elbows and aggressive gliding of the Rushin’ Rollettes. Spectators can nestle into first-come, first-served general-admission seating, and fans ages 18 and older can plop themselves down on a floor-only trackside spot. The 2012 season’s bouts also enchant spectators with halftime entertainment such as beer-bottle races and PowerPoint presentations on how to heckle rollerbladers.
