Morristown Madams Seek Win Over Bar Brawling High Rollers

This Saturday, June 14th, the Morristown Madams Women’s Roller Derby will be skating their last home game of the summer in the Morristown Rink located at 38 Dumont Place. The cute-n-brutal Madams will be battling it out with Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania’s “bar fight on wheels”, the Pocono High Rollers.

The Madams are coming off a two loss streak, and they’re determined to end it here. According to League President, Dee Licious spectators can expect an extremely hard hitting and fast paced bout, she added, “We are going to spank the High Rollers and send them home crying.” The Madams are not taking lose for an answer this time!

Injured Jammer, Bruta LEE, will be making her return to the rink after a back injury she sustained at the Madams’ last home bout in April. Lee has been aching to get back in for several weeks, but team Captains Yula G and Sophia Low-Rent chose to keep her rested until this bout, this strategic move is much like a baseball team resting their pitchers before the play-offs.

Rockets’ Red Glare, the Madams house band will be performing pre-game, half-time and post game. If you can't make it for the bout, stop by the Madams' newest sponsor, The Grasshoper off the Green after 9PM for the after-party.

Always charitable, the Madams will be donating non perishable goods as well as comfort and hygiene products to send to our troops in Iraq. Please bring a bag of goodies for the troops (no bar soap or canned goods, please) to the bout and it will be collected at the door.

The rink opens at 6:30 PM and the first whistle blows at 7:00. Tickets are $10 in advance from, $12 at the door, senior and student tickets are $5 and children under 12 get in for free. If you bring your ticket stub from last weekend’s NJ Revolution game, you can get your ticket for pre-sale prices. Please bring a chair with you, seating can be very limited.

Madams fall to Vixens by 18

June 8, 2008 - The Morristown Madams made the 75 mile trek out to Macungie, PA yesterday to tussle with the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls’ Special Vixen’s Unit.

The injury laden Madams were forced to round out their roster with borrowed players from Suburbia Roller Derby of Westchester, NY. Even with a final score of 132 – 114 in favor of the SVU, the Madams are extremely proud of their performance. “We did great,” said Madams Co-captain Sophia Low-Rent, “especially in the 115 degree heat.” She added, “We couldn’t have done it without Suburbia.”

The Morristown Madams will be looking for revenge on November 1, 2008 when they play the SVU on their home turf in Morristown.
