Windy City Rollers, Trouble Helix and The Ivy King Cup

One week from tonight, I will be enjoying flat track roller derby action thanks to the Windy City Rollers.  This night is for the Ivy King Cup.  It's going to be a fun battle.
These ladies always compete hard.  Yes, they compete.  As I have previously written, this is competition.  It is not the theatrical derby of yesteryear.  These women are hard-working and athletic.  The points matter.  The wins matter.  The rules matter.It's a whole differebnt experience, but it is so much more enjoyable than the other form.
At their Black and Blue Gala, I talked to Trouble Helix, #260 for the Hell's Belles.  Of course, she was not wearing her uniform that night.  I admit, I had a rough time identifying some of the women.  They look pretty different without their helmets, uniforms and game-day faces.
Trouble Helix has been very helpful in her role as one of the press liaisons.  Because of TH and the rest o the WCR organization, it has been a real pleasure covering the sport and the women.
I encourage friends, family and readers to check out the WCR.  An entertaining night is a guarantee.  You can go to to learn more about the league.  Remember, next Saturday is the Ivy King Cup.  Don't miss it!
