October Skater of the Month: Bagel Insanity

[2 Oct 2013 | No Comment]

Still a relative newcomer to the league, Bagel Insanity has quickly found a place in both the Crimes and B-Keepers’ blocking schemas.  He is still raw and has a lot of potential to develop into a fantastic blocker.  He is the October Skater of the Month!  He is Bagel Insanity!

[2 Sep 2013 | No Comment]

As a member of the South Grand Slammers local Team and both the B-Keepers and the Travel Team, Hand Rail has steadily developed into a solid jammer.  His combination of speed and agility make him a nightmare for opposing jammers and he is only going to get better.  He is the September Skater of the Month, he is Hand Rail!

[1 Aug 2013 | One Comment]

Poppa Choppa burst onto the scene a couple years ago.  What he lacked initially in skating skill he more than made up for with determination and dedication.  He soon became a physical presence on the track that you always had to account for.  As a member of the Rockets, he solidified an excellent blocking corps that won the 2012 Turf War Championship.  He is also probably the only men’s derby player with TRIPLETS!  He is the August Skater of the Month, he is…POPPA CHOPPA!

#2 vs #3 as GateKeepers take on rival New York!

[24 Jul 2013 | No Comment]

Rivalry.
The word takes on a whole new meaning when applied to sports.  The action gets more intense.  The emotions get stronger.  The fans get louder.  The game simply means more.  Look at the NFL and MLB.  When the Bears play the Packers those two cities practically shut down.  When the Yankees play the Red Sox its national news.  In the MRDA, that rivalry goes to St. Louis and New York and the fifth meeting of these two titans takes place this Saturday night at the Midwest Sports Hockey Complex at …
