NYSE took the lead early in the game with a 29 point jam by Starsky. I should back up and state that NYSE, as a League, has been a dominant force in men's derby for years. This bout was to be a learning experience for CDTA. And to be fair, there were a few A (B+?) players on NYSE's roster.
Let me get some numbers out of the way: the final score was 194-91, and Roarshock scored 49 of those points and was voted MVP. All of CDTA's jammers had to fight hard for their points, though - Roarshock, Jonny Malice, and Up End Atom faced solid and disciplined walls from the Dow Jones.
Meanwhile, CDTA's blockers faced some of the craziest jammers in the northeast. In my typical sunshine and rainbows bout recap fashion, I am going to hand select a few instances in which I caught some nice teamwork by CDTA.

ANYWAY - the other sweet part of the weekend was that we got to stay overnight with Massacre's sister and her husband in NYC. On Sunday we went to the Bronx Zoo which was awesome! I got to see one of my favorite animals: lemurs!! So, I will end this post with one more picture of some of my favorite handsome animals.
