Gotham Girls Intraleague Championship Bout Recap

Last weekend, Shrimp Scampi and I headed to NYC for the Gotham Girls Intraleague Championship bout featuring the Bronx Gridlock vs the Queens of Pain. Bronx Gridlock features notable skaters such as Bonnie Thunders and Ginger Snap. Queens hosts my fave Gotham Girl, The Beirut Bombshell, as well as Hyper Lynx and Suzy Hotrod.

Scamp and I got down to the City on the earlier side, and spent the afternoon in Union Square and made a pit stop in Times Square as well. Scamp got like 3lbs of Hellions colored M&Ms from the M&Ms World store! My favorite candy!

Anyway - the bout. The Bronx took the lead off the bat but Queens was close behind. I have never seen a Gotham intraleague bout before, so it was really interesting to see Bonnie Thunders faceoff against Suzy Hotrod (and also apparently the last time anyone will see it... maybe...especially as speculated by someone in the costume contest).

This bout also featured Hyper Lynx as a jammer frequently, which was neat because Gotham's top jammers in interleague play include Bonnie and Suzy, with Hyper Lynx being more of a backup jammer. I love watching her play, though. It was also interesting to see Bonnie and Suzy faceoff against each other. I've never seen more jammer on jammer action - they both really go after each other if they are neck and neck as they race around the track.
More thoughts and pics after the jump

Overall, I didn't find that either team played a very physical game, but I saw lots of great positional blocking. I asked Bombshell about this after that bout and she noted that it's not really the style of the intraleague bouts to have excessive hitting. But I've seen Gotham Girls pack a punch in interleague bouts, so I'm ready to catch them this weekend at the WFTDA Championship.

It was really sweet to watch Bombshell play as a Gotham Girl. She's the one who taught me to hold the line and I saw her guard it like a champ. She also got to play pivot a couple times, which is cool. I got a picture with her and Hyper Lynx after the game.

Bronx Gridlock celebrates their victory.
After an exciting game, the Bronx Gridlock beat the Queens of Pain 132 to 98. Bonnie Thunders scored 91 out of Bronx's 132 points - 69%! That's a new Gotham Girls record for most points scored in a game. She beat the previous record, her own, of 88 points.

Some other cool things from this bout:

-Someone was proposed to! I am not sure if it was a real proposal or a derby wife proposal, but it appears there was a ring involved.


  1. This WAS a real proposal! It was mine! I was the Abraham Lincoln that proposed at half-time. Do you happen to have any more photos because the ones that we took are terrible! Thank you!
