The Notorious VIP vs Flying Aces Preview
by Young $tunna
This Saturday, Feb. 28 the Sin City Rollergirls host their Season 10 opener as the Notorious VIP take on the Flying Aces at 6 p.m. followed by the Hoover Damned vs. the Tommy Gun Terrors at 8 p.m. at the Riviera Hotel & Casino.
The Flying Aces, who will be led by Gypsy Whips and Dixie Dash this season, can’t wait to get back on the track.
“We’ve been practicing hard and working on new stuff, and we can’t want to unveil it all at the game this Saturday,” Dixie said.
According to Dixie, last season, the Aces lost several veteran skaters and it was a rebuilding season for the ladies in blue.
“Everyone’s growth as individual skaters, as well as a team, was awesome to watch and we blossomed into a strong and supportive group that functions as a strong team on and off the track,” Dixie said. “We really came together and our gameplay and teamwork improved with each game.”
This season, the Aces have most of their roster returning again and they’re looking to take home the championship trophy as the number one Sin City Rollergirls home team.
For the Notorious VIP, Captain Sticky Fingers and Co-Captain Lisa Carr hope to lead their fellow glittery ladies to victory.
Last season, Sticky Fingers said the VIPs cherished every win, including the two times they beat the Hoover Damned, who were named Season 9 champions.
“That was super exciting for us,” Sticky Fingers said. “It was also awesome to see some of our rookie VIPs make a huge impact on the team and on the track.”
After losing a few skaters during the off-season to retirement or leave of absence, the VIPs are in the midst of a rebuilding year.
“We’ll be measuring our success by small victories on the 28th,” Sticky Fingers said. “If we can execute things that we’ve been focused on at practice, regardless of score, that’s a win for us!”
Sticky Fingers also said she hopes the team harnesses their potential and turns it into magic on the track.
“Watch out Season 10, the VIPs are coming for you!”
