Silicon Valley Dot.Kamikazes vs Rat City's Sockit Wenches

Rat City's Sockit Wenches travel all the way to Silicon Valley for a bout versus the Dot.Kamikazes!

This was a cool bout for me because it's the first time I've seen any of the Rat City home-league teams play since my very first ever bout in 2007!   Back when Pia Mess played for the Sockit Wenches. I want to get back to Seattle to see some some Rat City home-league play. It hasn't worked out so far this year.... but I read on the internet that Rat City's home leagues are playing Rose City's home leagues in Portland in December.  Maybe I'll make it up north for those bouts.

In the here! and now! the Sockit Wenches take on the Dot.Kamikazes!  Some photo highlights!

 I know that some photographers, when they use off-camera flash, like the look of a well lit venue (even if it's a dimly lit roller rink in reality), but for now I'm really digging this skating in a cave look.  San Jose Skate is a "cave" but the reality is that it isn't quite this jet-black dim there

This is kinda funny.  This isn't the first time that the announcers, Skootr Ovr and Timothy Jordan have taken over the little box usually reserved for photographers in the in-field (apex of turns three and four).

skooter!  timothy!

As it turns out, those Monterrey girls are devoted fans too.

Ack! The shutter of my fancy camera died with about 5 minutes to go.  Team photos with my fancy phone.
