Providence, RI– It has been over a year since the Old Money Honeys, defending champions of Providence Roller Derby, have played the 2008 underdogs, the Sakonnet River Roller Rats. On August 28, 2009 these two teams will take to the track and show each other what a year can do.

Whoever said the ladies that make up the Old Money Honeys are nice girls have allowed looks to deceive them! Under their white cardigans and pressed tennis skirts are scratches and scars from day after day of earnest skating practices. Sass E. McNasty, captain of the Old Money Honeys enforces the motto “work hard, play hard” to get her girls in shape mentally and physically for bout day. The most notable trait of the Old Money Honeys is their knowledge of every player in the league. As a tight knit group of gossip girls, these ladies use what they know to their advantage. In their bout against the Mob Squad, jammers Hysterica!, Baby Fighterfly and Rhoda Perdition racked up some serious points while solid pack members Shelby Brusin and Cindy Lou Screw held a solid front wall. In this bout it is imminent that sneaky divas, Foxie Renard, Barbie Biturate and Sally Riot will start some drama, drama and call on fellow teammates Burnin’ Helen, Leonard DiCapitator and Robin DaPoints to help them get what they want. F’Shizzy Borden of the Old Money Honey says of the upcoming bout, “I think its going to be tough. The Rats are smart and play tight. But the Honeys have a bond that is pretty hard to break. I feel confident about it”.

It is true, the Rats have a pack that is hard to break and since their defeat against the Mob Squad last month they have gained the zenergy they have all been working for over the last 12 months. In last months bout newbie Rats Cru-hella Da’Kill, Hellcat Lucy, Maul E. Crue and Shamblock proved themselves and have since been training with the supreme ninja captain of the Rats, Craisy Dukes. When asked about the upcoming bout, Craisy Dukes states, “The last time we met the Old Money Honeys our bodies showed up for the first half of the game, and then our brains joined us for the second half. We’ve been training in the bat cave for almost a whole year now to synch the two. Last year we were the soldiers. This year we are the warriors. We’re ready for battle”. Seasoned ninjas, Hot Sauce, Kid Ace, Malady D’Amour and Trophy Knife will maintain their cool as the Honeys attempt to break their focus. They will use their forces to work closely with teammates Desire DIE-r, Hot Apple Cry, Machete Betty and Suplex. The mental connection between the Rats will allow them to shut out the white noise of the Honeys until the bitter end.

Providence Roller Derby is proud to present Pariah Beat who will be performing during halftime. Music will be spun all night long by our favorite DJs, DJ Breezee and The Count. Come watch the last home season bout before the championships!
