I know, I know. You’re thinking, “You’ve cat to be kitten me right meow. I don’t have time fur roller derby!” But this is the last one of the season! Don’t let other temptations give you paws about showing up!

Er, okay, that was a little weird. Well, anyway, Dr. Pumpkin Fabrizio implores you to treat yo’self this weekend: skip the meowvies, come to the bout, and bring your girlfriend! Whisker away to see the Blue Ridge blockers knock down some frisky jammers.

Whatever you do, make sure you’re not late! The first bout starts at 5 p.m, and the second bout begins at 7 p.m. Don’t worry—you’ll only have to shell out $13 to see both bouts. Bring your friends so they don’t get snappy with you, and take lots of pictures so you’ll have turtle recall of all the hard hits.

Wait, did we forget to mention that it is $2 beer night? Just don’t end up like Duffles, who might be feline a bit drunk after those nine Meowler Lites.

Still not convinced? Elsa and Waggle would like to remind you that it is going to be raining cats and dogs this weekend. Therefore, there will be too many poodles to enjoy any outdoor activities!

You will have so much fun watching derby at the Cellular Center that you must stop by the merch booth on your way out for some cool BRRG swag. Take it from Stoney—scarves are pawsome and will give you a new leash on life! Don’t worry—the scarves aren’t made with fleace.
