    I would LOVE to win tickets to surprise my girlfriend who just joined Corvallis’ Sick Town Derby Dames and has never been to see the amazing talent of Portlands Derby Girls Live!! Thank you in advance for your kindness!

  2. Jolene January 17, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    To say this would be fun would be an understatement! I’d take my younger sister if you’d pick me!

    Why do I want to go? Because my 12 year old daughter is trying desperately to fit in, and when we went to last year’s championship for the first time, she saw a group of women who were proud and strong, maybe a little different from the mainstream but confident in themselves and bonding with their teammates. Watching the RCR shows her that you can be and do whatever you want, no matter what others say about it. Plus, it’s kick ass.

  4. Rachael January 17, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    I really would love to take a break from moving this weekend to go see me some roller derby action. Please, please, please pick me!!!

  5. anna January 17, 2013 at 11:24 am #

    Roller derby is fun already but going VIP would really take it to the next level!

  6. Erica Rosser January 17, 2013 at 11:27 am #

    Roller derby! Never been. Would love to go! =]

  7. Bill W. January 17, 2013 at 11:34 am #

    Have yet to see the Rose City Rollers up close and personal. My time has arrived.

  8. Kim P January 17, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    I need to get out more. It’s only January and I feel I’ve been hibernating for half a year. Please and thank you!

  9. Bridget January 17, 2013 at 12:26 pm #

    I want to go

  10. Jamie January 17, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    Nothing is as invigorating as watching a bunch of strong, confident, bad ass women on wheels. I’d love to go and get inspired.

  11. Frank D'Andrea January 17, 2013 at 12:42 pm #

    I’ve been promising my 12 year old daughter a trip to the roller derby ever since she fell in love with “Whip It” and claimed she wanted to be in Roller Derby. Let’s bring her to her first match in style. Thanks, Frank

  12. Suzie January 17, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    This would be so fun to go to. I have never gone to one and have always heard good reviews about it.

  13. Jen January 17, 2013 at 12:59 pm #

    What coukd be more fun than watching some bad ass chicks go at it?! Would love to see them!

  14. Grant January 17, 2013 at 1:04 pm #

    I want to go to there!

  15. Vanessa sandoval January 17, 2013 at 1:16 pm #

    I want to see some badass women be badass. They give me courage!

  16. Ben January 17, 2013 at 1:41 pm #

    I’m trying for a great first date with this girl I met. She’s really nice but also super shy and told me she was emboldened by the confidence of the girls from roller derby. She works a lot and Saturday is the only night we can go out. She doesn’t know that the season opener is that night. It would be great to surprise her! …maybe she could even meet some of the girls. Thanks for considering it, – Ben

  17. VeXXed January 17, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    Girl Freaking Power! I love watching real women who love their real bodies kicking ass and having a great time!

  18. John January 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

    I want to go because I have never attended a roller derby before. Give me the tickets and break my cherry!

  19. Duke January 17, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    I want a bad ass girlfriend, and can you think of any women more bad ass then the Rode City Rollers? :)

  20. Megan Kelly January 17, 2013 at 3:46 pm #

    I have been dying to go to a Roller Derby event since I learned about the league last year! I’m excited at the opportunity to see the season opener and be inspired by the action and awesome athletes. Maybe one day I’ll have enough guts to join a team myself!
    Anyway, I’m a student and could never afford to get tickets in good seats, let alone have extra cash to buy drinks. Pick me!

  21. Amber January 17, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets because I’m new to the Portland, Oregon area from the midwest, and I’ve never been to a roller derby. And it sounds AWESOME. :)

  22. Jacque January 17, 2013 at 3:58 pm #

    Yes! I have never gone to the derby before. I need to get out and do something after not being employed for what seems like forever. Please choose my name.

  28. Kasey Krifka January 17, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

    My husband and I have only been to one Roller Derby match in Portland and it was a qualifier. Even still, I can’t seem to get it out of my head!! We are just dying to go.

  29. Frank Byers January 17, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

    I haven’t been to roller derby yet and I want to go.

  30. Sally January 17, 2013 at 4:29 pm #

  31. Teresa January 17, 2013 at 4:33 pm #

  32. free January 17, 2013 at 4:41 pm #

    so-i’ve only been to one roller derby match and i got kicked out for drinking in the parking lot. winning these tickets would mean i wouldn’t get kicked out at round 2! please?

  33. Stephanie January 17, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

    I’d love to take my husband and son and check this out!

  34. Susan January 17, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

    I would love to win and bring my daughters!

  35. Dave January 17, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

    The sight of seeing the Jammer burst into the pack of wouldbe blockers. scratching,clawing, fighting her way through and with one quick burst of speed she jams her way past to score. That’s why I want to go.

  36. birdonit January 17, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    I wish I was hardcore enough to be a roller girl, but I guess I’ll just have to watch instead. That’s true about a lot of things.

  37. hannah January 17, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    I’ve lived in PDX for 6+ years now and i’ve never gone to a rose city rollers event! I would love to start this weekend :)

    I’m wishing REALLY hard that I win tickets! How cool would it be to sit in the Spark section and cheer our home team on to victory! I promise I’ll yell as loud as I can. ;-)

  45. Jeffrey January 17, 2013 at 5:37 pm #

    My dream girl is the sister of one of the players on the Derby. Tickets to the ‘opener’ would be a great way to show support for the players and show my true love how much I care for her and her family.

  46. Tonia January 17, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    This would be a total GAS….I’ve just gotta go to this, and take pics….put your smiles on, ladies!

  47. Brady January 17, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    I would be forever changed if I had the chance to see the carnage on the roller rink, as perfectly executed by those ravenous, radiant, ravishing, ready to kick some ass, Rose City Rollers!

  48. Brady January 17, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

    I would be forever changed if I had the chance to witness the carnage on the roller rink, as perfectly executed by the ravenous, ravishing, radiant, “ready to kick some ass” Rose City Rollers!
