Denver's first roller derby bout of the season went down on February 6 at the Fillmore Auditorium -- site of today's speech by President Barack Obama. It was a sold-out intra-league face-off between two of the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls' home teams, the Sugar Kill Gang and the Dooms Daisies. The Sugars were victorious.
