the next bout is a doubleheader, which is 2 bouts. each of the bouts are an hour long and consist of two 30 minute periods with a break in between. you don't always see blood. we have had bleeding and broken bones before, but not every bout has all that. we were lucky to not have any bad injuries this time around. the time before that, we had someone carried out on a stretcher due to a concussion. we've had someone break their leg in a spiral fracture. it's a little different than the old school roller derby because we've got a set of rules that don't allow us to punch, push, or elbow people. however, it's still pretty damn brutal. i've gotten a cracked rib before cuz people throw their whole weight into ya. heh. and we're also on flat ground and not on a banked track. so it is a little bit different, but it's still a lot of fun to watch.
you'll see a lot of girls in short skirts knocking each other down. that's pretty much what you'll see.
