Miss Paddy WhackHer, Stone Fox, and Messy Murderher Did NOT Get Arrested For Assaulting An Officer

Posted: March 13, 2012 in Written by Slam

On Sunday, March 11, WoRD took to the streets and skated in Worcester’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. An awesome time was had by all.

Skaters were told to meet at Sakura on Park Ave. at 11:00 a.m.  Getting there (at least for me) was a bit of a logistical nightmare. My GPS told me to go one way, a police officer made me go another way. Still, the event people were very helpful and once they knew I was in the parade, they let me park and find my people. And I found us! We were all pretty eager and ready to go, looking very festive in Kelly green and gold.

Bright and shiny

Taya Headoff (who’d been in the parade before) warned us that it’d be a loooong wait before we actually started marching, and she was right. It wasn’t too boring, though.  We skated around, stretched out, gossiped, joked.

Casa Bonita, Falkor! and Warlock Man ready to go!

Messy got cold and a little bored and decided to take a nap under WoRD's banner

Finally, at 1:50, we started to march… er, skate. We handed out fliers and waved to people, menaced them a bit, and skated. We thought they might like to see us do some tricks, so Stella jumped over Messy. Polite applause. What they really liked, as it turns out, was to see us fall. So we got a little more hard core and started hitting each other, taking whips, and falling. One big crowd pleaser was our knee falls. We’d wait until we were 20 or so yards back from the group in front of us, then we’d sprint as fast as we could and all 19 of us would do a double-knee fall– really hard on the laces and the toe covers, but the cheers were well worth it.

Then it happened.

The truly terrifying Miss Paddy WhackHer

I think Messy, Fox, and Paddy would describe it as the best part of their day– maybe even their life. A Worcester cop jumped into our path and yelled, “Come on, hit me!  Hit me!” And they did. All three of them. One after the other. Three shoulder hits from (and I speak from personal experience) three of the hardest hitters in our league. When I looked back the cop was, thankfully, still standing. Meanwhile, Fox was yelling elatedly, “I hit a cop!  I hit a cop!”

We reached the end of the parade and we stopped and visited with a few people for a while, handed out more fliers and gave info to women looking to be fresh meat, then we skated the 2 miles back to our cars (really fast, by the way. Fresh meat, work on that endurance). Even on the way back we were a hit (no pun intended). People yelled at us, begged us to hit them, told us we were awesome. I concur. We’re pretty awesome.

We have a lot of fun things coming up, too. If you want to be fresh meat, we have a new class starting in June. Email us at skate@worcesterrollerderby.com for info. And like us on Facebook.  We’ll keep you up to date on all of our happenings– including a very cool scrimmage coming up on March 25th. Look forward to hearing from you!
