2016 BAD Roller Derby Champions

“If the Good Lord had intended us to walk, he wouldn’t have invented roller skates.” (from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)

On Saturday, two teams skated in circles and one team would be able to hold a trophy at the end of the bout.

Last year the Berkeley Resistance won. This year they won again.

Rocket Dog Rescue also attended the Bay Area Derby Championships. Rocket Dog Rescue attended two years ago. This leads other related questions. If God had wanted us to be alone, would he or she have created dogs? (Or if God had wanted dogs to be alone, would humans have been created?)

So, walk this way and view the two galleries from #BADchamps2016. I recommend that you play a Gene Wilder movie in the background.

Berkeley v Oakland Final

Richmond v San Francisco 3rd Place

Since the Bay Area Derby championships, Gene Wilder died. The opening quote is from Willy Wonka, one of the first movies that I loved. I also included a reference to another Gene Wilder movie. Without realizing it, I appreciated how his comedy was relatable and layered. It was smart, sincere and funny, without appearing to be overly intellectual.
