Men’s bout preview: New York Shock Exchange @ Harm City Homicide
Posted by Justice Feelgood Marshall on October 12, 2007
The halftime of Charm City’s championship bout this Sunday sees the return of a Charm City championship tradition in a men’s derby exhibition. Last year the Charm City refs, playing co-ed, squeaked past the Pioneer Valley Dirty Dozen in a 15 minute expo, but this time it’s a full 20 minutes of the visiting New York Shock Exchange vs. the Harm City Homicide (your humble journalist’s team) in their home debut. Although the Shock Exchange often plays halftime exhibitions against themselves in the NY/NJ area, both teams have just one 40 minute bout under their belts: the Shock Exchange defeated Pioneer Valley 107-50 in April (although PVRD skated 7 players against 14 for NYSE) and the Homicide lost to Pioneer Valley 100-67 in September.
This bout has the distinction of featuring more referees playing in the game than will be officiating the match (eight: Homicide’s Justice Feelgood Marshall and Virginia Slim (Charm City), Shock Exchange’s Psycho Billy and Jefferee (Long Island) and Endless Justin, Hambone, Flying Squirrel and Mr. Rawk (Gotham)). The Gotham refs will all be skating under alter-alter egos: Endless Justin as Gordon Gekko, Hambone as Snausage, Flying Squirrel as Jonathan R and Mr. Rawk as Junk Bond. Doubtless the effect of having so many refs in the game will be that neither team will commit any penalties.
UPDATE: Shock Exchange delivers a solid schooling, winning 97-14 (full recap to come).
