Richmond, CA, October 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Bombers and pro Roller Derby have become a smash hit again! The American Roller Skating Derby (ARSD), the league the Bombers skate in, has recently been featured in major shows such as Seinfeld's "The Marriage Ref" which airs on NBC and TLC's "The Ultimate Cake Off." Newly signed Bombers woman's captain, Patsy Delgado and her husband appeared in "The Marriage Ref" episode.
Bombers' GM, Jim Fitzpatrick, stated, "Returning to the Richmond Memorial Auditorium has been a goal of mine. Richmond was a long time home of the Bombers back in the sport's hey day. Now that we're back and attracting huge crowds in SF and elsewhere, we're expecting a big turnout on Nov 5th! Recently myself and my team have come on board with the Dick Butkus Foundation's 'I Play Clean' campaign to end steroid abuse among young athletes. At half time we're going to invite all the youths attending the game to come down to the track and take the pledge to avoid steroids. I'm hoping to break the record of having the most youths take it at one time. Little league coaches, teachers and mentors are also more than welcome to come down and take the pledge! We appreciate the City's Recreation Department's support!"
All youths attending are invited to take the Dick Butkus Foundation's "I Play Clean" campaign pledge to avoid steroids at halftime.
