Holiday Magic at the Movies

Some big screen classics are as much a part of the holiday season as gingerbread houses and generously spiked eggnog.  I mean, watching Flick’s tongue get stuck to the flag pole is practically inked on the Christmas calendar.  You’re probably used to catching the seasonal cinema at home on a cable channel as you fold laundry or take care of some other house chore.  Well, how about making it a little more magical this year — for both you and the kids?

Happy Brawlidays

Happy Brawlidays

Give the gift of derby this holiday season! Bring your family, bring your friends, bring your coworkers or just bring yourself to the DC Armory this Saturday, Dec. 18, to see the DC DemonCats fight it out against Scare Force One. Both teams will certainly be in the brawliday spirit as they trade gifts of hip checks and bruises.

This bout is sure to leave the Armory shaking, as these two teams—so far undefeated—will be fighting to take the lead this season. Scare Force One, who came out on top in Seasons 1 and 2, are eager to show their dominance over the Season 3 and 4 champion DemonCats. With a roster heavy on members of the DC All-Stars (Condoleezza Slice, Chinese Cheker, Marion Barrycuda, Velocityraptor, Soledad and Lois Slain), Scare Force has a strong base. But the DemonCats are confident that smart strategy can get them ahead.
