MVP of the Week: Announcer John Maddening
"We are so sad to announce the retiring of a well-known voice(and suit wearer)!
John Maddening began announcing for MNRG in Season 3. Since he joined, he has missed only two bouts! He was one of the first in line for the first ever MNRG bout and became a season ticket holder when we moved to the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in Season 2.
He coordinated interleague bouts for the All-Stars with other teams and has travelled all around to announce at many bouts and tournaments. He served on the AFTDA (Association of Flat Track Derby Announcers). He's also the mastermind behind our Brickmania Mini-Fig collaboration!
His contributions to the league have been plentiful and go well beyond what was mentioned. He will be greatly missed and his shoes hard to fill.
Happy Birthday, Maddening, and thank you!
Catch his last evening with the mic THIS Saturday at Minnesota RollerGirls Present: Casino Roller!
Congratulations on retirement! Thanks for everything!
