If you want to catch some of the derby-tastic action, you can head on over to O’Hanlon’s where they’re showing the games live.

UPDATE (3:28pm): The third place game between England and Australia is on right now. I’m watching it in another tab, in fact. It’s 147 England, 66 for Australia. Coming up later this afternoon, the gold medal game between Canada and the USA. You can watch it all live at the Derby News Network.
UPDATE (4:10pm): The 2011 World Cup final between Canada and USA is on now!
UPDATE (5:10pm): Ooooh. It’s halftime. And it’s not going well for Canada. So not well that I can’t type the score. You’ll have to go to DNN (or O’Hanlon’s) yourself.
FINAL UPDATE: The USA swept the first Roller Derby World Cup, winning the gold medal round against Canada, 336 to 33, it pains me to type. (Read Justice Feelgood Marshall’s game summary at the Derby News Network here.) Earlier in the day, England took third place, beating Australia, 203 to 85.
