This is kick ass. I have a half-dozen or so friends that do this in Boston & NY, and it's total rock-the-fuck-out fun for everyone involved. I'm thinking about refereeing next year.

Interesting article. I havent seen this version of Roler Derby. I used to watch it alot as a kid in the 70's. It was fun to watch.

A friend of mine is Sylvia Wrath of the Debutante Brawlers in the Carolina Rollergirls organization. HA! Sylvia Wrath. Too funny.

i always wanted to skate in a roller derby when i was a kid. i sooo wanted to be randi whitman. and i liked the fact that the teams were co-ed too.

Great article, but is the following really true (i.e., "Is it happening everywhere and I've managed to miss it?"): "While conservative bigots in America are frantically trying to get women off the soccer pitch and back into the cheerleading closet . . ."

It has been happening almost everywhere.It costs like $10-$15 a ticket here in Austin,they serve Lone Star,and a bunch of different cheap beers.I think...maybe just Lonestar.Its great fun with live music and sexy tatooed suicide type girls.

I visited the aforementioned Carolina Rollergirls site. I might be interested in seeing this once if every woman on the roster didn't have an incredibly stupid fake name.
