Search being busted right now, I went back through all three pages of visible threads and didn’t find anything, SO:
Let’s talk about Roller Derby.
A friend of mine who announces the derby matches in Montreal was up in Toronto a few weeks ago, and invited me to come to a game with him. We were seated right on the arena floor next to the track, behind the starting line. I will admit I was unenthusiastic to start with, but by the end of the first bout I was yelling and screaming just like the rest of the fans.
It’s a little trashy, I’ll admit (okay, it’s a lot trashy, but it’s fun trashy), but most of those very skinny women could break me in two and the bigger ones could stick my bits back together afterwards.
So now I’m hooked, and I’m waiting for my rollerskates to arrive in the mail.
Any other derby fans on the Dope? Any Derby Girls? Anyone have any tips on how I fall on my (artificially padded) knees instead of my (less artificially padded) ass while learning how to skate?
