The sport of Roller Derby has been around since 1930’s, and was very popular in the 1940’s. Over the next few decades the sport was overshadowed by the entertainment value and was similar to professional wrestling. With flashy costumes, outlandish characters, and scripted outcomes.
In the early 2000’s the sport made a resurrangce. While they did retain the flashy costumes and outlandish characters… the sport is legit.
The sport is mostly comprised of amatuer all female teams, and these woman are known for their nasty hits and top notch skating skills as much as there cool costumes and nifty names.
My good friend, Betty Ford Galaxy @bfg12, was a big part of this revival. If you are curious about it, she stars in a documentary; Blood On The Flat Track: The Rise Of The Rat City Rollergirls.
Over the years I have gone to watch her play a few times each year, and what a blast.
