I spent some time recently out of town visiting some friends that I haven’t seen in years. While just sitting around in a living room after an early supper, one of the boys comes in and says he’s going to the roller derby with some of his buddies.
Now I remember the roller derby back in the 70’s - a cross between a rocket sled on wheels and train wreck! I mean, arms, fists, and bodies flying everywhere, all the while going in circles.
As time when on, my curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to see one of these things again.
All I can say is, if you want to see a group of gals that are tougher than any NFL Linebacker, and no hold bars nothing but hair, teeth and eyeballs, then this insanity on roller skates - this is for you. How these people could get up repeatedly, and walk away from that mayhem is beyond me.
Pitch one of those ladies high and inside would probably end up with a pitcher being turned upside down, then driven into the ground like a cheap ten penny nail.
