I Love Rollerderby


Last night's episode was ok. The Hellcats came in last, last year, so they trained like maniacs, developed more as a team, had physical development and team cohesion; then they still lost to the Holy Rollers, who had none of the above. Draw your own life lessons.

The Rollergirls link below has a "generate your own Rollergirl name" feature. I entered Aunt B's and got "Tight Mixer".

I caught A&E's new series Rollergirls last night. I've been meaning to go to see the Atlanta RollerGirls for a while, but all my friends were too hung over, and then the season ended.

Rollerderby is like if the WWF and Burlesque had an illegitimate daughter. It's naughty without being dirty. It's one continuous catfight; always entertaining.

It's right up my white trash alley.


  • does the illegitimacy of the child directly impact the image I am supposed to produce of the WWF and Burlesque producing, or is the child legitimate because, in this country, only one man and one woman can legally marry, so any child of the WWF and Burlesque would have to be illegitimate?

  • Put away you left wing wackin' stick. It just fit in with the trailer park genre.
    Although, Bravo, for fitting in gay marriage and society's criticism of single motherhood.

    No chip there.

  • Is it wrong that I find this fight a little hot?

  • Wow. Can I count that as 2 compliments separately? You should have taken my comment as a compliment. I'm a big fan of describing things as offspring of two things, but it never occured to me add the descriptor "illegitimate." So, I was genuinely curious about your thoughts of what it added. I intend to now make use of it whenever it fits the description - especially when it creates a sense of redneck or pseudo-liberal. Thanks.

  • I can't think of Roller Derby without thinking of Jim Croce
