ever considered roller derby?

Tonight I was driving home and noticed a roller skating rink but a stones throw off I-80!  The back door was open and the place appeared empty but the lights were on.  Not many people in Reno roller skate on Wednesdays.

What if I were into roller derby?  There are so many reasons why I would love to be involved with roller derby.  At the top of my list, however, is that I would get to explain it to my friend, family and followers.  Wikipedia describes roller derby so well!…”Roller derby is an American-invented contact sport—and historically, a form of sports entertainment—based on formation roller skating around an oval track, with points scored as certain players lap members of an opposing team. In past decades, roller derby had been primarily aprofessional or paid sport for both women and men. Contemporary roller derby is international, predominantly female, typically operates on an amateur (or unpaid) circuit, and has a strong do it yourself ethic which often features both athleticism and a satirical punk third-wave feminism aesthetic.”

It got really interesting there at the end!
