Roller Derby

A friend suggested I join the local Roller Derby. I'm seriously considering it.

What do you think?

Tape up your ankle...real good.

I would recommmend buying stock in duct tape.

From what I can remember from watching it on TV in my youth (yes they did have TV back then). The thing you have to worry about is your butt, since so many of them landed on it, when knocked down.

Good point. Look at this.

There's a local arena rink right next to the bar I frequent, and the women skaters come in after matches. Not a happy bunch--they don't want to talk to anyone. They look mightily pissed off, too, most of the time.

Actually, come to think of it, they remind me of both my ex-wives!!!

N.S.J.R.S.H.-R.: I was specifically told to join one league and not the other -- perhaps because of the attitude of the Derby Queens.

Maybe you just have that effect on women??? :-P

I think you are going to get some bruises.

La Sirena said...

I think it's a good guarantee.

I love that kind of stuff.

No better exercise than fun.
Even if you wind up dead..
You end on a high.

Can I come?

You've discovered my secret!

Twit -- I can not exercise for exercise's sake. To me, going to a place like a gym so you can jog on a conveyor belt is way past weird. And I've got the figure to prove it. Exercise is one of the selliing point of RD. Others are: ~sanctioned, mild violence
~silly pseudonyms

N.S.J.R.S.H.-R.: Yup. I'm reading your mind.

La Sirena,
Love the roller derby sketch. May I use it in a Maine Roller Derby event flyer?

Please email me at for confirmation. Thanks.
