Before I was CrossFit and dino-chow, I was a Texas Rollergirl. See?
That’s me, just after giving Sparkle Plenty a full-on body check that sent her flying into the audience. I really had a thing for Sparkle Plenty.
I’ve been thinking about my Derby days a lot this week for two reasons:
This Sunday, February 20 is the season opener for the Texas Rollergirls at their new venue: The Austin Convention Center. (Get your own tickets here.) I’ll be in the audience watching the carnage-on-wheels and hosting for Karaoke Apocalypse – double fun!
Tonight at 6:30 Central, I’ll be talking Derby on KAXE, the public radio station in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. I’ll be talking to Butterscotch Bitch of the Iron Range Maidens Roller Girls for her radio program RealGoodWords. Rollergirls and books – throw in some food and it would be most of my favorite things
And should you find yourself wanting to catch your own Derby fever, I encourage you to visit my Rollergirl Name Generator. Nothing – and I mean NOTHING – is as superhero aura-inspiring as giving yourself a kickass alter ego.
