Richter City Roller Derby. Hmm. Now, I understand that roller derby is all the rage at the moment - just log in to Twitter on a Saturday night and see how many times the #RCRD hashtag appears. I have a couple of friends who took up skating because of this movie. I'd heard that one of them was even becoming very good but it really wasn't my thing. I said no and was appropriately chastised.
I told my sweetie what I'd done; he was even less impressed than my friend! Then we discovered that one of our friends was due to make her big roller derby debut that night. Surely we had to go along and support the fabulous Tart N Skates? And so it was all on: Comic Slams vs last year's champions, Smash Malice.
I sat through the bout wondering what my roller derby name would be. The girls all have such kick-ass, theatrical names with costumes to match: Scary Maclary, Venom de Plume, Gin & Toxic, Jem Molition and Suffer Jet. Who could I be? Possibly Caffienator or Psycho Baker? I found a roller derby name generator that annointed me as Apocalypso BigBlocker. You heard it here first.
And so I am a roller derby virgin no more! Who else has been bitten by the roller derby bug? What's your roller derby name?
