Girls on Skates

Have you heard? Houston has an all girl roller derby league in training. Roller Derby people. Roller Derby. The Houston league is brand new and completely skater run. Why do I know this? Because one of my co-workers is a roller derby girl.

I know you are curious. You can meet the skaters on Saturday, April 23rd because they will be holding a fundraiser at the Montrose Skate Shop (3202 White Oak in the Heights) from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. It will be a combination Car Wash, Yard Sale, Bake Sale to begin raising money for operating expenses.

The skaters will also be rolling in the Art Car Parade and the league will hopefully be up and running in the Fall.

Roller Derby people. Roller Derby.

    Rock & Roll! How ironic that a few weeks ago, I saw an old movie (like mid-1970s) called Rollerball where the two main competing teams were from New York City and HOUSTON!

    Houston can not get any cooler!

    A bleached-blonde mama
    With a streak of mean
    She knew how to knuckle
    And she knew how to scuffle and fight”

    This is it! After a rigorous ten months of training, the Houston Derby Girls are ready to break out the proverbial whips and chains, and duke out their frustrations on 4 wheels. Music fit to wake the Dead by Zipperneck and Tar Baby. Something for everyone, down to the rockin

    Someone needs to post this as an entry! Someone with guts, pride, and someone who will GO!

    Maybe… someone…. like me?! Well, take away the pride part and it would be me.
