Roller Derby Is Hot Again

Say What? Roller Derby Queen Gets Gussied Up to Kick Ass


"I can wear bright red lipstick and go out and play because I want to look good while I'm hitting somebody or while I'm taking somebody out."

— Lyndsay Trader, an education administrator who skates for the roller derby league RollerGirls under the name "Mitzi Massacre." She's part of a growing number of women joining roller derby leagues, which were big in the '60s and '70s — on television, anyway. A true sign of its cultural relevance? Whip It, the Drew Barrymore-directed film starring Ellen Page about roller derby leagues opens today.

I've always thought this would be so much fun, though these women would snap me like a twig. Whip It is on my to see list.

I used to skate with the Gotham Girls in NYC before. Oh, how I miss those days. *sigh*
