    Never been to a live roller derby but sounds awesome. Grew up watching on TV many years ago, it use to get brutal sometimes.
    Would love to take the wife as she’s never been either.

    I heart Avalance and I want to watch her kick some serious ass!

    This would be a kick in the pants to see. I loved watching the females slam into each other when they were on TV (on an angled track, even). Would be really fun to watch with some of my friends in person.

    I would LOVE and be THANKFUL for the oppurtunity to watch a derby game. When I was younger we’d get all the kids from the neighborhood and ride our bikes, roller skates, and scooters while we practiced different tricks! It would be awesome to see people with passion for roller derby!
