Bring back the roller girls!
I love the caption under Ann Calvello's photo: "The Demon of Derby". Classic.
So here I am planning my road trip for tomorrow to Austin, Texas and I come across this great site txrd.com (Texas Roller Derby - Lonestar Roller Girls). This is a real live roller derby for women, owned and operated by the skaters. Long live Austin... Bringing back "the cool"! So, I had to share because these photos brought back memories of rollerskating in a wildly loud disco roller rink as a child. And I occasionally like to go back to that 70's place when things were simpler.
So the trip to the Lone Star state shall be long. It will probably be a grueling 20 hour drive, but it is worth it. We are considering the big move to Austin, one of my favorite cities in the country. I hope to live there one day soon.
