Did somebody lift this article from a grade-school newspaper, or is this guy actually serious? What a condescending pile of garbage.
Having several friends who participate in roller derby in Memphis, I assure you that these gals are real athletes, they take it very seriously, and few other "weekend-warrior" sports have more passion for what they do. Those who participate really seem to enjoy it, and they take the injuries in stride, just like all of us do who still like to participate in ANY sports as adults. It's an absolute blast to watch from the stands as well.
Somebody needs to invite this guy to put down his fruity umbrella drink, come down out of his snobby sky box, talk to some of the ladies who skate, and maybe take a few laps around the track with the ladies. He may find it harder to look down his nose at roller derby if that happened...then again, after writing this fifth grade book report, he might get his nose turned sideways in the process.
