144. DC Roller Derby

Shit. Just. Got. Real!

Listen, basketball doesn’t seem to be coming back anytime soon. (I’m looking at you Stern).  So why not set aside some time to catch the most vicious ladies you’ll ever see knock each other over as they speed around a track at the DC armory.

While wearing fishnets!

On skates!

Seems like a fair trade to me!

Even if you’re not a sports fan (does it even qualify as a sport?), the DC roller Derby can be the most randomly fun and slightly weird time you’ll have anytime soon!

The 78 women who make up the DC Roller Derby league are teachers, nurses,  librarians and work-at-home moms.  But when they lace up their skates and throw on their hair-crushing helmets, they transform into gladiators.

I think you’ll enjoy the funny announcers, crazy half-time show, and being a part of what has quickly become a DC institution in its own right.

“With Liberty and Justice to Brawl!”
