    I love roller derby because it was reincarnated here in Austin and has now inspired female athletes across the country to join together.

    Roller Derby Is just too cool…..but it is not your mother’s (or grandmother’s) roller derby! There are rules and the play is not scripted. These ladies are real athletes! The bouts are exciting! And family friendly…..that’s why I am entering this contest…..I’d like to be able to take my son’s fiance and her kids to the next bout. I have my season pass but I am retired and always short of cash. The oldest girl aspires to be a derby brat! My daughter is doing rec league this year and LOVES it. Derby has kept her going during a pretty rough point in her life. Those are the reasons I LOVE ROLLER DERBY!

    It’s a fist-pumpin’, four-wheelin’, flyin’-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, flamin’ female fiesta!!! …and Lone Star beer.

    There is no reason to luv roller derby, but i have a story…i was diagnosed with parkinsons and i started to drive to austin for the games. I started to go with a cane then a walker but that didnt stop me from going. Roller derby makes me feel alive. I had lost hope because I am only 40 years old yet I have roller derby to thank.. I started to go to the roller derby here in san antonio and they know who I am. I actually went to the after party with a walker. Now I am without a cane or walker and I bought season passes to the ACRG games. THANK YOU ROLLER DERBY LADIES……

    I love roller derby because it a wonderful sport that inpowers women! It proves that you can be a Mom or a single woman and have control of your life. I would be honored if when my little girl grows up she goes out for roller derby! It gives you and out for letting off steam too! To me it a sport that women can thrieve in and it gives so many accomplishments. Some sports are not easy to do that and this one is pretty tough! I love the girls how they can kick ass and take names then go home and cook dinner,clean the house and take care of thier family if they have one! Makes me yell “you go girl.”!!!!

    Women (and girls) need more contact sports! That what I tell friends and parents when they act surprised that we’ve gotten Chloe into roller derby, and it’s been HUGE for her. She’s found her niche for sure.

    I love roller derby for it’s non-stop action!! Mom’s, grandma’s, single lady’s…..it’s a sport for every woman. I am originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan where they filmed parts of Whip It a few years back. Seeing that movie being filmed was what got me interested in the sport. I just moved to Fort Hood with my husband a year ago and couldn’t believe they had a league just an hour away!! It would be unbelievable to see a Roller Derby match live!! Women Kick Ass!!
