Texas Rollergirls media coverage

ABC Nightline visited Austin and did a story on us, and the women behind the sport. Check out the teaser spot on ABC Good Morning America that aired this morning, then watch the full segment tonight on Nightline!

Here is the link to the full story from ABC Nightline!

After you’ve watched that awesome piece, head on over to Hilah Cooking where you can see our girls skate around with Hilah and then take shots of whiskey! Yes, seriously.

With the help of Hilah, we’ve created our own roller derby shot – the Pickelback, with a twist! It’s a shot of whiskey followed by a chaser of pickle juice with Tabasco in it, and we’ve named it the PickleSmack!┬áRead the blog post and watch the video, then try it yourself at the Convention Center SATURDAY when you watch the championship bouts!

On Wednesday, Hunter Ellis from WeAreAustin.com hung out with some of us at Pan Am Park and put together an awesome segment on roller derby. He learned the rules, the positions, even the track layout! He’s super psyched for the Texecutioner game on Saturday, and we hope you’re just as excited! Check out our two clips on the Austin Live website!

Former Survivor contestant and winner, Parvati Shallow, is on a new CBS reality show, Around The World For Free. Last night, Parvati joined us at practice and learned the basics of roller derby – and even jammed against the famous Bloody Mary! Watch the video on CBS.com! Thanks for stopping by, Parvicious!


This week you can check us out on various places as well. We’re really psyched for our fundraiser tonight at Fado Irish Pub and Restaurant. We’re going to have some of our very own skaters behind the bar pouring pints and mixing drinks, and we’ll of course have some awesome giveaways, including merchandise prizes and tickets! The fun starts at 7pm!

Check out the clip on We Are Austin with Hotrod Honey skater Vicious Van GoGo and Fado!

Be sure to try our signature PickleSmack shot tonight at Fado, and tomorrow at our bout at the Austin Convention Center! Check out Hell Mary skater Sinnerfold featured on the front page of Austin360!

We’ve also great articles on the Examiner and Austin Chronicle about our championship bouts tomorrow night.
