Roller Derby Love: A Family Affair

Posted By on Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 3:37 PM

Make some room, ladies — the boys are here to stay.

They've got their first bout behind them, and now the Mountain Mad Men are starting a full year of roller derby competition. I spoke with Mad Men Bangers 'N' Smash and Seven about the sport, and what it means to be a part of the derby family.

Apparently, beneath the nicknames and the bravado, derby is about reliving those grade-school skate nights while risking bodily harm in the name of fun, family and sport. Enjoy the show, and get in on some of this "Derby Love."

Tickets for this weekend's event at Big House Sports are available at Brown Paper Tickets for $5 before the bout, and $12 at the door.

Thank you to the Mountain Mad Men and Noah Bryant Photography for supporting us in this project.
