I’m not sure yet, but I think they play coed teams and girls teams as well as guy’s teams. Either way, I figure that I get to hang out with a bunch of derby people, particularly derby chicks, who all seemed pretty cool in the time I spent with them. Aside from that, seems like a fun/interesting way to stay active and work on balance, footwork, fluid motion and agility stuff aside from just doing a shit ton of running, which I always feel awkward doing. I tend to feel like really burly and slow which I can’t stand, I could see it possibly helping with that.
I’m not necessarily worried about people thinking I’m gay, if they can’t figure out I’m not then they’re dumb or haven’t spent enough time with me, but I AM looking for objective opinions on how it seems, particularly to you guys, but also the girls. So thank you guys, and keep goin.[/quote]
In Roller Derby, is the winning team pre-determined like pro wrestling or is it real competition? The reason I ask is because the costumes are like pro wrestling costumes, the deliberately sexy pro wrestling costumes that is, which makes me not take it seriously as a competition. I wonder if this is the reason why men think it is fruity to do it.[/quote]
the flat track skating is real competition. the old banked track was like pro wrestling. I’ve heard the new banked track is real comp but I’m not sure. they have men’s teams in the banked track derby. the local team http://www.myspace.com/lowcountryhighrollers
GO OUT AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL TEAM!!!
If the outfits weren’t sexy, would the girls want to participate and would the men want to watch?
