Roller Derby fandom —
Finally! Another cartoonist who gets the "Roller Derby Thing!"

I like Roller Derby because it's NOT corporate, it's NOT "professional," it's barely "organized." All the things I hate about "pro" sports. The participants are adults who do it because they dig it. The audience is mostly family and friends of the athletes, not screaming crowds of thousands. The scoring, while real, doesn't really matter. Nobody's "career" is on the line. And everybody has FUN!

So go see your local Roller Derby, dammit!
