No, those aren't the modern skaters pictured above, but that Life Magazine snap from the '30s was so terrific I couldn't resist posting it. The Inamorato and I have been attempting to enjoy a night of vicious and exciting roller derby, as it is some by the local Gotham Girls Roller Derby. Hopefully, tonight you will be able to see Mr. S.D. and myself sitting in the stands and munching popcorn as we watch Manhattan Mayhem battle the Queens of Pain.
Tonight. 8:30. Hunter College Sportsplex. Buy tix here.
