From the DNN Archive:
The Southwest Florida Herald Tribune has this entertaining article today featuring the Bradentucky Bombers and some of the league’s stars, including former world figure skating champ Melanie Gue (Nikki Strict-9). The article has some better-than-average-mainstream-media description of derby and some bout action. Check it out. “Roller derby? I said, ‘My god, Melanie, you’re not a derby skater; what are you thinking? You’ll get killed!… all this money we put into her costumes, and traveling, and skates, just to have her break a leg this way.’”
