Roller Derby

* Roller Derby.

Not sure where Jeff Eats is going with this one…


I don’t know about you guys, but back in Brooklyn in the late 50’s-early-60’s there were loads of Saturday and Sunday afternoons (around 3pm) when tv stations WPIX, WNEW and WOR broadcast Men’s & Women’s Roller Derby…To be perfectly honest with you, Jeff Eats never consciously went “looking” for those Roller Derby broadcasts- but for some odd reason they always popped up on the screen. Just for the record, I was never a fan of the “sport”- but every so often the skaters’ slamming and belting each other caught my attention.


Nothing for nothing, until this afternoon -GOD only knows when the last time that I thought about Roller Derby was…the latest catalyst-my friend Joey C. mentioned that there were Roller Derby teams/leagues all over Florida-and that a site had loads of games/tickets listed.


If you like, love, want to get reacquainted, want to reconnect, want to join a team, want to get tickets, want to learn more about Roller Derby in Florida -you now know where to get info.

    I remember those broadcasts. The sport never caught on. Very blue collarish. The wrestling shows out of Atlanta were the best.
