Amy, the Roller Girl

This is Amy, who goes by the name "Bad Person" #55 as a member of the Wicked Pissahs Roller Derby team. I met Amy, excuse me, "Bad Person" on the Common Saturday as she was skating around on her quad wheels and promoting an upcoming double header, or bout as they like to call it, on April 17th at Shriner's Auditorium in Wilmington.

First game starts at 5:00pm: Boston Massacre vs. Philadelphia. The second game at 7:00pm and features the Cosmonaughties vs. Nutcrackers.

Amy said they don't play too physical a game, but I think she was just being modest. After all, why do they call their games bouts? More information and pictures of the teams can be found on the Boston Derby Dames website. It's worth a visit just to read some of the Roller Deby names the women use.

Here is another shot of "Bad Person" in her Roller Girl uniform with the postcards she was handing out.

Looks so sweet close up & sooo BAD with the full view. Very fun portrait.

How can you feel seriously threatened by someone who looks that sweet. Maybe that's her secret weapon.

Roller derby is great fun to watch ... but the aggressiveness of the skaters is a bit scary, too. She looks pretty innocent in this setting, but I'll bet she holds her own at the rink!

Such a pretty girl. She must be very good on the rink.

'Roller Girl' was a great track by Dire Straits.

Years ago when living in Los Angeles, we'd often go to roller derby shows...I loved them! Haven't seen one since that I can remember...nice to know that some form of that rock' em, sock 'em sport continues.
