179-53 victory impresses Reese the Beast
By Sunny Montgomery
This past Saturday I attended the Rollergirls of Central Kentucky (ROCK) home bout against the Greenbrier Roller Vixens (GRV) from West Virginia with my best friend, Teresa, who was a roller derby virgin. I love introducing my friends to the sport. Being able to answer their questions makes me feel important.
We chose front-row seats so close to the track they were practically in suicide-seating, the area around the track where, due to the very real possibility a skater could skid out of control and into the crowd, fans are permitted to sit so long as they are over the age of eighteen. As announcer Bill Widener began introductions, I surveyed ROCK’s competition. Based on stature alone, it was going to be a fair fight.
