I was enjoying some idle thought the other day, as I do, and I was thinking of how many skaters might be at “Roller Derby Hall of Fame” level.
Let’s make a fun fake one.
Who would be in your modern roller derby hall of fame? Let’s set some parameters:
- Must be currently retired for at least
two yearsone year (Ed: it’s more fun this way) (the possibility of un-retiring is fine; four people in the other hall did that)
- Flat or banked doesn’t matter
- Must not be a verified terrible person (if they murdered someone, must have had a good reason, etc.)
- Niceness/off-track popularity/winning the after party shouldn’t necessarily factor in, but Contributions to The Sport can
Make your nominees below. Who are they, who did they skate for, and why were they so great?
I have an idea for at least one….
