Welcome once again to the Frisky Power Rankings, where I rank women’s flat track roller derby according to my whims/in-depth knowledge. Once again, we’re just doing top 12, as there haven’t been many (if any) (should I look) (nah, too lazy) sanctioned games. (Okay, I felt bad and looked it up. There was the European […]

I’m over bingo, everyone. I tried to make jokes. It wasn’t working. So! Send me your pictures of you watching derby! It’s like Cats of WFTDA, but much more inclusive. Send me a picture of your pizza in front of the laptop. Or your watch party. Or your live view. Or your selfies with Kanye […]

OMG, WFTDA finally announced the 2014 tournament dates and locations! Get excited!   Not that you asked, but here are my first impressions: Hey, a tournament in Canada! That’s fun. Next year, maybe another continent? It’s about time. Both D2 tournaments are in the Great North up there. I’d be a little bummed if I’m a […]

Plenty of leagues have DJs come in to play at bouts. Not many of those DJs are dedicated enough to volunteer for the league in other ways, or to create a roller derby soundtrack for run-of-the mill scrimmage practice.
