Cleveland – May 2017 – Burning River Roller Derby

Most cities would be highly embarrassed to have a history of a river that caught on fire from pollution but not Cleveland. Many things are named ‘Burning River’ in the city, including the roller derby team. We caught a game against Central Ohio (aka – CORD).

Roller Derby is a great combination of athletic action, art, and humor, especially the ‘derby names’ including; Teddy RosieWelt, Killer Queen, Florence Fight’ngale and Marceline the Slampire Queen.

There were all ages (including one skater in her 60s) and skills, and great sportsman ship was shown throughout, even with the intense competition. A very entertaining evening!
