It's not often that you find a sport that both Nancy Regan and Larry
Flynt would enjoy. Roller derby has broken out of its entertainment mold
and into the legitimate sports world, complete with competitive rules,
penalties, piercings and fishnets. This past Saturday, we went to see South Florida's Gold Coast Derby Grrls take on the Dallas Derby
Devils. Here is a quick rundown to help you better understand the video:
- Jammer: Scores the points by lapping all the other team's players. There's one jammer per team.
- Blocker: Four per team. Their only goal is to (legally) do what they can to keep the other team's jammer from getting by.
- Pivot: This is a blocker who can take over the jammer's position if the official jammer opts to change latter.
