Cincinnati Rollergirls kick off their 2012 season on Saturday, March 10 at the Cincinnati Gardens against Arch Rival.
Yes, Cincinnati’s has a roller derby team. We have had a roller derby team for years and if you didn’t know that, make 2012 the year you come out and support this team. There are only five games this season. FIVE so pick your date, grab your friends, pack the tailgating supplies, a couple noisemakers and join the fun.

If you don’t know a lick about roller derby, watch this Basics of Flat Track Derby video and you’ll be good.
Last year, I was a Nastee fan but she is not on the roster so my fan-dom reverts back to Wheezy and Buckhead Betty.
In an interview, they mention how they’re not just skaters, they’re everything from coaches, PR reps, marketers, ticket sellers, looking for sponsorship and more. All that in addition to their real lives and real jobs so it is really cool they’ve been nominated as best amateur sport in Cincinnati.
