Fun at the roller derby
I also didn't know they had craft vendors, but they do. Not a lot, but I think it's a recent development since they've been working on the warehouse where the roller derby is held.
Now I watched roller derby as a kid (it came on right before wrestling), but I never understood the rules.
Philly's roller derby also has something I didn't know existed - mixed teams. There are the standard teams made up of all women, but there were also mixed male/female teams, which was fun to watch. I think the women kicked more butt than the guys, actually.
My favorite part is the names -- Swiss Mischief, Misfortune Cookie, Beater Griffin . . . I think my favorite was the guy who called himself "General Tso Fine." I give extra points for clever, what can I say?
