Boston Derby Dames Get Rollin'

BOSTON — Given the arena, it’s fitting that Roller Derby has come around again. Locally, the Boston Derby Dames have revived the sport, with stars like “Shellby Shattered” and “Claire D. Way.”
 
They gnash and thrash their way through the roller derby rink. The Boston Derby Dames is a regional derby league whose 2012 season just got rolling.
 
Populated with 65 skaters among five teams, including the Cosmonaughties, the Nutcrackers and the Wicked Pissahs, the teams play at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington.

The Derby Dames’ bouts routinely sell out to 1300-person capacity crowds. Their all-star team, the Boston Massacre, competes nationally. It’s a sport enjoying resurgence over the last decade. Not since the roller reign from the 1940s to the 70s has it been so popular.
 
Three years ago, Drew Barrymore made her directorial debut with Whip It, an affectionate film about the bruising roller realm.
 
"If I were to take up roller derby what would be your first piece of advice? Um, wear your wrist guards, wear your pads. Wear a tailbone pad. I swear I don’t know how those girls do it without tailbone pads. I swear it sounds like smacking into concrete at full force is the scariest thing ever, but somehow you just, the first few times you roll off and get up and you’re like I’m okay, just this light bulb goes off and you’re like maybe I can do this,” Barrymore said.
 
As the Dames do, once a month, now through October.
