The Minnesota RollerGirls are hot. They'll chew you up and spit you out, and they won't say they're sorry. See them for yourself at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium on March 3.
And save us a spot. We'll be there because, yes, these girls have a literary side. Come early to meet Melissa "Melicious" Joulwan, founding member of the Texas Rollgergirls--the league that launched the new wave of the sport--tells her best tales from track in her mouthy, tough-as-nails style. In Rollergirl: Totally True Tales from the Track, she details the fierce rivalries, stirs up the thrill of a bout, explains the rules, and profiles the women (and their Rollergirl personas) who tear up the track. There are sidebars on how to find your own Rollergirl name and pictures throughout of the sexy women who elbow and slam their way to victory.
Get in line, get a book, and get an autograph. Doors open at 6:30. See the Rollergirls website for details and directions.
