A while back, Vette City Roller Derby took a look at applying skills learned on the flat track to everyday life. As one might expect, the results were borderline psychotic.
For example, any roller girl worth her skates is adept at “closing a hole” to impede a jammer’s progress, but pulling the same stunt away from the track could be construed as assault with intent to do great bodily harm.

When applied in the right context (i.e. a flat track derby rink), cutting, whipping, juking and squatting make all the sense in the world and are a sight to behold. If you ever find yourself in Bowling Green, Kentucky, be sure to try and catch a Vette City bout.
Better yet, if you reside in the Bowling Green area, try out for the team and get in on the action yourself…
