Talk Derby to Me: Maidens 19, Babes 187

by Doug MacRostie

The enthusiastic explosion of Women’s Roller Derby is the best thing to happen in Northern Minnesota since Bob Dylan’s Hibbing disassociation fed a generation’s musical hunger for free expression. I love the fast action, energetic atmosphere of LOCAL teams playing their hearts out – something that’s lost even at the college level.

Introductions

Bemidji’s Babe City Rollers (aka Babes) were the first team to get started in this region and helped inspire the founding of the Grand Rapid’s area Iron Range Maidens (aka Maidens), and it has been a long time coming to see these two teams finally go at it!
