Derby City Rollergirls @ Champs Rollerdrome

Saturday, Feb. 9

Champs Rollerdrome
9851 Lagrange Road
$11; 8 p.m.

I once thought about trying out to be a roller girl. I had fond memories of Skateworld as a child, and I’ve always wanted to trip people and knock them against walls. And then someone said of the sport: “It’s not if you get hurt, it’s when.” So I threw myself back into happy hours and morning mimosas. And being a spectator. The Derby City Rollergirls have their first game of the season Saturday against the Glass City Rollers from Toledo, Ohio. If you’ve never been, it’s highly entertaining to watch and cringe as the ladies fly around the track and elbow the competition out of the way. The match starts at 8 p.m., doors open at 7. —Sara Havens
