Beware Zombie Rinkwomen! Utah has a lively roller derby scene, with avid fans and some truly awesome, Amazon-like warrior women. Check this photo out from the City Weekly blog.
“This was actually the best game we’ve had so far. It was back-and-forth the whole bout, very competetive, lots of stress and anger on the floor due to the score being so close–it was awesome. We got a broken tailbone, broken glasses and huge rink-rash bruises. The final score was Sucker Punch Sweethearts 132, Ladies of Capone 122.”
If I had to live in Utah again, I’d become a fan of these awesome women, who have a crusher-crash-chick vibe going and a refreshingly DIY approach to team regalia and player numbering. I’m not sure if it’s the black lipstick or the glowing, zombie-like eyes, but if I saw these women skating at me, I’d run like hell. They’re totally awe-inspiring.
