Thematic Photographic 81: "Feet" v.5.0 - Skate Away

"Carolina Rollergirls"
Raleigh, NC - June 2009 (Click to embiggen)

These feet beong to one of the Carolina Rollergirls of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. Yeah, I know what you're thinking... "Roller Derby? Seriously??" Yeah, seriously. If all you've ever seen is the WWE-On-Wheels version from 60's- and 70's-era television, you haven't seen the real deal. This is a legitimate sport played by legitimate competitiors and while the names they travel under might harken to those circus sideshow television bouts, that's where the similarity ends. If you get a chance, you really should check it out.

Great catch! Now, I wonder, is it still a rough sport? Ouch!
