BEST LOCAL ATHLETE
Charlotte Roller Girls
If you don’t want to be them, you at least have to see them. Since its resurgence in 2001, roller derby has rocketed in popularity ... especially in Charlotte. These bad-ass women on wheels have one of the largest roller derby fan followings in the nation. Emmylou Harrass, Court’her Pound’her, Drew FearMEmore (porn stars can’t beat these names) and the rest of the Charlotte skaters aren’t out there squealing and pulling hair — the fast-paced derby action requires endurance and serious athletic ability. And at $4-$10 per ticket, it’s also your best value for a spectator sport. See what these hard-hitting bouts are all about at The Grady Cole Center, 310 N. Kings Drive.
