Demon Of The Derby

One of the original badassed broads died on Tuesday. Ann Cavello, if you're not old enough to remember rollerderby (or missed the weekend reruns in the '70s) on TV, was not called the "Meanest Mama On Skates" and, of course, the "Roller Derby Queen" for nothin'. She busted heads, she won by the skin of her teeth, and she didn't apologize for SHIT, let alone for being herself.

Wheel screech to my long-lost twin, Stinkeye, she of the melodious pew-thrashing, for the tip.
