Can you think of anything sexier then ACDG Hockey Stops, because I can’t.
Sarah Moola is the only Muslim girl in the UK who competes in roller derby. Despite its reputation as an aggressive contact sport with women wearing raunchy costumes, Sarah adores roller derby and insists it does not clash with her religious beliefs. When she was meeting prospective husbands with her parents, Sarah was careful to choose someone who would be happy to let her pursue her love of roller derby.
I filmed for this about a month ago. I hope other muslims see it and realise that it’s possible to get involved in sport without compromising your faith.

Derby. A serious sport, played by serious Athletes… who “sometimes” act like dorks during their very serious, choreographed, introduction.

These past few months, we’ve been hard at work training our 2013 fresh meat class. It’s hard to believe the draft is less than a few weeks away! And when they do get drafted, they might go to…
Our brand-new fourth home team.
That’s right. Boston has had such an influx of new talent that we’ve had to expand to contain it all. For the 2013 season, we’re adding a fourth home team to join the Cosmonaughties, the Nutcrackers and the Wicked Pissahs on the track.
Captained by Hayley Contagious and Wanda Herchu, the fourth team is already planning to hit the ground running in the race for the Fez Cup.
HOWEVER: We need your help! The fourth team is now asking YOU to help them find a team name. Calling all punsters and wordsmiths: If we pick your suggestion, you’ll win a t-shirt of your choice and the name of your choosing printed on the back!
Send any and all creative submissions to Hayley and Wanda by clicking right here.
Have you always wanted to name a derby team? Here’s your chance!
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. (x)
Is that guy pushing over his own team member? I don’t understand what’s going on on the right half of this gif, basically.
You don’t use cannonballs? Really?
Its a blocking technique where you, well, launch a blocker into someone else. Like an offensive whip, really. Really effective and fun, its just not done too well here.
We’ve learned pushes but not what to do with them. I guess that’ll be my question at next practice.
Rooney this is your next trick. Let’s make it happen.
