The newest members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls eschew soft summer breezes for hard hits and pileups as they clash elbow pads with their newfound rivals. During each bout, the team's lady combatants shove aside their normal personas—from soap-makers to systems analysts—to strap on roller skates and unleash their fierce alter egos with names such as Florence Nite-n-Hell and Wicked Caroline. The squad’s mixture of passion and talent was also the focal point of a 2009 documentary entitled Black-n-Bluegrass, in which the girls discuss the aspects of the sport and cast aside common misconceptions, such as that the skaters’ helmets actually house their oversized brains.
The Bank of Kentucky Center's arena-style seating ensures unfettered views of the action, especially from the “suicide seating” down on the floor, available only for spectators aged 18 and older. During halftime or timeouts, fans can haul in a variety of souvenirs, such as stickers and buttons ($1), T-shirts ($10+), and koozies ($5) in which to keep cans from making noise while dragged behind a car.
Though the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
