Remember Roller Derby?

Seems Roller Derby is trying to make a comeback these days. The OC Roller Girls »ocrollergirls.com had a pre-season scrimmage tonight that was a blast. Not wanting to date myself, but I remember going to the Olympic Auditorium to watch the L.A. T-Birds when I was in college. The names have gotten better with the times too... There was Panchita Villa, Scarlet Beaver, Rolla Cholla and Luz Panties just to name a few.

You two are as old as me.

( ohdan See Profile, the judges accepted your answer, however "Psyco" Ronnie Raines would have been ok as well)

Dang... I answered Ronnie Raines correctly, but The Herald Examiner has been long forgotten and I never knew Freddie. RIchmond 9-5171 still rings a bell though.

Not as old, I think, but I watched a lot with my grandpap . And who doesn't know Freddie Blassie? Communists, most likely...

My grandpap is 94 if that makes you feel any better.

A craptacular newspaper; the craptacularity was all the more noticeable due to the quality of the LA Times at the time. LAT used to be a really great paper.

I approve of a time when one could take their kids out for 3 hours of live entertainment for 75¢.

@rr.com

Can somebody explain the T-Birds color change? They changed from blue/red/white to green/yellow/white. Anybody remember the real reason and/or the storyline for the change? I think they lost a stipulation (wait was Russo booking this?) somewhere, but I do not remember the exact circumstance around the change.

Minimum wage from 1968 -1973 was $1.60/hr. Figure $2/hr if you work at Disnyland. So with a little overtime, $5,000/yr. ($420/Mo)

1970 - Upland California
New Ranch Home; 2 bedroom
1 1/2 acre lots suitable horses
$27,000

10% down. = $177/Mo.
So after food/gas/utilities... On could own a home AND take the kids out on Friday night!

I think that'll qualify you for a "Hoarders" TV episode!
