Derby helps single mom rebound

@fjayhawk: modern roller derby is not fixed. In the past, derby was more theater than sport, and was fixed as you say. However the current incarnation is a true sport and I can assure you that it is not fixed or staged in any way. As a roller derby official, I can say absolutely that the results of a roller derby bout are not pre-determined and the skaters are truly competitive athletes. Check out WFTDA.com for more information on women's flat track derby.
