If you are of a certain age and a certain disposition, you remember Roller Derby. And if you remember it, odds are you recall it fondly.

What wasn’t to like? Two teams, divided into men’s and women’s squads. Ten skaters at a time slamming and banging one another as they circled a banked track. Blocks, jams, sucker punches, cheap shots and penalty boxes. A kick to the stomach. A chair banged over an unsuspecting head.

If that resonates with you, then you won’t be surprised that Roller Derby and the American Red Cross are teaming up for the fourth consecutive summer in a series of blood drives. Roller Derby, blood. If you’re of a certain age, the pairing makes all the sense in the world.
