My son and I went and watched some Roller Deby (bouts they are called) back in August. It was differant and fun and I highly recommend it for a change of pace event. Where we went they had dogs, burgers and beers for sale but I doubt that will be the case at Barber Park. Not daddies Roller Derby but still some theater. Fun.

We may go.

I hope to be there. Our friend Cara is on the home team.

When we were in Sicily in May I saw a report about roller derby in NC -- local piece by Bob Buckley, picked up by Sky and pushed out over the Murdoch satellite feed. That was slightly surreal.

Ed, "local piece by Bob Buckley, picked up by Sky and pushed out over the Murdoch satellite feed. That was slightly surreal.

Kinda makes one wonder what else gets shown in other parts of the world. And how that reflects on us.

Having spent endless nights in hotel rooms around the world, I have to agree that Italian TV is among the most surreal. On a jetlagged Sunday night in Rome, I quickly tired of the popular La Domenica Sportiva and it's endless arguements over referee's calls and non-calls. I turned off the volume, and began to flip between channels offering the same dubbed retreads from American TV you see around the world. I stopped for a minute on a channel showing a mountain panorama that looked amazingly like the Northwest mountains of North Carolina. This was my introduction to the BBC docmentary Michael Palin & the Ladies Who Loved Matisse. I had traveled several thousand miles that day to see on TV the same view I've seen so often from the steps of the Cone house on the Parkway.
