Wasn't there a movie with James Caan or Steve Mcqueen that was about roller derby ?
I remember (sort of) seeing it when I was a little kid .

Nauti Girl: See if you can find a copy of the old Raquel Welch Movie.
In the "Good Old"days it was a fun sport but now its W.W.F. on roller skates.
Two Teams, Each Team having both
men and women, Men raced men and women raced women.
Raced on a steep banked track on
Roller Skates, Not a easy sport to
master.

Now I know who my true friends are!!! Mike Jenkins...you are the man...Spec Saunders..didn't he referee the matches????
I still have Ralphie Valadaras' autograph from 1968..got to meet him and shake his hand...man, could that guy skate!!!!!

Shane....you are right...we are older than dirt!!!

Nauti girl...shame on you...not knowing what the roller derby is....you need to go rent that Raquel Welch movie!!! Not the movie with James Caan...that was roller ball...very little similarity.

Airpacker...Skinny Minnie Miller!!!!! Now, you really pulled that one out of the hat....she was a good skater, but like her nickname, she was skinny!!!!

Come on Mike J...what was the name of the Raquel Welch movie??? I cannot recall... The Bomber Queen, The Bay Bombers...I will find out....

Ahhhh...the good old days!!! You guys kill me!!! Hope everyone has a great Turkey Day!!!!

Happy belated Bday Mike!!

Guys - I was just kidding, I know what roller derby is. I think they used to have it on USA or FX not too long ago. Thanks for taking the time to explain anyways. You guys are great!!

G-Man: NO Specs was a Jammer and
the best in his time,
With him "Speed" skating and Red
Smart blocking the "T"Birds were the
#1 Team for years.
Last I heard Ralphie lives close to
you in OC.

Mike....Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but little Ralphie passed away about 3-5 years ago

There was a small article in the paper concerning his death....natural causes...If I recall correctly, he was about 54 years of age.

Sorry about that...
