Denver is home to some awesome roller derby teams. In fact, we've got one of the best roller derby teams in the world right here: The Rocky Mountain Rollergirls, 2010 national champions of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, roller derby's international governing body. The team is skating toward defending that title again this year, but on the way they'll be settling a local score this Saturday by pitting their B-squad, the Contenders, against Fort Collins' Choice City Rebels All-Stars, that team's A-squad. It'll be an intense, well matched bout, and while two tickets to it would normally run you a cool $50, here's your chance to get them for free.
Simply take to the comments section below and tell us your favorite story that involves roller skating -- these can be stories of roller derby, roller disco, middle-school skating parties or whatever you can come up with, and stories that involve roller blading are also acceptable. Make them your own personal stories, however; everybody knows the one where you have to race a bully named Wheels down a Rocky Mountain pass to save a daycare center from destruction was an episode of Mork & Mindy.
The submission deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, and make sure to leave a valid email address with your comment so we can get a hold of you if you won; we promise we will never spam you or give your email address to anyone or, in all likelihood, ever look at it again for any reason. The bout is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and to the winner go the spoils: We'll award both of our shiny tickets to the best story.
