The all-girl roller-derby team of Hagerstown, Maryland is giving rave reviews of "Whip It," Drew Barrymore's directorial debut about the rough-and-tumble sport of roller derby.
Decked out in rainbow tights and manic-panic pink hair, Robyn Wiegand, nicknamed Switchbladey, is handing out flyers about Hagerstown roller derby. The team hopes the film will draw more fans to the Hagerstown bouts, which have been going on for more than two years now.
Inside the theater, between throwing popcorn, laughing and cheering, "we're gonna go down there...no, no necking!" The ladies aren't sure they won hearts and minds, but just as they do on the rink, they had an awesome time.
