You all know, I love roller derby so of course I'm interested in other people's dangerous and strange hobbies. Especially ones where people get to wear an outfit that is tough, have a name they gave themselves and be their own super hero... literally. Yes, people out there have so much time and resources on their hands they are becoming super heros. Like the roller derby name registry, there is also a super hero registry. It's like Stan Lee's Show Make Me a Super Hero took on a life of it's own . I think it's great. I'm all for encouraging good deeds and protecting each other and the fierce costumes just add enough attention grabbing to make the good deeds newsworthy, something we could all use more of in our day. So with great interest I watched the following video's this morning:
