Back in 1983 I remember seeing John Parker on the Tbirds.John was a great red shirt skater but I loved seeing him and Danny Reilly out their defending what did all of you think of at.
One of my favorite episodes of That 70s Show was when Eric was skating. When I was in Billings, Montana we had a guy who dressed like this to the T. He was a really great skater too.

I grew up in the 60s watching Roller Derby and Roller Games, especially with my Grandma. She just loved watching the banked track skaters and she loved pro wrestling. Such good memories.

What I have now come to appreciate as I approach my 62 years of being on the planet was the nice mix of minorities. I grew up in a mostly white community but always appreciated all races. My favorite skater and crush in the 70s was the lovely Patsy Delgado. I really value what the Latino and Black community brought to the games.
In the 1970s I went to a costume party. I made a T-Birds outfit out of what I had at home. I used to skate with an amateur club and had skates. I still have them. Miss those days
When I was a kid, at about 8-10 years old (late 60's, early 70's), I wanted an L.A. T- Bird jersey so bad but there was no where you could buy them....no dept. stores, no sporting good stores....so, fast forward 45 years....I decided to make my own!!!

National Skating Derby, Inc. was founded in 1960 by former Roller Derby skater Herb Roberts along with its flagship team, the Los Angeles Thunderbirds (often referred to as The L.A.

T-Birds). NSD was acquired by Bill Griffiths and Jerry Hill in late 1961, with the first games being skated in 1961.The Thunderbirds quickly became one of the most popular and well known teams in the history of banked track skating (Roller Derby). Within just a few years, the T-Birds popularity rivaled that of the other major sports teams in Los Angeles; the Dodgers, Rams and Lakers. The red, whit
