Alter egos on a roll
Meet some of the members of the Long Island Roller Rebels, a flat-track roller derby league of more than 30 women with alter-ego personas like Attackacardic, Lucille Wrecking Ball, Account DeeRacula, Wushu Sugar and Femme&M. Their derby names are often a take on what they do for a living, such as a medical biller, programmer, an accountant, a health care worker and a receptionist. One team member is a phlebotomist — a blood collector — for the American Red Cross. Which, all things considered, probably is more than a little ironic.
