Thesaurus for derby

Synonyms, antonyms, and related words for derby

A game played on either a flat track or banked track. Members of both teams wear quad skates and circle the track in packs. The pack for each team consists of a pivot and three blockers. There is also a jammer for each team on the track who tries to score points by passing opposing blockers.

The pivots job is to keep control of the pack speed. The blockers job is to keep the opposing jammer from getting through the pack and to assist their own jammer through.

{Roller derby] or derby is played in two minute increments called jams. Jams continue for a twenty minute period. There are three periods in a bout.

Roller derby is a full contact sport, where players are encouraged to knock down their opponents by hitting them (also called blocking). Each league maintains their own rules of blocking.

The history of roller derby spans from the 1930's, to the present. In it's current incarnation, it is typically an all-female sport, and the vast majority of roller derby leagues play on a flat track. Play between flat track leagues is governed by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, or WFTDA who impose rules of the sport and the league for membership. There are currently (as of October 2006) over 500 flat and banked track leagues around the world, most of which are DIY all-female leagues who govern themselves. Each league can impose it's own standards and rules for inner league play.

Roller derby can also be used as an adjective to describe a tough girl, or an activity that is aggressive and rough.

Women who play roller derby are often called derby girls or rollergirls.
Roller derby is one of the few women's sports that allow women to be aggressive and tough.

A place where the word holler rightfully exists; a place of wonder; a place where children can dig their fingers in the dirt, use their imagination, and dream; a place where parents want more for their children and do everything possible for their wishes to come true; a place where most people in the united states like to underestimate and pretend that the only thing that exists there is 'inbreds'; a place that a teenage girl tries her whole life to leave and when she settles elsewhere, she can't wait to see the mountains again;a place that also uses the word hick, but in a slightly different way everyone else does; a slightly poor place; a place where,yes, horse racing exists and people are actually in touch with nature; home cooked meals are to die for!; a great place to think or write a book; AND its fun to use words without a 'g' in the end!

*Your "International" airport has only one passenger flight that actually leaves the 48 contiguous U.S. states.

*The in-state sports rivalry is paid more attention to than the national championship.

*You live in an area that occasionally gets considerable snowfalls, floods, and tornadoes... but has no real capacity to deal with any of the above.

*You pronounce the name of your city different than anyone else you've heard.

*You think the rest of the people in Kentucky sound like hicks.

*You ask your doctor for an allergy cure and he tells you to move.

*You've shovelled 10+ inches of snow and worn shorts in the same week.

*You say let them have their Starbucks; you've got Highland Coffee.

*Your last ten vacations were in Panama City or Destin.

*You make an emergency run to Kroger for bread and milk at the first sighting of a snowflake.

*You think all the REAL hicks live in New Albany.

*You think the only thing Southern Indiana is good for is buying pumpkins.

When a girl wants to pleasure you by licking, sucking your penis. Often times, teens dont know how to do this, so they practice a lot. They often times forget to be moving her hand up and down on the part of the penis her mouth cant reach, which will help the ejactulation process. Some girls enjoy, some dont, luckily, my girl doesnt mind it at all.

Advice to all guys: while getting head, make sure to stay very "focused" and into it, and think about how fucking awesome it is while its happening, and just how good it feels, it will make it even better, and during the orgasm, enjoy! It is the best, but, you might not feel the best right after, like, you will feel a little "unhorny", but thats normal. Make sure to love your girl, because she definately cares enough to do this to you. My advice: go down on her too, if she wants it.
Holy shit man, I got head last night, and I am reliving it over and over.

While largely unknown to the world, Derby County are perhaps the most successful comedy/magic combination act of all time. Formed in 1883, the original cast of 10 sheep and a village idiot proved a huge hit with easily pleased, dimwitted locals.

Fuelled by their early success, by 1884 the group looked to take their act to a wider audience. For an unfathamoble and as yet unexplained reason, it was decided the best way to do this would be to masquerade as a football team.

This left County with a problem, as fielding a team with 42 legs went against League regulations. Attempts to get around this by removing the rear legs of each sheep proved a rash and unpopular solution, as not only could the sheep not play football, it also made intercourse far more difficult for the good citizens of Derby.

Axed from the group and traumatised by their experiences, yet unwilling to go quietly, the sheep went on to form the Derby County Supporters Club. Their influence can still be seen today in the delusional, stubborn and sexually maladjusted Derby fans.

Replaced with nine mental institution outpatients and a cauliflower, County became masters of irony. Famous gags include being the holders of the 'worst Premiership season ever' title while simultaneously performing their shows at a venue known as 'Pride Park' and their ability to charge inbred Derby residents exorbitant prices for one dire performance after another.
