There's a Roller Derby league in Houston. A friend of a friend is on one of the teams, she swears it's a shoot. Sure.

I think so. I recall the TBirds on Roller Games along with Wally George hosting the halftime show with a musical act. First time. I everI heard Bust A Move by Young MC.
If I remember correctly, I think that ESPN aired roller derby weekly either before or after AWA wrestling. This series featured a main storyline where Ms. Georgia Haas somehow got the contract of Randi Whitman from the LA T-Birds and forced her to skate for her team against her will. By the end of the season, somehow Whitman was reunited with her T-Birds team and the team won the championship.

This is exactly what I remember.  It came on after the AWA, so I watched it and got hooked.  
Another name that rings a bell was Bozo Congelton.  I'm not sure on that last name but he had long hair on the sides and was bald on top like Bozo the clown.  He was a heel and would get pissed when they called him Bozo.
I think there was a quick footed T-Bird with the last name Washington.

May I offer you some salt and vinegar chips?
