Roller Derby Queen

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now. A couple of weekends ago, I took Amy to the Arizona Roller Derby semi-finals. It wasn’t quite what I expected. To start with, it was in
a gym, which is not your normal sporting event venue. However, this gym had a roller hockey rink of pretty decent size, so it worked pretty
well. The only thing that didn’t work that well was the airconditioning, which was probably because even in their worst nightmare the building engineers for this gym never expected there to be 200-300 people in the roller hockey rink at the height of the Arizona summer. But although hot, it was mostly bearable. Since I had somewhat underestimated the likely appeal of Arizona Roller Derby, Amy and I didn’t get a seat right away. In fact, the parking lot of this gym was PACKED. We had to park a fair ways away too… so, let that be a lesson to all of you who want to see the roller derby… come EARLY. We were only 1/2 hour early and we were too late to get seats.

So, we sat on the floor and watched the Surly Girlies play the Bad News Beaters. It was relatively interesting to watch, although I was disappointed to find out that according to the rules, elbows and such are not allowed. Not only that, but fighting is against the rules! :) I was somewhat molified by the fact there were 2 fights, but the lack of elbows was rather a let down. You may remember Sis Boom Barbie from the Punk Rock Beach Party update. She is a member of the Surly Girlies. So is Bootleg Bonnie.
Unfortunately for them though, they lost to the Bad News Beaters, who
go on to take on the Bruisers on August 12. Not sure if I am interested
enough to the final. With all this record breaking heat, I think that
gym will be an oven.

Most hilarious part of the derby:

“I Beat Anorexia” guy. I laughed for 5 minutes after I saw this shirt on this guy.

Honorable Mention:

Bottom Spanking Time… yes… it is what it sounds like.
