Roller Derby

I first heard about roller derby when I was at a concert a few years ago.  Some of the Salt City Derby Girls were there trying to recruit members, and invited me to come try out.  I didn't, because Salt Lake is a bit too far to drive on a regular basis, but it sounded like fun.  A little while later I heard that Ogden had a league called the Junction City Roller Dolls.  It still sounded interesting, but I never got around to going to a game until this last weekend. 

I have to admit that it wasn't quite as exciting as I thought it would be.  After hearing about it and watching the movie Whip It, I thought it would be a bit more aggressive.  It was also a little hard to follow at times, but we still had fun. 

At this point I don't think I could actually compete on a team because of my bad knees, but it did kind of make me want to get some skates for fun and exercise.  Plus then I could still dress up in adorable outfits like theirs and get away with it.

BreAnn Gurr from FATCO is on the SL Derby girls team. I told her I'd come and watch, but so far I've had scheduling conflicts. Looks exciting.
