Roller Derby Night

Our friend Kearney invited us to a Roller Derby match this past Saturday evening, and because neither of us have ever done anything like it, decided to give it a shot.

We’re so glad we went, it was such a refreshing departure from our normal outings and we were able to scream outlandishly for girls who were beating the crap out of eachother while on roller skates.

Tickets were available online which was convenient and we were able to get front row seats. Besides the estrogen that was pumping through the place, we saw our fair share of pin up tattoos, fish net stockings, gauged ears, and purple hair!

The rules of Roller Derby are easy to understand and after the first few rounds of ass kicking we got into things and cheered on our favorites. Those included Betty Bone Crusher, Olivia Shootin’ John, Rice Rocket, Bloody Mary, and Viagra Falls!

The visiting team was from Portland, and while they were good…our home team, The Texecutioners, beat them by a land slide! Come next season we’ll definitely be game for some more Roller Derby action!
