Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!
This past Saturday, I attended my first ever ROLLER DERBY! *happy dance* It was pretty freaking awesome…I am not going to lie!
I met the Little City Roller Girls at May’s First Friday event while working the Happy Snaps booth for the Johnson City Press. One of the roller girls invited me to attend their Throwdown at the Fairgrounds, and I immediately had flashbacks of watching Whip It! with one of my best friends in high school as I excitedly agreed to attend. Gah–that movie is awesome *wink*
I am a roller derby newbie. Aside from what little knowledge I picked up from Whip It + a brief Googling, I had no idea what to expect. I felt a little bit like Ellen Page’s character, Bliss Cavendar, as she watched the Hurl Scouts vs the Holy Rollers for the first time. Excited awe *wink* Hm…I wonder how my mom and friends would feel if I decided to take up roller derby as a new hobby… *wink*
Now, y’all enjoy some fun action shots from the first bout at Throwdown at the Fairgrounds! Unfortunately, I was unable attend the second bout due to other events, but I am sure it was even more awesome than the first! Be sure to keep up with the Little City Roller Girls on Facebook here for upcoming events!
