Jet City Roller Girls

Saturday I went to my first ever Roller Derby. I was super excited to go, and there was a battle happening not too far from my house.  

PB, myself, Moxie, CHB and Bushwacker all met up there. We were newbies to the Jet City Roller Girls.

The first thing I notice upon arrival are the bright outfits. And the tights/socks/bloomers of every color. These girls are really adding some flair to their outfits......

I caught a glimpse of this guy as I was checking in at will call. I caught up with him later to ask if that was drawn on or tattoo-ed on. His girlfriend had fun "coloring" him for the event. He seemed to be enjoying himself!

I neeeeed these socks! I could not catch up with the owner before they left the building. If you know where I can find them, let me know k?

It was a whole different kind of crown there. Everyone from babies all the way to grandparents were in attendance. From the way out there to the straight laced were there to cheer these teams on. I still don't have the whole scoring system down, well I don't actually have ANY of it down, but I had a great time watching.

You gotta love a coach who goes all out for his team, and bares his pasty white legs...... Awesome!

There was funky hair, outlandish socks, bright colors and plenty of enthusiasm to go around. I will definitely take Doodle and Lil C to one of these events. I think they would get a kick out of it!
