I finished going through the photos I took at the roller derby in Spanish Fork a few weeks ago.
It was exciting to watch our home team the Molly Morbids beat the Portenuf Valley Bruisers from Pocatello, Idaho. All of the ladies were AMAZING.
After the game, Pain In The Nikki came over and chatted with us. N works with her husband and we had sat with him during the bout and tried to learn the finer points of the game. Nikki told Erica and I that they were having a “fresh meat” training camp in July and that we should come skate (!) I’m tickled by the idea but don’t think I’m up for it. It seems like a fantastic workout but the commute down would be too much. Also, um, the very real possibility of breaking some bones.
But it was very flattering–I don’t attend many sporting events where afterwards they tried to recruit me to join 🙂
For a detailed recap of the bout and more information about the team, see the Happy Valley Derby Darlin’s site.
There’s another bout on June 9th. Hanging out in a vacant Food4Less and watching these ladies compete makes for a fun and unique evening–maybe I’ll see you there!
