Roller Derby!

Have you seen the movie Whip It? We really like it. So when we found out there was a Roller Derby team here in Boise, we HAD to go...it only took us a year but we finally made it. It was so fun!

It's kind of hard to take Roller Derby seriously since there's so many gimmicks - silly nicknames and crazy outfits - but it's actually a very interesting sport. I used to think it was just skating around in circles while mindlessly hitting people, but surprisingly there is strategy involved and a lot of rules, more than you would think there would be. And now, I kind of want to join a team! I think I would make a good Jammer. Probably won't happen, but it looks fun.
