We loved the derby

The Jammer

I took my 7 year old to roller derby last weekend.  She LOVED it.  And, hey?  What’s not to love!?

It helped that her school friend’s mom rolls as “Green Venom” –not to mention, that my daughter got to sit with her friend all night.  It also helped that the half time show was some crazy BMX bikers doing flips and tricks.

But, really, it’s just good knocking around family fun . . . on four wheels . . . with some strong, female athletes making a bit of contact.  (No fist fights like hockey.)  What’s a little pushing and blocking to win?  I like the female empowerment.  Roller derby girls rock and my daughter loved it!

So did I.
