My First Roller Derby

Yesterday I went to see my first live roller derby. I was coming home from playing a little bit of tennis and saw the signs advertising the bout at the fairgrounds. Erica was out of town so I called up my boy Collins and we hit the scene. I’m not a derby expert, obviously, but we picked up the gist of it pretty quickly.

Last night’s bout was between the Boulder County Bomber All Stars and the Jailhouse Jawbreakers from Pueblo Derby Devil Dollz. Introduced with names like Catastro Phoebe, Joan Cusmack, Ringo Skarr, and Miss Fortune Cookie, it promised to be a good night. For the uninitiated, things seemed to get off to a slow start, but we were not disappointed as the action heated up soon enough.

The All Stars pulled away in the second half and won 223-126 but unlike some sports, this was exciting all the way to the end and I think we’ll be heading back out for their next home match. Anyway, I’m not the best sports action photographer, but I think I captured the evening pretty well. Enjoy the photos!
