Last weekend we went to a roller derby event. One of our friends here in Edmonton invited us to a match, as a colleague of hers was in one of the teams. It was hilarious! I'm always fascinated by sub-cultures that are totally different to mine. This was one of them; a little bit emo, a little bit punk, and a whole lot of black patterned tights & lycra. With names like 'Break Away', 'Brazilian Whacks' & 'Bam Bam', it was no wonder there are some wild 'jams' of pushing & shoving. I had to google the rules and while I don't think I'll be taking it up anytime soon, it was fun, cheap night out.
Have you ever seen this sport other than the movies? Or maybe you're on a team, how did you get involved?
