They are “Rollier than you”
Yes, we went to the Ladies Roller Derby of Utah Valley!
It took us a while to find the place, because every time we looked it up, it said the address was a Food 4 Less. Which it turned out it was, a closed down food for less, they had converted into a Derby rink. Now, I hate to see any business fail, BUT I worked at Food 4 Less, and it was THE WORST job I ever had. So, sufficed to say, that I was a little bit satisfied that it was a closed food for less.
Sweet signs on the way in:
The Utah Valley Legue logo:
I bought a tee shirt.
I was really excited to go! We had wanted to do this for years. We were told the match started at 6:00, so we arrived at 5:30, and no one was there. We were worried. But around 6:30 people started to show up, and we got started at 7.
We read the rules and did our best to figure out what was going on:
It was actually a private event, for friends and family. We were there to support a friend from Bike polo. The is Lexi:
Her Derby name is Triple Lexxx
Her number is 700c (like the tire size.)
For this event the league was divided into two teams:
(Our team, cuz that was where Lexi was playing)
And the Vampires:
It was seriously so much fun! I lost my voice from screaming.
Here is Karl trying to explain:
It is a fast paced game, with a ton of violence and drama.
Karen loved it!
Until she didn’t anymore.
We made to half time, where I won a CD in the Raffle!
We left after a few Jams, and headed home, exhausted and…edified. This league was really fun, because it was totally family friendly. No Alcohol, cursing or bad music. It was great!
