More Derby Action

Friday night it was time once again to visit the Roller Dolls down at the Coliseum. And this time, we were playing against a tough, out of state team, Texas Rollergirls Honkey Tonk Heartbreakers. I don't like them... they stomped us. I'm not sure why, and I don't want to make excuses, but we were missing some of our better players for whatever reason.

The Jammers ready to start the action;

Crash Dance is always ready to roll;

There was lots of great action, though The Mile High Club was often playing catch-up;

As always at the roller-derby, there were plenty of people dressed in their finest clothes;

Or they are primped with fantastic hair styles - I'm not sure what's going on here, but I'm guessing it has something to do with striped polo shirts and possibly too much of the ol' PBR;

For halftime with the Roller Dolls, you never know what kind of show you are going to get, but I've yet to be disappointed. Last time was a wedding, the time before was disco-dancing roller skaters and before that was competition type synchronized dancing jump-rope people. This time it was a demonstration of "flyball" one of those competitions that makes you almost start to think that dog-show people are "normal". But they aren't... but flyball is pretty cool. I should build a race track and have all the friends with dogs come up and see what happens.

Also at halftime it was up to DumpTruck and one of the refs to decide who had the best banner, and it took some serious discussion;

Bonnie was the newbie at the derby this time, and that meant it was her turn to get her picture with DumpTruck!
