Recently a friend of mine joined Roller Derby and I had the privilege of discovering Roller Derby with her team last week. I met the Mama’s of the team, Jupiter & Punch Face and then I got geared up. Pandora showed me the ropes, and let me just tell you—these girls are ATHLETES. Squat-skating was so challenging–my legs were BURNING!
I tried to block, but almost threw my back out, my target was so thick. It was only a few hours, but I couldn’t stop smiling. In another life, perhaps, I will be a true derby girl—and I will steal my friend’s name: Domiknitter–PERFECTION!
For now, you can call me Little Miss Sharp, or Sharpie for short (get it, Glass? sharp?). Who knew there was another sport for my sparkle skirt?
