Captain Karen...Roller Derby Queen?

Friday, November 07, 2008
While visiting my Facebook page today, I glanced over at one of those annoying advertisements on the side. The one that caught my eye was for the Oil City Derby Girls. That's right, Edmonton apparently has a roller derby league! And guess what...they're going to be having tryouts next month! Alas, because I'm saving up my pennies for the trip in March, if I tried out and was accepted, I wouldn't be able to afford the equipment costs. However, I've sent off an email to the team and expressed my interest as well as letting them know that I WILL be trying out next year!!!! I have wanted to start trying new things and pushing the envelope on my comfort zone...this would definately qualify! Plus, I'd get to kick some ass.

You are absolutely the first person I've ever known who has announced the desire to become a roller derby queen. Excellent!

Roller derby? Is that like American Gladiators on skates?

Cool. And I'm sure you know it's almost the law that you must have tattoos to be a roller-derby girl, so you're already halfway there!

Actually there are two leagues in Edmonton - the other being the E-Ville Roller Derby League. Just FYI

Well, I talked my youngest daughter out of this by reminding her of how much she likes to be hurt,(NOT) and that the team appeared to be mostly very muscular gay girls . . . and her being sort of delicate female, that it could get reeeeaaaallllly interesting...anyway it fizzled out.

So keep us posted, LOL! We will want pictures of course. And why not go ahead and try out - you never know - they might like you so much they would take up a collection for equipment - if its meant to be, it shall be....
