My friend Nikki in action!
Last night I went to the North Star Roller Girls Roller Derby with my sister and some of her friends. Her husband was playing with his band Queen of France at the half time show. I have gone to a few bouts before and had a lot of fun. My friend Nikki is on the team the Violent Femmes which makes it even more fun to watch. The first time I saw a bout I wanted to be a roller girl so bad! Last night just solidified it for me. My only problem is that I know how to roller blade but not sure that I could actually roller skate. I decided that I am going to give it a try one weekend at a roller rink and see if I can even do it. I remember doing it when I was very young and also remember that things may not have gone the greatest. Hopefully since I am older and so much wiser now I can make it happen.
My biggest fear you ask? Breaking another bone. I’ve talked to a few people and this is what holds them back as well. Plus watching some of the girls last night scared the crap out of me! They are vicious!
Wish me Luck!
