They didn’t have the greatest night, but it was fun nonetheless. I love the energy and camaraderie amongst the players and the crowd during games.
I also picked up (and got signed) a great coffee table book about roller derby.
It includes photographs and interviews with derby players and refs. It’s fascinating to read about what goes through a player’s head during a jam – a lot of strategy and a lot of emotion/aggression. Reading it has actually helped me understand the game a bit better as well. Check it out.
