Wordful Wednesday - Roller Derby Home Bout



DRDC lined up for gear check

Although I no longer play roller derby, I'm still an avid supporter of the local team.  Dark River Derby Coalition (DRDC) has been a part of my family for over five years.  This year's roster includes my daughter, Ginja Ninja, and my sister-in-law, Neacious.

I pay $10 for Logan to get in...only so he can play UNO with Rahjae the entire time!

Although I'm unable to attend every bout, I was able to see a home game recently.  DRDC played Quad City, with our team winning by over 300 points.

DRDC is currently at #129 in the world's rankings and continues climbing up.  From experience, I know all the blood, sweat and tears that goes into roller derby.  Any monies receives goes to a local charity.  This bout the monies went to Homeward Bound Waggin, Inc, an organization that provides humane care and treatment for all animals needing protection in the area.

Have you ever attended a roller derby bout?
What would your roller derby name be? (Mine was Pain Dispatcher).

That's good you're still a supporter. I try and support things I'm past in life. I bet they love that you come to watch them.

Pain Dispatcher is a ferocious name. :) That's cool that the monies go to charity.

I think my roller derby name would be Big Mama Broken Ankles because that's what my reality would be if I tried to get in that rink....

I have only saw them on TV where they knock each other around. This is another thing I would have liked to try in my younger day but I figured I would fall and break something.
