Roller Derby Chicks Kick Ass!!

#InstaSize #crashzone #blackandyellow #uhoh #dangerzone #icandothis #houston #rollerderby

Every third Saturday of the month, the Bayou Music Center hosts the Houston Roller Derby. Guess who got to attend her first show?! Yup, you got it.. me!! I didn't know what to expect. I mean, I saw a couple videos on Youtube but that's not the same. 

Before we went in, we made sure to buy koozies and tshirts to support all the ladies! :] We saw two badass games. The Bayou City Bosses vs. The Psych Ward Sirens and The Valkyries vs. The Brawlers.  Both games were super entertaining. During the first game we were a bit confused.. by the second game we had most of the rules down. We will definitely be attending more games. If you decide to check this out, make sure you get there early if you're not getting VIP tickets. It's basically first come first serve and if you've got someone tall in front of you you're kinda SOL. For the second game we were right in the crash zone. I was a bit worried but nothing major happened. Lol!

The next day we went to the Boneyard Drinkery like most Sundays and ran into one of the refs from the game. Small world huh?! He explained the game a bit more and told us about some of the players..like Freight Train (picture above) She is a beast! Fast and coordinated like crazy! She's definitely one of our favorite jammers!

Visit the Houston Roller Derby site and check out when the games will be on. I swear you'll have a great time. These ladies are ruthless skaters and sweethearts off the track. Also, Houston Roller Derby has started Co-Op practices. I think it'll be interesting and maybe a bit dangerous, but I'm still down to watch it.

Don't forget to visit the Boneyard Drinkery for some awesome furkid time with great beer/wine and awesome food truck action. 

How was your weekend?! 

..till next time ;]
