So a lot's been going on recently. The biggest update being a new job. I finally join the working masses. But right before I started working at Sallie Mae I had an opportunity to have some fun with some friends. Me and my friend Ewzzy went to a Naptown Roller Girls match. I had no idea that Indy had roller girls. It was a great night, and the 1960's misogynistic in me definitely enjoyed watching girls on roller skates with cute nicknames, like Hero-shima and Amoosh Boosh, checking each other to the floor.
What really threw me and Ewzzy for a loop was the fact that the demo at the event was not what we expected it to be. We expected a massive cult of counter-culture emos and alt girls, lesbians and gay men... and there were alot of them, but it attracted over 4000 people from all different walks of life.
Maybe it was the funnel cake? It definitely wasn't the color commentary guys. Here's the thing, when you have a two-man announcer team, you need a straight man and a color man, Like Good Ol' JR and Jerry "The King" Lawler. These guys kept screaming and telling us to buy Naptown Barrel Roll - Yagermeister and Root Beer (a foul tasting concoction, I'm sure.)
I took some pictures on my camera... most of which came out blurry... My shaky hands didn't things any. I guess that means it's time to upgrade to a DSLR... Maybe once I have a couple checks in the bank I go snag one.
The next roller derby event in Indy is in January... I will totally be there.
