Last night, I volunteered to juggle as part of the half time show for the Rose City Rollers to promote the upcoming juggling festival.

I watched a few bouts without being able to understand what was happening until I finally read through the program and it all made sense. Well… maybe…

Basically, one girl scores points by passing skaters from the other team. Who, of course, try to block her, shove her out of bounds, or simply knock her on her ass and roll over her fingers. Luckily she has her own team to hold those bitches at bay. It’s hard to tell if it’s serious but the crashes are real. Mostly I think it’s an excuse to skate hard and show off your tattoos and bruises.

If you like suicide girls you’ll love roller derby.
