On a slightly different derby note, the Kansas City Banked Beauties asked me to guest-ref a home bout against the Naptown Roller Girls of Indianapolis. Although the infield was made of piecemealed plywood sheets, and I had never jam reffed a bout in my life, it was more fun than I expected.
As with any derby event, what made it really great was the wonderful people. New friends, and ones I hadn't seen in a long time!
Why do I always leave my mouthguard in when taking photos? Mama Breakdown likened me to a hillbilly or something similar as a result. So I may never win a DGD Best Mouthguard Smile Award, but at least my mouth is protected from impact?
This is the floor. Ow. Ow. Ow. I wiped out a couple times as a result, but had no real injuries.
Thanks to KCBB for having me!
