Toronto Roller Derby

On August 8 (yes, nearly a month ago, and I'm only just finding the time to write about it now) - a friend of mine invited me to go see the Toronto Roller Derby match between the Gore-Gore Rollergirls and the Death Track Dolls. I had never been to a Roller Derby before, and had no idea what the sport entailed. But I thought it would be super fun, and I was right! It also made for some interesting photos. Check them out:







I think it's super cool to have alternative sporting events like this in the city. It's a fun event that kids are welcome to attend (Saw plenty of parents there with children - and all the kids looked really cool. I guess that says something about the demographic!) It's also fairly inexpensive - especially when compared to other sporting/entertainment events around the city. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something to do!

I have always LOVED roller derby; I remember when I was younger, my dad watched it on tv all the time. :)

I've never really even known that it existed! LOL.
I'm told that this is much different than the version that would have been on when we were younger - it's all real, full contact, and intense!
It was super fun to watch :)

Awesome pics! I really should make time to go. The girl in the cube across from mine is the league director, I think. LOL :)
