Wow what an amazing weekend this past weekend was. OCRG took 2nd to Bay Area. I was SO SO proud of my girls. It was fun to watch but SOOOOO hard to just WATCH! I have found that apparently I watch roller derby the same way that I play Super Mario Cart. When I want the jammer to duck, I duck. When I wan a blocker to hit, I lean sideways. I cant wait to get back into contact.
If I dont get to hit someone soon I am probably going to ….well…hit someone…
Its always so fun to watch derby tournaments. Its such a nice switch from what I’m used to for the last few years. LA was all about production value and fans and so much other fluff (and of course good derby too) that sometimes it was easy to lose track of the baiscs. I love these tournaments becuase its just derby. Lots and lots of hard hitting, fast skating, great derby. Food wise, traveling can be tricky if you dont plan ahead, plus there is always yummy but less than stellar things to eat at these events. You dont want to feel like your depriving yourself but at the same time its good to be aware so youre not just eating crap all weekend. The key is to find balance. If you are skating, this is especially important because corn dogs an hour before you game is going to drag you down for sure!
