Saturday Night at the Roller Derby, really!

Some of you may remember my post last week about spraining my ankle in a Roller Derby accident. Well I was just teasing. I really just tripped over my furry friend named Theodore.

Well, in doing so I snapped a tendon in my ankle and will be having surgery next Thursday to repair it. So I am wearing this fun boot until then and after next week I may be in a cast, who knows. I may stick with telling people it was Roller Derby, it sounds a bit more interesting than, I tripped over the dam dog!

Ok, so after writing that post I was really jealous of all the pictures I had posted and I kept thinking how fun it would actually be to go to a Roller Derby event. I couldn't believe it when Missy from The Jensen's Crazee Life, sent me an e-mail telling me there was going to be a Roller Derby event at the HyVee Hall, in Des Moines that Saturday. I knew I had a lot of convincing to do to get my husband to go, but he finally agreed and I think he enjoyed himself!

Mid Iowa Rollers vs the Mahaska Mayhem

My husband took this trying to get the lights and the American Flag!

This is the announcement of each player!

This is what is called a Flat Track. There are very few banked tracks which is the oval slanted track.

This is Mizz Lolli Pop Ya

This is Wonton Hammer #6 w/Egg Roll

This guy with the red mohawk is the coach for the Mid Iowa Rollers

Notice their green fuzzy monster leg warmers!

My husband said he needed to document that I was really at the roller derby and snapped a picture of me enjoying a brewsky and sporting a koozie with the Mid Iowa Rollers logo on it!

I don't know if we will be regulars at the Roller Derby, but at least I can say I went to one and had fun!

Well, I'm off for a pre-op for my surgery! Have a great Friday and take it from me, don't trip over any furry friend, it's not fun!

Ouch, ouch and triple ouch. Wishing you a speedy recovery and lovin' that 1) you went to the roller derby and 2) aren't afraid to admit it!

Sue said...

Now, for me, that sounds like some "kick ass" time you had there, brewsky and all!! You have to watch the Drew Barrymore movie about Roller Derby! Good luck with your surgery. Hopefully you won't have to have a cast, they suck!!

Take care, Sue

Kim said...

That sounds like a fun night out. Something different, for sure.

Wishing you a speedy recovery! Poor thing.

Stephanie said...

Oh no! Good luck and hope all goes well!

Nancy said...

Now that looks like a fun time! I will be thinking of you and hoping for a quick recovery!

Theodore looks way to cute to cause such injury- good luck on your surgery next Thursday! Nice pics of the roller derby, looks like it was a blast!

Darlene said...

That sounds like my everyday occurence; tripping over the dogs. Since we have 3, there is a big risk. Feel better! - what a crazy evening. Sounds like fun!

Thanks for your comment. To answer your question; my sister does know that I post but I don't think she looks very often. I'd better send her a link and an email.

Mandi said...

Oh my gosh I can't believe you really have to have surgery! I'm so sorry! Is this an outpatient thing?

I seriously had no idea there were real roller derbys. That looks soo fun.

I love the way you deal with life's little mishaps! You rock Megan!!!

My Grama's Soul said...

Just had to make a quick comment about your situation......I just got out of one of those boots. I broke my toe....luckily it did not require surgery. As an aside, i decorated my boot just to be a little sassy!!

Ouch on the leg, but high five on the roller derby! How much fun! I'm also jealous of your brewskie - I could use one after the evening I've had!
