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!
