Cincinnati Rollergirls

23 03 2009

are amazing!

Seriously, thanks to @MissPrint95 ‘s invitation (she is on the team and she is filled with the awesome), we got to watch what, I think, is the coolest sport known to mankind… the rollerderby.
Don’t believe me, check out the Cincinnati Rollergirls‘ YouTube video:


They whooped some serious Knoxville butt on Saturday night (one of the teams beat the other Knoxville team by an absurd 175-38)– an event I had the pleasure of enjoying with AmyInOhio and Katy (of Kate’s Random Musings), with @RadioCarla and Debba of Girlfriendology rolling by to say hey. Apparently, we have a really good team here in town, something like 17th or 19th out of the 60 nationally ranked teams.

By the end of the night, we had become so used to scream bizarre names — “Blu Bayou” (blew by you), “Sk8-crime,” “8-her,” “Rockalottapus,” “Karma Krash,” etc. — and had become normalized to the terminology (“the jam,” “lead jammer,” “pivot,” etc.) that we were practically professionals. 
#Cincyrollergirls kind of rocked Knox!!! on TwitPic
Seriously, a great night out planned by the growing Cincinnati Imports crew.

Can’t wait for the next round on the 11th of April when Cincinnati goes up against Cleveland!!!

Don’t know what RollerGirls are all about or how to play, check out this excellent instructional video. I understand, now, the white board in the center of the ring — they are totalling up the minor penalties.

Update: Check out the pics from 5chw4r7z.
