Whip It!

So you probably know, roller derby has pretty much taken over my life. Tonight the new movie Whip It opens, directed by Drew Barrymore. It's all about roller derby, so if you're interested in the sport and want to know more, check out the film! Here's the trailer:

Sorry guys, had to remove it, you can find it on youtube!


Here's to hoping UPS is right and my new pads/helmet will get here today!

I loved Whip It. Its my new favourite movie. I never really knew much about roller derby but I loved it. I checked out some teams in my area and can't wait to get involved. I have to practice a bit first though. I went straight out after the movie and bought a pair of rollerblades (couldn't find actual skates anywhere). I drove to the park, put my blades on while I was sitting in the car, then fell out of the car. Its obviously been a while and who knew the wheels would move so fast???? I grazed my knee and hand and broke my nail down so far it bled but I still got skating and felt like a kid again. I didn't realise how much I loved and missed it. Roller derby here I come!
