Roller Derby Girls


So a friend of Betty's from work is a roller derby ref and we all went out to check out the Arch Rivals tonight. Not only was it a rockin' good time but we actually sat right next to Phyllis Smith from The Office. It is one of our favorite shows and one of the few shows that Mike and I always watch together. She is originally from St. Louis and was there to check out the action with her niece, who looked like she was on one of the other teams in the league. Phyllis was very sweet and totally patient with all of the people wanting pictures and autographs. The shot to the right is how close I was to her for the game. Mike was totally into the action and even has a new crush on Keligula from the M-80 Rockers. I don't think the kids were as into it but Ani approved of the fashion.


We were on the first row right in them middle of all the action, but this is the best shot I got of the game. Next time I'll bring my different camera lenses to get some better angles.

I remember as a kid, watching the girl's roller derby on tv all the time. Don't see that too much anymore!

Oh, funny! How strange to meet up with her at a roller derby event! Nice to hear that she was friendly and nice to everyone--sometimes "stars" can be disappointing.

Happy Mom's Day!

Wow...that's so funny. I was assuming this was a mother's day post and thought to myself...wow, her mom looks exactly like Phyllis from the Office. I'm so dumb- ha! Glad you had a great time. That would be a really interesting event to go to!

How exciting! I have never been to roller derby, but it looks like a lot of action.
