  1. Hey, my wife plays for a roller derby team in the UK. It does tend to take over lives :)

    I’ve noticed a lot of derby themed tweets and was meaning to ask about it. Do you play for a team or are you just a loyal supporter? And which team may I ask?

  2. Sweet David… Derby is taking over the world. I am part of the Reign Valley Vixens fresh meat squad “The Crash Test Betties”. They are based out of Abbotsford BC. Haven’t passed my basics yet, but its coming along. That said I have become an uber fan of all the local derby teams and leagues in BC, and am spending an large portion of my time trying to make it to as many bouts as I can. Who does your wife play for… as I could well use a UK team to route for as well. Thank Gawd for live stream!

  3. She plays for The Lincolnshire Bombers. She’s in the B team, but occasionally gets to play in the A team bouts. You’ll have to catch some of them online although not all of them get put up. They’re one of the better Northern teams, but they’re still quite a way from teams like the London Rollergirls who get more of the international bouts. Speaking of which, some of our team went down to London to watch them play a Canadian team – Rocky Mountain. London got their arses kicked :)

  4. Rocky Mountain is a US team based out of Denver Colorado. Londons a fabulous team though I suspect they are a big underdog for the WFTDA championship this year. I’ll be routing for them as the only European team to make the trip.
