So Feb 14th (Lupercalia, Valentine's, etc) was a fund raiser for the Silicon Valley Roller Girls (Roller Derby Team) at Mission Ale house. It was an "Anti-Valentine's" event. They had a wheel of (mis) fortune and a raffle including "Win a date with a Derby Girl". It was fun!
I am not a huge fan of any kind of sporting event, but I do like to support my friends when they get involved in one.
Trisha "Double Cannons" and I have been friends for years, and it turns out I knew at least one other member of the team already (an acquaintance from karaoke).
To tell the truth, I do not think it would be that tough convincing me to come out and support them. Derby seems to involve lots lovely ladies sweating, getting bruises, and getting into fights. Many of them have died hair and tattoos. Pretty much sound like my kinda place! *wicked grin*
Trish even tried to talk me into becoming a ref. I am sure it would be fun, and I agreed to help out if I could, but I am not interested in that kind of commitment right now.
Their next event is another fund raiser on the 20th at Armadillo Willies. I will not be able to attend because that conflicts with the Chamber of Commerce meeting for Feb.
