My husband and I are going to see the Rat City Rollergirls put the hurt on 2 other traveling teams tomorrow. I'm really excited about this, I have a major fan-crush on the Throttle Rockets Luna Negra. However somehow I managed to invite my parents and both of them decided, separately, that it would be fun. This has surprised me immensely, so much that I'm still having trouble understanding it. Dad went to a bout or more in the early days of derby, but Mom has never been. I think they might just be amused that I'm enjoying this and want to see what the fuss is about, but I'm not sure. I really hope they just enjoy it and go with the crazy energy of the bout. Party poopers are no fun at all.
