Roller Derby Girls… Brawlin’ Bettie’s
My friends had tickets and invited me to go… It was to see the Brawlin’ Bettie’s.
Who are the Brawlin’ Bettie’s?
Well apparently Santa Barbara has a women’s Roller Derby team! Wow! Who knew… Well, I guess a lot of people… Just not me! They actually have a following!
I needed to take a break from staring at the computer… aka working/editing photos and decided to join them. They had seen the “Bettie’s” before and promised a good time filled with action, plus there would be beer and a food truck with BBQ… Kind of hard to say no to that!
The only Roller Derby I had ever seen was on tv… And, that was when I was a little kid. I was impressed! All I can say is these girls kick ass!
I’m ready to join the team! I’ve even picked my name… Jammin’ Julie! Oh yeah!
I won’t tell anyone that I haven’t even roller bladed for a really long time & hmmm… Not really sure if I’ve ever even had roller skates attached to my feet!
But, in my head… I’m a Brawlin’ Bettie!
