Rather than see a movie, go to a bar or other typical outing, Matt and I joined a BGI friend and her husband for the Roller Derby Championships at Cow Palace one Saturday night. The night featured matches with the San Francisco Bay Bombers, Brooklyn Red Devils and LA Firebirds. Big surprise, hometown Bombers left as the champions.
None of us had any idea what we were in for, so we arrived, got some beers and popcorn and settled into our seats. We promptly whipped out an iPhone to look up the "rules" of Roller Derby and never quite figured out what was going on. I think that's the point? The people watching, however, was superb.
The gals were pretty entertained but the boys, I think, would have preferred an alternate plan for the night. An experience, all the same.
