My bff Maria is pretty badass. So badass in fact, that she is on the North Star Roller Girls. For those of you who don't know what roller derby is, it's basically full contact roller skating around a big loop where teams try to advance their own skaters while blocking the opposing team. Maria was drafted to the Violet Femmes this year- 1 of only 2 rookies taken- and her first bout was Friday night at the Mpls Convention Center.
Maria looked awesome out there with all the other veteran girls and, despite watching her fall a few times (they all do!) it was a lot of fun!
