Here at Nottingham Roller Derby we sure do love a good game day. The adrenaline, the passion… the pictures?
Today we’re looking at those pictures that tell a different kind of roller derby story – usually the one you thought wouldn’t be caught on camera.
Sometimes when you play roller derby; you’re just too cool for school.
And jamming is soooo easy…
And you’re blocking like “whatever”
Occasionally you’ll wish you were never caught on camera…
Like when you’re throwing daggers at your bench because they won’t let you call of the jam
Or you try to be intimidating but come off creepy.
Sometimes you might forget the camera’s there at all.
And not show off you’re super, awesome face.
Or forget that you could appear in the background.
When you have a little dance during timeout…
Or take a nap during line up.
And then there are those super, amazing times when you just take air.
Maybe you’re jamming…
but sometimes you’re blocking…
And then there’s the times when you’re just being a little bit weird.
Like licking each other.
Or mauling a ref
Sometimes you just take your job seriously … Nothing to see here.
Or you try not to look for bendy bones
Then there’s your concentration face… or rather there’s Coco’s concentration face #tonguesoutgunsout
And let’s not forget the crotch block.
But we can’t forget about the dancing, face-plants and malfunctioning kit…
Everyone do the conga!
Time to paarrrty
Taking a leap of faith
A little bit of crowd surfing
“You hit me like a wrecking ball”
Spot the missing toe stop
And finally there are the times when you just have a little bit of attitude…. or not
When you just don’t know what happened
Or you’re just taking the Pliss
When you’ve got your eyes on the opposition *Natastrophe wants to make it clear she loves her fellow roller derby players and is most definitely not swearing*
And finally when jamming is just too exhausting!
We love roller derby!
