I recently got a comment on this blog from someone in Belgium. With the internet being global, this isn't too much of a surprise, but still I think it's pretty cool. To think, girls all around the WORLD are helping to build the same fun and unique sport that I am so in love with.
I've mentioned before, roller derby is international. I've seen three teams from Canada (Toronto, Montreal, and Rideau Valley) play, as well as the London Roller Girls. As if it doesn't blow my mind enough that there are teams all around my own country, let alone two in my immediate area and 15+ in my own state.
I would like to say WELCOME to the derby community to one of New York's newest leagues: the Oz Roller Girls, from Oswego, NY, who I met this past weekend at the Assault City mixed scrimmage. This league was formed back in the spring and have been gearing up for their 2011 season. A few of their girls helped NSO the scrimmage on Saturday and they were great!
