The second bout of the newly-formed Bellingham Roller Betties provided some seriously fun entertainment last night. I've never been much of a sports fan, but then not very many sporting events feature crazy-tough women in fishnets bashing into each other at high speed as they race around an indoor track on roller skates. Not only is it really exciting to watch, it's all-locally organized (impressively so), with eclectic community sponsors like Planned Parenthood, Harley Davidson, the Co-op and Casa Que Pasa. Aaand there's a beer garden. :)
If you live around here, you should definately check it out. If you don't live around here, you might still be in luck - aparently the sport is growing in popularity and new leagues are forming across the country.
