Dustin and I finally had the opportunity to really get to know Savannah yesterday. We joined a group of people from Dustin’s work at a roller derby bout. One of his co-workers is a jammer for the Hostess City Hellions, the B team for the Savannah Derby Devils. The bout was so exciting, and Dustin’s co-worker actually scored the winning point in the final jam of the bout, making it even more fun for the people who were there to root for her.
We had always wanted to go to a derby bout, but never really had the chance in Indiana. Whenever we knew about one, we had something else we needed to get done at the same time (mostly wedding stuff). It’s unfortunate, too, because we have a friend on the derby team in Muncie and another friend on one of the derby teams in Indianapolis.
Anyway, we loved it. The atmosphere is unreal and the game is fast-paced and fun to watch when you understand it.
After both bouts, we went traveling around Savannah. At about midnight, we stumbled upon a life-sized game of Bananagrams in Ellis Square. It was amazing and fantastic, and I’m pretty sure I love this city because of it.
