Posted my recap on the Rose City Rollers blog during lunch today.  Here’s my favorite picture (OF ME) from this weekend. You ain’t going nowhere, Boise girl.

Time for new knee pads

Yikes. But the last time I was at Oaks rink, they didn’t have Scabs.  I like the Scabs!  They’re like a hug for your knee. Hmph.

AoA vs. Treasure Valley

I get to play with AoA (aka Axles of Annihilation, aka Axles, aka the Rose City Rollers’ B-team) on Saturday again against Treasure Valley from Boise.  Yay for fun! We played Treasure Valley last year at Spudtown Knockdown and beat them one and a half times. It went a little like this:  Yeeeaaah, when I get […]

Time to consider new wheels

I went to travel team practice last night in the same old, fat, sludgy wheels I used on the polished concrete in Coos Bay.  Pyramid sprints? Terrible.  Dragging ass the entire way.  Yeeesh.

Dirty? Check. Sunburned? Check. Possibly bruised from a tangle with an underwater tree? Check. Taped for roller derby practice? Check. Properly painted to ensure good luck for next bout: Nope. They should be red for this weekend, not purple for the last.  Oh, well! At last I’m packed. I’ll be away at the coast this […]

Sitting out

It looks like I won’t be skating at travel team scrimmage tonight, since I’m getting my skates back with new plates an hour before the scrimmage starts.  I’m not taking the risk of being out of control while playing the Wheels of Justice, especially with regionals being so close.  It’s a bummer, especially when I’m […]
