In our “rookie” expo game two years ago, Acid, Hockey Honey, Mel Mangles and I were all on the same team. That’s kind of funny, thinking about it now.

On standing around instead of skating

That was Rat City’s idea.  When Assaultin’ Pepa came around for the victory lap, she announced, “Sorry! We didn’t want to do that!”  For better or worse, it almost worked for Rat. I have the feeling that WFTDA will continue to look at the rules for starting jams.   The parts with roller skating were really […]

Here’s something I probably should have thought of – since I didn’t eat dinner last night, I am ravenous today.  Thank the derby gods for Effy, who pointed me to some string cheese.  Protein!  I might need another one (and another granola bar, etc.) to make it to the 4pm break.  I’m supposed to be […]

You’re in town for roller derby! That sounds fun. Let me guess: you want to have a Portland-tastic time, while being geographically tied to a not-very-exciting part of town (the Rose Quarter), and would prefer not to have to walk more than ten minutes in order to get to food, booze, etc., whenever you might need […]

Busy busy busy busy…

This is my busiest time at work, and my co-worker moved away, leaving me with a bunch of that workload.  Westerns on top of that is not helping, since I’ll be at the venue all weekend and I have an as-yet-undefined job that may or may not be very time-consuming.  So, I’m kind of working […]

London 137, Montreal 135

Oh, Montreal.  I only watched the last ten minutes or so, but they could have won if they had just held the inside line on a couple of key plays in the last five minutes, including that last scoring pass.  That game is also making me do some serious thinking about end-of-game clock management.  Any […]

Philly 153, Charm City 127

First of all, Iwould like to apologize to all the East Region teams that I picked this weekend. I have one game bracketed correctly so far. Apparently, it’s terrible luck for me to pick you to win. As such, my West Region bracket is staying under wraps so nothing is jinxed. Anyways, you guys. That […]

Philly 85, Charm City 42 at the half

Halftime!  If I understand this correctly, Dolly Rocket has fouled out of the game before the half?  And the person who is serving her time has FOUR MINUTES to serve? No wonder that took a seven-minute official timeout. So, what did she do?  Back block someone out of bounds while they were down and she was traveling in […]

Stupid #$(&*%#$ computer

Due to a ill-timed viral infection of my home computer, I will be without internets until some undefined time tomorrow.  Will someone text me if Dolly Rocket punches a chick  in the face, or if Montreal spontaneously combusts, or what have you?  There is no way I’m staying at work to watch Boston vs. Charm. Thanks […]
