My most-read sports blog is actually Blazer’s Edge. Yes, I play derby, but I’ve been a Blazers fan since the 2000 playoffs (which will never be spoken of again on this blog or in my presence). I wear my Blazers wristband over my wrist guards during the NBA playoffs. Boys have been compelled to say, “Wow, […]

My boss wants me to wear my skates to work tomorrow for Halloween. I guess that’s fine. I lug them there a few days a week anyway – why not make good time between my desk and the water cooler? Here’s the real question:  Can I sit on my balance ball with skates on? Yes, I […]

The Rosebuds explain roller derby: The Rosebuds are the Rose City Rollers’ junior league, ages 12-17. They have enough skaters now for four home teams and an all-star travel team. Speaking of which: their all-star team went to Denver this weekend  to play the Rocky Mountain Rollerpunks and won 296-43. Nice work, ladies! The Rosebuds will […]
